The Desperados – Interview – Stephanie J Bartik.

RRX: Hey there, music lovers! Today, we have a special treat for you. We’re here with Ernie LaRouche, one of the talented musicians from THE DESPERADOS – The Eagles Tribute band. Ernie, thanks for joining us.

Ernie LaRouche: Pleasure to be here, thanks for having me.

RRX: So, Ernie, tell us a bit about THE DESPERADOS. What inspired you all to pay tribute to The Eagles?

Ernie LaRouche: Well, The Eagles have been a huge influence on all of us. Their music is timeless, and we wanted to pay homage to that. Plus, we all share a deep love for classic rock, so forming a tribute band seemed like a natural fit.

RRX: That’s awesome. How did you all come together as a band?

Ernie LaRouche: It actually started with a few of us playing together at gigs.
Scott Bentley and Mark Caruso also play in my main band ERNIE LAROUCHE BAND.  That’s how we knew each other and found we had a common love for The Eagles music.
We knew we needed all LEAD singers to make this work, so we asked Steve Hymowech and Johnny Clifford to join us.

We quickly realized we had something special, so we decided to take it to the next level and form DESPERADOS. It’s been a journey ever since.

RRX: Sounds like it! Now, you’ve got a big show coming up at The Strand Theater. What can fans expect from the performance?

Ernie LaRouche: Oh, it’s going to be a blast. We’ve put a lot of effort into capturing The Eagles’ signature sound and vibe, so fans can expect to hear all their favorite hits performed with passion and energy. It’s going to be a real trip down memory lane.

RRX: I bet it will be. And what do you love most about performing live?

Ernie LaRouche: The connection with the audience, definitely. There’s nothing quite like the energy you feel when you’re up on stage, feeding off the crowd’s enthusiasm. It’s electric.

RRX: Absolutely. Now, for anyone out there who’s on the fence about coming to the show, what would you say to convince them?

Ernie LaRouche: I’d say, don’t miss out on a chance to experience the magic of live music. Whether you’re a die-hard Eagles fan or just love good rock and roll, this is going to be a night to remember. So, grab your tickets, bring your friends, and let’s make it a party!

Interviewer: Well said, Ernie. Thanks for chatting with us, and best of luck with the show.

Ernie LaRouche: Thanks so much. Can’t wait to see everyone there!
