Kelly King has joined Heartbreaker – America’s Tribute to Pat Benatar as their new drummer.

Bio – Drummer Kelly King has performed with such diverse artists as Rihanna, Dwight Yoakam, Sheryl Crow, Macy Gray, and many more.

He stipulates that touring the world and performing at famed venues like Red Rocks, LA’s Greek Theater, and others has instilled within him an eternal respect for the music artists who came before him. While he’s well versed in a variety of musical genres, he confirms that Rock & Roll is where he feels most at ease and most inspired.

“There’s only two kinds of music; good and bad.” he notes. It’s obvious from watching him perform that the music of Pat Benatar and her acclaimed band has left a powerful impression on Kelly; one which he uses to propel Heartbreaker- America’s Tribute to Pat Benatar to thrilling heights.

“I am thrilled to join Heartbreaker – America’s Tribute to Pat Benatar and the fantastic musicians in the band. It gives me a chance to pay homage to one of rock & roll’s most charismatic and talented drummers, Myron Grombacher.” say’s King.

“I had the opportunity to play with Kelly twice before asking him to join. Kelly is the consummate professional with the ability to cop Myron’s feel and energy as well as the dedication needed to help us reach the top level of professionalism for a Tribute Band. With more and more dates coming, we needed a drummer that could fulfill those obligations and Kelly is that man.” – David Lowry.

Heartbreaker – America’s Tribute to Pat Benatar is moving full steam ahead with booking dates and unfortunately, we knew that Jamie Smith wouldn’t be able to do them all with his career, family and his side business. Jamie is a fabulous drummer and even better human being, but he won’t be far. He will be filling in from time to time when necessary. He is and always will be part of the Heartbreaker family. We are so grateful for the time he has put into this project and the love he shown towards it.

Kelly’s first show with the band will be on March 2nd at the Granada Theatre with Barracuda – America’s Heart Tribute.

Heartbreaker – America’s Tribute to Pat Benatar Welcomes New Member Tracey DiCicco!

Heartbreaker – America’s Tribute to Pat Benatar is proud and excited to announce Tracey DiCicco as our newest member!

Tracey will be joining us on background vocals and absolutely kills it, and is the consummate professional.

Welcome to the band Tracey! We are happy to have you with us!

Born and raised in a suburb about 30 minutes west of Detroit From the time She could walk she was entertaining family and friends. I guess you could say her family needed a young age she was going to be the Entertainer in the family. Following her passion she joined choirs and Junior High in high school but I wasn’t until after high school that Tracey started to really pursue her music. Wasn’t glamorous at first with karaoke competitions but winning most of them and realizing she could probably make a living doing it that led to her being called to her first band audition. Getting the opportunity to play with this established band opened up many doors for her. They were very sought after and opened up for various artists that would come in town. She also did a large singing competition for the city of Detroit and their 4th of July fireworks celebration that was televised on a local network. Then she started working at one of the largest country venues in the area. Enjoying this so much and knowing how many opportunities came her way she decided to spread her wings and make the move to Nashville, Tennessee. After getting her footing in this city she started doing writer’s nights and working with Incredible musicians and doing some studio work. During this time she was also asked to be a part of one brand entertainment out of Las Vegas, Nevada. It was a good opportunity and she was able to interview one of the biggest names in rock and roll Jonathan Cain from Journey. How do you top that? Then she has been a part of so many musical projects and even had a lead in a play that featured some of her music and she’s never acted before. She loves being a part of anything music and strives to be a sought after artist for her incredible stage presence and vocal ability.
