One of the most powerful and cutting edge female fronted rock acts of the 70's and 80's was the band HEART. Ann and Nancy Wilson set the standard for future female artists, opening the door for women to be a part of a predominately male run music business, and creating some of the greatest and most recognized songs in music history.

Recreating the passion and power of an institution like HEART isnít an easy task for a tribute band, which probably explains why there are very few Heart tributes currently working in the United States. The Bad Animals are one of the select few that capture the raw energy of a live HEART concert, and are returning to Moondance Jam's 20th Anniversary celebration for their 5th straight year.

Hailing from Minnesota, The Bad Animals are made up of 6 of the most accomplished and recognized musicians from the region: Lisa Ebbers on lead Vocals, Wendy Miller on Vocals and Guitar, Tim Davis on drums, Lewis Sego on Keyboards, Aaron Carlson on Bass & Vocals, and Leni DiMancari on Guitar & Vocals.

Taking on the task of recreating a band like HEART takes incredible musicianship, and the members of the Bad Animals have previously laid down their own history on the Minnesota music circuit.

In concert, the band is incredible, with Lisa covering the power of Ann Wilson and Wendy capturing the subtle and softer side of Nancy Wilson, creating breathtaking harmonies.

Their show spans 3 Decades of Multi platinum HEART Music, performing their Chart Topping Singles, Rock Classics and Arena Rock Power Ballads. The Bad Animals have been dubbed one of the hottest Tribute bands on the circuit, and give an energetic performance capturing the Power & Energy of HEART.

The Bad Animals were nominated for MMA Awards by the MN Music Academy for Best Tribute Band & Best Cover Band in 2006, and have been performing the music of Heart for 7 Tours.
