Heartsfield has toured the United States in each decade since the 1970s, having performed before nearly 10,000,000 fans at 4,500 shows at colleges and universities, fairs and festivals, clubs and bars, private parties, stadiums, and in the streets. Having released their 12th album, they have sold millions of records and continue to please audiences with their brand of vocal rock music that has its foundations in southern and country rock.


This video is of Heartsfield recently performing at various venues:




Having been signed by Mercury Records and later, Columbia Records, Heartsfield has produced numerous FM radio favorites and Billboard charted records. Among them are “Music Eyes, ”Shine On,” “The Only Time I’m Sober Is When You’re Gone,” “I’m Comin’ Home,” and “Racin’ the Sun.”

At any performance, Heartsfield shows are full of fun, up-tempo, foot-stompin’ music that gets the crowd involved, singin’ and dancin’ away. The band delivers on its promise of hot pickin’, strong vocals, driving rhythm, and smiles from the stage, which have allowed them to last over three decades and still continue to please audiences with their growing catalogue of hits.

The Venue in Aurora, 21 S. Broadway Ave. (US Rte 25), Aurora, IL

Finally!! Heartsfield will be performing live at The Venue in Aurora, Illinois on Saturday, August 29th at 9 PM. Doors are at 8 PM.

We had deferred this performance due to the pandemic a couple of times but here is what is going to happen.

We go on at 9 PM and will perform 2 good sets and I bet you all would like an encore. Due to social distancing and since the limited reserved seat tickets have been on sale for a while, they are sold out.

But, there are two more opportunities to enjoy the performance. First, since the weather for Saturday is looking really good, The Venue will be raising the garage door and selling general admission seats in Mundy Park. Sound will be brought out, there will be projected video, and an outdoor bar will be available (as well as the bar inside).

The weather is looking really nice and you Heartsfield fans who do come out for the show, bring your masks and follow appropriate social distancing and other safety measures. If you attend with General Admission tickets, also bring a chair so you are comfortable

Tickets can be purchased at The Venue or on line. The link is below:


Secondly, this show will be streamed live on the Internet. On August 29th, go to either of the following two links: https://www.facebook.com/thevenueaurora
