About


The members of Alter Eagles came together for love of Eagles music. Composed of military veterans and civic minded musicians the band routinely performs for charity events and fundraisers.  They pooled their talents to provide the most accurate live recreation of the greatest American Band of all time, The Eagles. As one instant fan noted, “I’ve seen the Eagles 3 times, and these guys sounded so close to the original it was scary!”
