Brad Torchin: Lead guitar, vocals, mandolin

Brad grew up in a musical family and started strumming guitar when he was only 8 years old. He played for years in the Southern California club scene, while studying music composition, along with software engineering at UCSD. After many years of playing Rock, Blues and Jazz throughout the southwest - in popular bands such as Patsy Pink and Notice to Appear, he joined a national Fleetwood Mac Tribute (Fleetwood Nicks) as the challenging part of Lindsey Buckingham. Brad has always admired the incredible talent of Roger Fisher of Heart --as well as Howard Leese--and decided he was ready for an even bigger challenge--to play guitar & keys for Heart Alive. Brad eventually handed the keyboard role to Todd Rogers (also keyboardist in Fleetwood Nicks) in order to concentrate more on guitar & mandolin. 

"I've been a Heart fan since I first heard Dreamboat Annie in 1976, and after playing their music off and on through the decades--to be really able to focus on their music with this wonderful group of musicians has been extremely rewarding."

Dave Davis: Lead guitar, vocals

Originally from the small town of Clay in central West Virginia, David was exposed to music at a very young age. He began playing drums and percussion at age 11 and first began playing guitar seriously at age 14 under the influence of such bands as Stone Temple Pilots, Van Halen, and Metallica. Throughout his high school and college years, there were rarely times that he was not involved in some sort of musical project. With his former band, Satchel Brown, from Morgantown, WV, David recorded one album, but his passion has always been performing live on stage.  After receiving his law degree from West Virginia University, David moved to Las Vegas in November 2007. After doing several auditions with other groups, he was finally offered the drummer position with local Fleetwood Mac tribute group, Fleetwood Nicks. However, when approached to help form Heart Alive and play guitar, it was too good to pass. He now splits his time between both bands.
"Primarily knowledgeable of Heart's music from the 1980's, having the opportunity to really explore their entire catalog in order to be part of this band has been a great experience for me and will result in my growth as a musician."

Danny Buss: Bass guitar, percussion

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 Fleetwood Mac Tribute "Fleetwood Nicks". Danny was the obvious choice to be Heart Alive's bassist, not only because he knows this music inside and out, but because he will kill us if we are not the very best.(ha)

"Heart Alive is a machine that won't quit--we get up there and we do our job that we happen to all really enjoy--and we do it so that everyone in the room can feel that energy."

Aaron Olson: Drums, percussion

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 h is rock-solid talent to Heart Alive in 2012, his first show at Feather Falls Casino-the very same stage Heart themselves has performed on.  We welcome Aaron to Heart Alive, and are very honored to have such a talented drummer on board! ​

"It's been a thrilling experience to be surrounded by such wonderful people and great musicians. The music of Heart struck a chord with me early on and influenced my drumming with songs like "Barracuda" and "Magic Man". It's not easy to pull these songs off, but this band makes it happen."
