Dave Davis

Drums, Percussion

DaveBio2.jpg

Dave began playing drums at age 11 while living in Clay, West Virginia. He then took up guitar at age 14 and was in a few local bands at a very early age. Dave moved to Morgantown WV where he attended college where he received his BA, MA and JD in law school. He performed in the popular band Satchel Brown where he played lead guitar and shared lead vocals. Dave also played bass for 1.5 years in another local group. Satchel Brown recorded their first album in 2006, before Dave planned to head west for Las Vegas late 2007. Dave joined the band just days before their Lake Las Vegas gig July 2008. Dave's flawless performance that night proved he is an incredible talent that we are honored to share the stage with! Dave also plays the role of Roger Fisher in "Heart Alive", a tribute to Heart, and most recently the part of Barry Gibb in the well known Australian Bee Gees show in Las Vegas!

Danny Buss

Bass Guitar

337816_2202909325616_1337062256_o.jpg

Danny grew up in the heart of Chicago's music scene playing drums, guitar and bass. His passion for bass was noticed by a band opening on tour for Deep Purple. Danny's life on the road with this legendary band gave him not only the experience of performing in front of stadium audiences, but the drive to do his own original material. Danny began writing his own music in Chicago, while playing in a Heart/Fleetwood Mac tribute opening for acts such as Cheap Trick, Grand Funk and many more.
Since relocating to Las Vegas, Danny has played in several different national tributes including "Unauthorized Ozzy", where Brad Gillis has joined them on stage, as well as the national Heart Tribute "Heart Alive". Danny was the obvious choice to be bassist for both shows, not only because he knows this music inside and out, but because he will kill us if we are not the very best.(ha)

Aaron Olson

Rhythm Guitar

Aaron was born just outside of Fresno, CA, but grew up and spent most of his life in Las Vegas.  He started playing drums at the tender age of ten, and was touring professionally by the age of 19.  In addition to playing drums, he plays guitar and bass, and is an accomplished song writer.  He won several  contests with notable radio airplay and has sold jingles to national companies.  He has played in many professional bands with extensive experience in the casino and corporate circuits, most notably "The Fab"...one of the most recognized Beatles Tributes in the country, that has a regular show every week in Las Vegas.  Aaron started contributing his rock-solid talent to the band's tribute to Heart  "Heart Alive"in 2012 - his first show being Feather Falls Casino Showroom-a venue that Heart themselves has played. That same year the band asked Aaron to play rhythm guitar in Fleetwood Nicks so that Heart Alive & Fleetwood Nicks could be all the same band members performing both shows.
