Their styles and experiences combined make them the hot act they are and enable them to present versatile arrangements of old classics, through to the contemporary music of today.
Dan Knight is a rockin’ guitarist providing lead vocals to the band. Dan has been running a family business which has given him the time to write and produce the quality material that he is used to creating. In 1987 he had a release with the song “She Lives In a Big House”. Although most of Dan’s accomplishments have been on his own, he spent nearly three years with music artist Joe Firth where he performed at some of Canada’s finest rodeos (Ponoka Stampede, Calgary Stampede, and Klondike Days) and has opened for the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
Tony Bandoni is fret board rippin’ lead guitarist. Being one of Canada’s hottest lead players, Tony has been nominated as Canada’s instrumentalist of the year on three separate occasions. His portfolio includes Michelle Wright and Ronnie Fray.
Shawn Tasker is the youngest member of the band whose abilities shine as an enthusiastic drummer and vocalist. He has previously played with blues artist: Robin Banks, and country artists: Lorie Scott and Marshall Law as well as The Terry Ashley Band.
Ken Mungar is a groovin’ bass player with strong lead vocals. Ken has played with bands like the Rodriguez Twins, Charlie Clements, Dusty Wayne, The Concrete Cowboys and now Rebel Heart.
Along with their good humor and enthusiasm, both on and off stage, Rebel Heart performs up-tempo, toe-tapping music along with emotionally charged ballads, leaving audiences feeling fully entertained.
