Darrel Monson

Darrel is our voice crafting expert.  He can change his voice about as fast as Don Rickles or Billy Crystal… (Even though he thinks he’s Tommy Smothers.)  It doesn’t hurt that his family was touring all across the Midwest doing Gospel concerts all before he was even a teenager.   No sir, it didn’t hurt at all. 

When he first heard The Beatles in 1964, he knew what he wanted to do and as well, the moment he first heard the Eagles, he knew the sound he wanted.  That’s all she wrote. That was it for him. The whole enchilada.

He has been involved in many musical efforts through the years (no name dropping), but none have been as fun as playing and singing the songs of the Eagles for Eagle fans!

We call him Scout Master as he’s an avid fisherman and explorer, but what truly makes him happy is the interaction with the fans….. Playing Eagles music comes from much love and respect for their songwriting...Truly..

Jimmy Williamson

In the words of Tom Petty, "The Drummer is The most important member of any group,” and Jimmy Williamson holds true to that thought right down to the bone. He’s as solid as a rock.

Jimmy Boy (as he's fondly been dubbed) studied the drums formally while growing up, and his father was a huge musical inspiration, surrounding him with people like Nat King Cole, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra and more!!

Working with acts like Toto, REO, Stevie Nicks, Robben Ford, Joe Sample and Lee Ritenour, he saw how it was done on the highest of levels, and now he finally gets to put all his knowledge into action on his own behalf, and of course, ... all while living the dream.

 

Richard Berglund

Born in a Northern California small town. Isolated on a ranch, his earliest musical influences came from an 8-track tape deck filled with rock music legends. Drawn to the bass playing and singing of Randy Meisner, the powerful music of The Eagles helped shape his musical core.

After attending college as a bass music major, he enlisted in the military as a bass guitarist, where he attended the military school of music. During his career, was able to travel and share his love of music. It was while serving, honing his skills he became enamored with the early bassists, mainly the ones that had influenced Randy Meisner. Recently, after completing my military career, he was given the opportunity to join The Boys of Summer. He feels that all the years of bass playing have finally paid off. This is a chance to pay tribute to The Eagles and help recreate one of the greatest Bands of all time. He looks forward to performing this great music with The Boys of Summer.

 

 

David A. Williams

As a seasoned pro, David A. not only brings years of guitar playing experience to BOS but also years of playing in tribute bands. David A. has been in tributes to Deep Purple (Deep In Purple), Bad Company (Badass Company) and most notably the Rolling Stones (Sticky Fingers/Hollywood Stones). He channels the look, spirit and vibe of the original artists, while breathing some fresh fire into the classic artists he is paying tribute to with the music. David A. is also an excellent driver.

He has shared the stage with Eric Burden, Billy Squier, Bernard Fowler and Slash.
