For over four decades, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, who were inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013, have created some of the most diverse music in rock and roll. Bad Animals, an international tribute act based in New York, recreates this incredible authentic Heart experience. This talented group, having received rave reviews, shared their story with the Wilson sisters. Ann told lead vocalist Daena D, “Have fun with it!” Following Ann’s advice, they are having a whole lotta fun playing Heart’s most memorable tunes.Since Heart has such a large catalog of well-known songs, Bad Animals decided to highlight Heart’s biggest hits into a few different show specialties. Their live production shows include a powerful headlining core performance, an 80’s and a 70’s review featuring specific hits from each decade with inspired (by Ann and Nancy) period clothing.Don’t miss your chance to see Bad Animals LIVE !
