About the Band

BARRACUDA hails from Vancouver, BC, Canada, the city where Ann & Nancy Wilson originally formed the amazing legacy of the band HEART. Barracuda performs the music of HEART with style, presence, and a true passion for the songs that have become beloved classics to fans worldwide.

Roger Fisher, Guitarist and founding member of HEART has officially endorsed Barracuda. Roger has also joined the band on stage for numerous performances, creating a truly authentic experience for HEART fans. The group is led by D.L. Car, (Almost Ann), a four-octave vocal powerhouse and dedicated Ann Wilson purest. Donna’s talents also extend to the flute and the guitar, fully authenticating the Ann Wilson persona.

D.L. is supported by the multi-talented Layla Vaugeois, (Fancy Nancy) who brings her love for the music of HEART to life with her guitars, mandolin, and vocals, and is also of remarkable resemblance to the beautiful and charismatic Nancy Wilson!

D.L. and Layla have an electric chemistry on stage and are both fully dedicated to recreating the experience that is HEART.

Backing the ladies are 3 professionally seasoned musicians dedicated to providing an authentic musical experience heard in the subtle nuances and rock solid delivery of their performances. But this is more than just a band playing Heart’s music; it’s a tribute to Heart’s history, writing, arranging, and musicianship. Barracuda covers music from Heart’s first album “Dreamboat Annie”, released in March of 1976, which included hits such as “Crazy on You” and “Magic Man”, to “Brigade” released in March of 1990, which included hits “All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You”, and “Stranded”, and just about everything in between.

Barracuda is the most accurate representation of Heart to date…delighting audiences from coast to coast in North America with what is the Essential Tribute to one of the best rock bands of our time.
