Comprised of all Hart descendants, the band features a mother, stepfather, daughter, a nephew, and a very close family friend. Playing venues such as The Perry Farm, festivals such as the Bourbonnais Friendship Festival, St Anne Pumpkin Festival, weddings, clubs, many local bars and private events, King of Harts brings you top 40’s Billboard ... hits from the 1940’s to today featuring such artists as: Miranda Lambert, The Doobie Brothers, The Rolling Stones, Rascal Flatts, Pat Benatar, Stevie Ray Vaughn, The Platters, Cheap Trick, The Beatles, Heart, Smokey Robinson, and many more. Consistently adding new tunes to their repertoire, King of Harts enjoys learning new music suggested by fans.
“What makes us so unique is that, first of all we’re all family. Second, we all have such a love for music and are all so open to possibility that the only place for us to go is up.” Lead singer Brianna Gifford feels that their strong family bond and their hearts, both very evident on stage, is what keep the fans coming back for more. “Of course, it doesn't hurt that we’re pretty good at what we do.” Their constant joking nature and laid back demeanor are definitely qualities that add to the “must see band”.
Additional Booking Notes

For small venues we can provide our own PA sound equipment and tech which will be reflected in our fee unless otherwise requested.
Influences & Inspiration
Deja Vou Band has been a true motivation. They have performed covers for many years while we followed them around Chicago. Seeing their diverse talents got us thinking about all the talent our family possessed. Our inspiration was fired by our family's musical background in our upbringing. Their continuous support during the lesson years as well as beginning bands has really paid off.
If you choose this option to provide PA equipment and tech we would need the following: 5 vocal mics, guitar amp mic, bass amp direct connection, keyboard direct connection, minimum 4 drum mics, and 4 stage monitors with adequate room amplification.
Smaller performance area will allow negotiation on PA equipment requirements.
We do R&B, Blues, Soft Rock, Soul, Motown, Jazz, and Funk as well.
