Students who are seeking to paint a convincing representation will advance substantially in his workshop, while those who wish to attain a higher degree of insight into their subjects will also be pleased.

Remaining tickets will be released to the public on Tuesday, August 20, 2019.     About the Show:   Best of the Eagles (BOTE) was established in 2012 by guitarist/vocalist Joe Vadala and a group of professional musicians who individually have an auspicious pedigree, are passionate about their love of the Eagles music and who have all worked with numerous national touring artists. BOTE is the most exact interpretation of the music of the Eagles in America, bar none!   Each member mirrors his counterpart in the Eagles instrumentally and vocally. However, this is no simple copy band or impersonator act but rather a group of excellent musicians who expertly and authentically re-create the songs, the music, the vocals and the magical aura of one of America’s greatest rock bands. After selling out many venues in the region including the Pollak Theatre at Monmouth University, BOTE looks forward to sharing a great night of Eagles hits.   [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OMu94AK87k]     Tickets:   Obstructed: $14.00 Value: $20.00 Standard: $36.00 Premium: $46.00 Box: $72.00   Tickets to this…
