Tom Cavanagh and the Motor Parkway Blues Band was born in January 2011 when a few friends got together for a jam session at Tom's Studio. The idea to do a blues album has been in Cavanagh's head for years and in in the summer of 2010 he recorded a few acoustic blues tunes but desired to recreate the vibe of the early blues records by Elmore James, BB KIng, Freddie King and the 60's british blues invasion. 
The band consists of Tom Cavanagh on guitar and vocals, Niles Hughes on Drums, Kenny Kearney on bass and Johnny Fallon on organ and keys.

In 2011 the band released the album Ain't no good can come from me. The record sold very well and even won a few awards. The band plays every so often when their schedules can link up. Plans for a new album in 2014 are currently in the works.

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 !
