Montgomery County, Tennessee – Downtown Clarksville came to life Friday night as Barracuda America’s Heart Tribute took the stage at Downtown @ Sundown.
“Tonight we have the Heart tribute band, Barracuda. This is actually the third time they’ve tried to come out at the Downtown Commons. We’ve had a COVID year. We’ve had a rain. So that’s our third attempt to get Barracuda here,” said Elizabeth Quinton, Downtown Commons event planner. “They’re from Nashville and are super excited to be here.”
“I’m really delighted. I think a lot of people have been waiting years to hear them live in the Commons,” Quinton said.
Kicking off the party at 7:00 p.m. was Mary Todd. Todd’s music was an acoustic mix of Fleetwood Mac, Jo Dee Messina and Sheryl Crow. Todd has a beautiful voice and sound that has just won over audiences.
“It’s beautiful. I’ve never been here before. It’s a beautiful place. We have a great night for this. My show was so short. I’m like, I’m already done. But now, I going to enjoy the rest of the night,” Mary Todd said after her set.
“The crowd tonight was great. It’s already full and I think it’ll get even better when the next act starts and they hear more partying,” Todd said.
Barracuda America’s Heart Tribute then took the stage and kicked off. The sounds, the voices, the band, it was just amazing. I’ve seen other Heart Tribute bands but never anything like this.
The band consists of Shareen Ann King on vocals, Jennifer Janet on rhythm guitar, guitar and vocals, guitarist Chris Reynolds, Ronnie Kimball on bass and vocals, keyboardist Jeff Gibson and Mike Catone on drums.
Some of the Heart songs they played were Magic Man, Heartless, Dog & Butterfly, and What About Love. King’s voice on Crazy on You was just out of this world. Janet delivered a powerful and precise performance of All I Want To Do Is Make Love To You.
The band is just amazing. All professional artists. At one point during the gig, Reynolds and Janet got into a guitar battle that was just beautiful to listen to. Everyone was up for that one.
And of course, the night wouldn’t be complete without Baracuda. It was just amazing. Not a single person was seated at the end.
“It was a really good Heart Tribute band. The Commons were totally full. I think everyone who came out had a great time,” Quinton said.
The next series of Downtown @ Sundown concerts at the Downtown Commons will take place on Friday, July 1, 2022 with Absolute Queen. The concert starts at 7:00 p.m.
The Downtown Commons is located at 215 Legion Street.
