Two New Fans in a Heart-Tribute Band
Wed., Jan. 11. 2012 10:15am EST
We just found out that two of our newest fans are in a Nashville-based tribute band dedicated to the music of the 70's and 80's female-fronted rock band Heart. What's more, their band is the only one actually authorized by Heart.
Shonna Harrison sings lead and her husband, Sean, plays bass, for the band Little Queen. A classically trained singer, Shonna also performs with the Nashville Opera Company, where she's been since 2001. Sean has played in numerous acts (Including the Pink Floyd tribute Eclipse) and performs in Nashville both as a studio musician and with various live acts.
Here are some excerpts from our email conversations with Shonna:
I wanted to let you know that I received the package Saturday with the two CDs. I know my family will enjoy them. My husband and I already got a big kick just from the covers. My husband now says he wants to be in your band. :-)We've had a chance to view a video medley of Little Queen in concert, and they are quite impressive. To see and hear it for yourself and to get more information on the Heart-touching adventures of Shonna and Sean, check out the band's website is http://www.littlequeenrocks.com.
We are also musicians. My husband and I have a Heart tribute band based here in Nashville. The group started as a group of music friends from our church getting together to work up some 80s songs for a marriage event at the church a few years ago. We had the opportunity to headline Disney's Sounds Like Summer concert series at Epcot for a week last summer. We all love the 80's music.
We'd love to see you guys if you ever make it to the Nashville area. If you have a mailing list for concerts, please put me on it. Best wishes to you all this year for the success of your new CD.
Pardon the pun, but the folks in Little Queen really know all their songs by Heart! :) And considering the fact that one of Heart's biggest songs was a #4 hit called "Never" in 1985, you could feasibly say that they would never say "Never say 'never.'" Sorry, we didn't mean to go crazy on you; we're just trying to tell it like it is.
