Band of Oz at the Eagles Nest

Band of Oz at the Eagles Nest

Eagles Nest Rockin Country Bar
1723 Parkview Dr
Chesapeake, VA  23320 (Map)

The Band of Oz is a prominent band of the beach music genre. Starting in the mid-1960s with high school students, the band turned professional in the early-1970s with a core group mostly from the Greenville, North Carolina Rose High School Stage Band, that featured Chuck French on trumpet, Gary Warren saxophone, Randy Hignite keyboards, Jim Heidenreich drums, Johnnie Byrd bass, Buddy Johnson vocals and Keith Houston guitar. In 1971 Billy Bazemore replaced Johnson. In 1978, the group recorded and released their first single Shaggin. This was followed by Star of My Life in 1979, and national radio airplay. They performed 200 to 300 shows per year throughout the 1980s amidst massive personnel restructuring. In 1995 they released the hit single Shama Lama Ding Dong, the People's Choice Song of the Year at that year's Cammy Awards, and one of the most requested beach songs of all time. In 1997, the band was inducted into the Beach Music Hall of Fame. This is a ticketed event. For more information and tickets contact Larry at 252-455-1515... See MoreSee Less

Tucker Beathard Concert.

Thursday, July 21 (9:00pm) - Friday, July 22 (2:00am)

Tucker Beathard Concert.

Eagles Nest Rockin Country Bar
1723 Parkview Dr
Chesapeake, VA  23320 (Map)

Its the official Pre Party for the Dierks Bentley Concert. Tucker Beathard is opening up for Dierks at the Ampitheater and he's playing here the night before. We will be giving away front row pit tickets to the concert, many regular tickets. Plus some lucky fan will get to go back stage and meet Dierks before the show starts! Time of the concert here at the nest is subject to change as we get closer to the date. Tucker Beathard is an unapologetic troublemaker. When asked to guess why he got into so much trouble growing up in Nashville, he says that maybe it was some sort of rebellion against his father, famed songwriter Casey Beathard. Or maybe he was acting out to steal attention away from his brother, who the 20-year-old describes as a “perfect child.” Or “Maybe I just like it,” he adds with a sheepish smile. The middle of three Beathard boys is best friends with his older brother, University of Iowa starting quarterback C.J. Beathard. He also has nothing but respect for his father — especially the hard work he put in to raise the family. There’s a lot of pride in Tucker’s voice as he talks about watching the family move up and seeing Casey go from waiting tables to dining with superstars like Kenny Chesney and Eric Church. “I was always kind of taught growing up that nothing comes easy,” Beathard — whose new The Demos Vol. 1 EP was released in October — says. “You gotta work for it. So I understand that and it’s a process. I don’t want anything handed to me.” Tucker Beathard is the inspiration behind Church’s hit song “Homeboy,” co-written by Casey Beathard. Do the math and you’ll figure out Tucker was barely a teenager when he started stirring up trouble and getting suspended from school. “I think a better question would be what didn’t I do,” he says when pushed for specifics. Tucker Beathard Facebook “I’ve always had a more rebellious side. I was just trying to find myself and going down some different paths to try things, and getting in trouble.” Unfortunately, the “Rock On” singer isn’t generous with the details, only revealing he was somewhat lost back then. He has matured since. That said, there’s still wild in his eyes. You don’t need to hear him admit to embracing his rebellious, experimental side to know he’s prone to … adventure. You will need to hear his EP to know he’s much more than just the son of a country hitmaker. Blink 182 is the band that inspired Beathard to pick up a guitar, and he says there’s remnants of guitarist Tom DeLonge’s licks in every song he plays. From there you’ll find tributes to ‘70s rockers and Bob Seger. “The only country I listened to was my dad’s demos,” Beathard admits, “So when it came to me songwriting, I always looked up to how he wrote songs.” His lyrics are personal, but accessible. Love and love-lost songs make up a few of the songs on The Demos Vol. 1, but “Momma and Jesus” stands out from the rest. The bluesy biography is the best showcase of the gritty rock-country sound fans have started to love him for. His smoky voice is light on twang, but thick with defiance. “So I’m gonna shoot this last light out / Get a little lost before I get found / I’m gonna burn this last one down / And then turn it around / Before momma and Jesus / Run out of reasons / For not giving up on me,” he sings at the chorus....
