Thomas Cavanagh performs regularly as a solo acoustic artist playing anything from Irish music to his original acoustic pop material and everything in between. Cavanagh often performs material from his over a dozen solo acoustic albums which range from country to pop to folk to a more traditional singer songwriter story teller format.
His first acoustic album "Only Child" was released in 1999 and sold huge volumes and received incredible praise. He followed up in 2003 with an album called "Tradition" which was very much in a country folk style heavily influenced by Johnny Cash. In 2004 Cavanagh released "The Pisces Rock Opera" which was a comedy oriented album rock opera. 2006 brought two new Cavanagh albums, "What's Funny to Some" and "February". These records are so very different from each other but were released the same month. What's Funny to Some is a humorous and very sarcastic satirical record that many Cavanagh fans feel is his most brilliant. February is likely however the biggest fan favorite and mixes country and folk and rock and dances between Jackson Browne, Johnny Cash and modern folk. In 2006 Cavanagh released "Cavanagh Sings Cash" and two live acoustic albums. In 2009 Cavanagh released "Bent Acousticat" which was acoustic versions of the Bent Pussycat songs. 2011 saw the released of an album simply titled "Acoustic"which is half Dylanesque folk and half acoustic modern pop. This album was the first in years to be followed up with a dedicated acoustic tour and was enormously successful review wise and sales oriented. Through the years there was also an acoustic Beatles cover record made and a tribute to John Lennon as well as 3 Irish records which contained some original songs by Cavanagh and many traditional Irish songs. Cavanagh also has several Christmas Albums out containing originals and traditional favorites as well. We encourage you to seek these out and pick them up. You will greatly enjoy them all!
In 2013 Cavanagh released "63-64" which so far has been his most critically acclaimed and highly praised album ever. It was recorded on an old eight track using vintage gear and sounds like it was released in 1963 not 2013. The album is all original and you can check THE 63-64 Band page for more details.
2014 will see the release of several acoustic records including another folk album and an acoustic blues record in the style of the 1920s and 30's blues masters.

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 !
