Kick It Out With Heart By Heart in IGC 2020 Concert!
Wednesday’s Party Starts 5 p.m., Free Concert 5:45 – 7 p.m. Continuing in the tradition of IGC Show’s over a decade of classic rock concerts exclusively for IGC attendees and exhibitors – all as a free bonus just for attending – this year we bring you the sweet rocking sounds of Heart - one of classic rock’s most successful and revered bands. In 2013 bassist Steve Fossen and drummer Michael Derosier were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as original members of Heart. That 1970s lineup brought to the world the massive radio hits “Magic Man,” “Crazy On You,” “Dreamboat Annie,” “Barracuda,” “Kick It Out,” “Heartless,” “Straight On,” “Dog & Butterfly,” “Even It Up” and much more. Now Fossen and Derosier are back together with Heart By Heart, a new band featuring powerhouse vocalist Somar Macek. Honoring the magic and power of the music of Heart, this incredible lineup considers it their responsibility to bring the songs to the stage in their original form. Heart was first formed by Steve Fossen himself, in 1969 after a series of different names and personnel changes, key among them being the addition of Ann Wilson in 1972 followed by sister Nancy in 1974. Heart went on to release six top-10 albums and landed 20 hit singles on the Billboard top 40 chart. Fossen and Derosier left Heart in 1982 following the recording of “Private Audition” and were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the rest of the classic Heart lineup in 2013. “That was an amazing night,” Fossen said of Heart’s induction. “I had a conversation with Ann and it was good to reminisce a little bit. We have such high regard for our rock and roll heroes that it was a little surreal when we joined them in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. There’s a part of you that says ‘You’re not worthy’ but then you remember how big Heart was - and still is - such a big part of classic rock, that it was a no-brainer for us to be in there.” Beginning with 1975’s “Crazy on You” from Heart’s debut album “Dreamboat Annie,” the music of Heart has always had a home on the radio, a fact for which Fossen says he is grateful. “I’m very appreciative of classic rock and classic hits radio for keeping our music alive for so many years,” he said. “It’s really cool to listen to the radio and hear a Pink Floyd song followed by a Led Zeppelin song and The Beatles and then a song by Heart will come on. It’s just a great feeling. I sit there and think ‘How did that ever happen?’” Heart By Heart presents a powerful, dynamic show that includes all the favorite Heart as well as deep album cuts that Heart fans will love. “We take the music very seriously,” said Fossen. “Ann and Nancy Wilson are rock’s premiere sisters, and with Heart By Heart, we respect and honor that music we made together. Our mission is to perform the classic Heart music as faithfully as we can,” Fossen says. Aside from regular repeat appearances around their Pacific Northwest home base, Heart By Heart has been touring the US since 2014, taking their show on the road to Performing Arts Centers, indoor and outdoor theaters, casinos, fairs and festivals. Fossen says that one of the most rewarding aspects of Heart By Heart is meeting with fans, who are encouraged to bring Heart memorabilia to shows for the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers to sign afterwards. “We have people coming up to us after shows with tears in their eyes,” he said. “They thank us for bringing back memories of those days. Somar and I started singing these songs out a pure love for the material, and now that we’ve branched out and are touring around the country, it’s really rewarding to talk to fans and hear their stories and memories.” Wednesday, August 12, Party Starts at 5 p.m., Free Concert 5:45 - 7 p.m., IGC Show Center Stage
