2021 Biographies


Welcome to the Biographies page of The Long Run.

The Long Run, "Colorado's Tribute to The Eagles," hails from the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Northern Colorado. Born in 2009, the band
immediately hit the road doing fairs and festivals all over the Four Corners region of the southwestern U.S., as well as many others. The band now has five
of the busiest musicians on the Front Range, including two longtime members of the Colorado-based classic rock band, 'Firefall.'

In April, 2019, they celebrated their 10-year anniversary by hosting a successful concert at the famous Paramount Theatre in downtown Denver, only to be followed by an appearance at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO, that same summer.

The Long Run continues more than a decade later, faithfully re-creating the 70s sound of America's best selling rock band in history. They hope to perform
in many parts of the country they've never been to before, including your area, as the years go on.

Below are brief musical biographies of the members of The Long Run, "Colorado's Tribute to The Eagles."
