Tribute band to perform music of Heart
For Hub City Times
SPENCER – Few tribute bands have a connection to the group they honor. As the original rhythm section for the American rock band Heart, bassist Steve Fossen and drummer Michael Derosier are the powerful driving engine behind the band’s classic hits like Barracuda, Straight On, Crazy on You, Magic Man, and Dog & Butterfly. Their incredible career with Heart established them in the archives of rock history, further proven by their 2013 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Driven to recreate the songs of this classic band, Fossen and Derosier are back together with Heart By Heart, a group dedicated to performing this legendary music in the most genuine way possible and they’re coming to Spencer’s LuCille Tack Center for the Arts on Feb. 13 at 7 pm.
Fossen and Derosier surrounded themselves with musicians who “shared their philosophy for excellence.” Lead vocalist Somar Macek delivers a “jaw dropping performance” with her vocal range and stage presence. Multi-talented guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Lizzy Daymont nearly brought Fossen to tears when he heard her and Macek harmonize for the first time. Though not sisters, they sang together as if they were. A 35-year veteran touring guitarist, Chad Quist, completes the band.
