Music in the Mountains

There was music in the mountains this Labor Day weekend as the Big Bear Discovery Center concluded their 12th annual summer concert series with two of southern California’s premier tribute bands.

The Long Run, a tribute to The Eagles, played their greatest hits from 1971-1975. The crowd enjoyed such favorites as Lyin’ Eyes, Desperado, and Peaceful Easy Feeling. What would an Eagles performance be without their classic Hotel California? The Long Run did not disappoint!

Up next was the Led Zeppelin tribute band, Led Zepagain. Their rendition of the Led Zeppelin IV album was flawless and had the crowd of over 900 on their feet dancing and singing along. Zepagain added their special guest performer, Tuzy Ellis, to sing on the haunting acoustic versions of Going to California and Battle of Evermore. Unforgettable!

The Southern California Mountains Foundation helps support the Big Bear Discovery Center through their summer concert series. The Foundation has over 700 volunteers who help raise money to support their mission of conservation and environmental education. The center highlights the beautiful nature of Big Bear, is family and pet friendly, and free to the public.
