EACC will present classic rock hit-makers, Orleans, on Saturday, October 22nd at 7:30 p.m. at the EACC Fine Arts Center. Tickets are available online or by calling 870-633-4480, ext. 352.
Platinum hit-makers Orleans are celebrating 50 YEARS of live performances. Praised and respected by their peers for their songwriting skills, instrumental prowess and classic trademark harmonies, their iconic radio hits, including "Still The One," "Dance With Me," and "Love Takes Time" still resonate with audiences of all ages thanks to continued airplay on Classic Rock radio, television, film and streaming services.
Orleans has produced a body of work spanning 17 albums and several DVDs, and they continue to be in demand for live shows, as they have been for nearly 5 decades.
Over time, Orleans has enjoyed great success, but have also experienced tragedy. The untimely death of Wells Kelly in 1984 and the sudden passing of mainstay Larry Hoppen in 2012 promoted the return of co-founder and former U.S. Congressman John Hall, now retired from the road band. Co-Founder Lance Hoppen and longtime bandmates Lane Hoppen and Fly Amero are now joined by Nashville veterans Brady Spencer and Tom Lane on drums and guitar. Together, the band faithfully delivers the musical elements crowds have come to expect from the class act with power and integrity.
Since their humble beginnings in Woodstock NY and throughout countless worldwide tours, Orleans has set some very high standards and they continue to meet and exceed those standards at every show, to the delight of audiences everywhere.
Tickets for Orleans are $44 and are available online, by calling 870-633-4480, ext. 352, or in person at the Fine Arts Center Ticket Office. Season subscription packages are available and save 20%. The EACC Fine Arts Center is located at 1700 Newcastle Road in Forrest City, just off Interstate 40.
