An Evening at the Hotel California with living legend and Four-time Grammy award winner Don Felder
Don Felder, Grammy-award winner, Rock and Roll Hall-of- Fame member, and New York Times best-selling author performing at the Paramount Hudson Valley on Friday, May 27th.
Don Felder is renowned as a former lead guitarist of The Eagles, one of the most popular and influential rock groups of our time. The band’s record-setting compilation Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) sold over 29 million copies in the U.S. alone and was awarded by the RIAA the top-selling album of the 20th Century. Currently Don and the Eagles have sold more than 83.5 million albums. A member of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1998, Felder served as a member of The Eagles for 27 years, putting his mark on numerous Eagles milestones. Felder originated the music and co-wrote The Eagles’ biggest hit–the iconic, Grammy-studded smash “Hotel California” –along with fan favorites like “Victim of Love” and “Those Shoes”. He became immediately celebrated for his lyrical, signature guitar work on legendary songs like “Hotel California,” “One of These Nights,” “New Kid in Town,” and numerous more. “Hotel California” was recently voted the Number 1 best 12 string guitar song in the world by Guitar World magazine.
After leaving the Eagles in 2001, Felder also became a New York Times bestselling author when his riveting confessional memoir “Heaven and Hell: My Life in The Eagles” proved a major commercial triumph upon publication in 2008 and went on to become a New York Times best seller.
In the past three years, the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater has set the bar high for well-branded, world renowned entertainment in the Hudson Valley arts community. The Paramount is committed to promoting local artists as opening artists such as upcoming opening act, Dana Edelman. Dana Edelman started performing on the New England circuit in the late 90’s and received much support from local roots radio stations. He relocated to New York in 2001 and was signed to Segue Records, an independent label that dissolved just before his Segue produced CD was released. In 2010, Dana released his latest full-length CD “Blue Roses” to fine reviews and national airplay on roots-based stations.
Dana also performs with “His Slammin’ Band”, comprised of legendary drummer Victor Jones (Stan Getz, Chaka Kahn) and the extremely tasty New York-based guitarist Chris Foley (Thisway, Arlen Roth). Dana has opened for America, Richie Havens, Martin Sexton and more.
