Former US Senator and US Ambassador Scott Brown Will Open For Dark Desert Eagles at Indian Ranch in July

Scott Brown and the Diplomats will perform at the July 17th concert.

Former US Senator and United States Ambassador Scott Brown brings his band Scott Brown and the Diplomats to Indian Ranch this summer. The group will open for Dark Desert Eagles on July 17th as part of the Mike's Hard Lemonade Summer Concert Series at Indian Ranch. Tickets are on sale now.

Scott Brown and the Diplomats is an offshoot of a band formed in New Zealand and recently headed by former US Senator and former US Ambassador Scott Brown. The last event by the band was in Wellington New Zealand in front of 15,000 fans at Beervanna at Sky Stadium. Playing together for almost 4 years, the band compiled an impressive list of venues and paid appearances. Upon returning from duty in New Zealand, Brown sought out some of the most talented area musicians to reform the band into Scott Brown and the Diplomats. This talented, rockin' group of musicians have played with some of New England's best talent and bands. Their great selection of hits that people have grown up with and enjoyed listening and dancing to is legendary in New Zealand and will be the same in the USA.

With 5 #1 singles, 5 Grammy Awards, 5 American Music Awards and 6 #1 albums, The Eagles are one of the best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 150 million records. Their "Greatest Hits" is the best selling album of the 20th century. Touched by the passing of Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey, Pat Badger (founding member of the multi-platinum rock act Extreme) formed the Dark Desert Eagles in tribute.

As part of Extreme, Badger has sold 10 million records, including the smash hit "More Than Words," and toured the globe. Wanting only the best for this project, he enlisted Dana Spellman on drums, multi-instrumentalist Chris Lester, soaring guitar hero Joe Pessia from the band Steelheart, and Tom Appleman, a Berklee College of Music Professor. Together, they formed the Dark Desert Eagles to stunningly re-create the amazing musicianship, soaring vocal harmonies and timeless repertoire of The Eagles.
