Created in 2003, DOG N BUTTERFLY is dedicated to bringing their talent and love of Heart's memorable music of the 70's & 80's to the stage with unequaled accuracy and musical skill. Their dynamic stage show & retro- inspired costumes, take the concept of "Tribute" to a whole new level! Lead vocalist Lizann Warner's portrayal of Ann Wilson is both eerie and unparalleled. Her voice sounds so much like Ann Wilson, that she was hired by both Activision & Konami to sing sound-a-like recordings of Heart's most recognizable hits "Barracuda" and "Magic Man" for multiple video games including the top-selling game Guitar Hero 3. Her voice can additionally be heard on TV commercial jingles for Sandals Resorts, Flip Out footwear and others.
The part of Nancy Wilson is performed by Desha (pronounced "De-shay") Dunnahoe. A talented music major from Cal State University of Long Beach, Desha demonstrates her skills as a multi-instrumentalist by performing effortlessly on both electric and acoustic guitars as well as the mandolin. A gifted composer and orchestrator as well, Desha teaches young music students for the city of Long Beach's unified school district. Backed by a power-house line up of stellar musicians, DOG N BUTTERFLY re-creates the look and sound of HEART so closely, that even Heart's founding members Ann & Nancy Wilson have praised them for their authenticity...
"Your recreation of music, photo sets, and style are amazing."
"What a truly dedicated tribute band. Proud that we influenced you in such an intense way.
We are truly honored, humbled and proud!!!"
- Ann & Nancy Wilson of HEART
