Ben Smith - Heart Concert 2016We started a Heart record in January which is almost mixed and finished.

We did it in LA with great studios and engineers, some fun takes on deep Heart cuts and some new songs too!

After several other shows in January and February, Heart took a lively and fun trip in March, 2016 through Canada ending on March 22nd, gigging with Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and The Mandevilles.

We started with Abbotsford, BC on the 7th of March, then rocked em in Vancouver, Prince George, Dawson Creek, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto and Montreal. I  really appreciated the fellowship of the musicians, our fantastic crew, drivers and our trustworthy production folks.

It was a warm winter all around in the northland, we felt lucky to have missed almost all of the snowy and icy roads.  The venues were full, the local crews and catering were kind and the Paul Merck Productions guys (Peter Grant and Brent Donnelly) got us thru and then fed us at Rodney’s in Toronto.  Bless them!
