The Ultimate Heart Tribute Band

Created in late 2003, DOG ‘N’ BUTTERFLY is a 5 piece band of accomplished musicians dedicated to bringing their talent and love of Heart’s memorable music of the 70’s and 80’s to the stage with unequaled accuracy and musical skill. Complete with stage show & retro- inspired costumes, Dog ‘N’ Butterfly takes the concept of “Tribute” to a whole new level! Fronting the band is vocalist Lizann Warner whose portrayal of Ann Wilson is both eerie and un-paralleled. Her un-canny Ann-like voice has not only earned her praise from the actual members of Heart, but also landed her several tracks on video games including the popular Activision game: Guitar Hero III, singing Heart’s hit “Barracuda”, as well as “Magic Man” on Konami’s Game: Rock Revolution.  Lizann’s credits also include TV ad jingles like the current commercial for Sandals Resorts [“My Blue Heaven”], airing on all major networks including: CNN, FOX NEWS & CSNBC. Lizann is joined on stage by Desha (pronounced “De-shay”) Dunnahoe a music major from Cal State University of Long Beach who is not only a multi-instrumentalist who plays both electric and acoustic guitars fluently, but is also a gifted composer and orchestrator who teaches young music students for the city of Long Beach’s unified school district. Lizann and Desha are joined by a power-house line up of stellar musicians who create the look and sound so closely to the band HEART, that even Hearts founding members Ann & Nancy Wilson and Roger fisher have praised them for their authenticity. 

As the ultimate Heart tribute, DOG ‘N’ BUTTERFLY has performed on stages through the U.S. for over a decade. They have performed on stage with Heart’s original members; Roger Fisher and Steve Fossen, they’ve performed LIVE in studio on the KTLA Morning news, and recently Dog N Butterfly received the prestigious honor of performing on AXS TV’s popular show; WORLD’S GREATEST TRIBUTE BANDS!!! (Something not many tribute bands can brag about!) And even world-famous rock jock “Uncle” Joe Benson from KLOS has said that Dog ‘N’ Butterfly is one of the best tribute bands he’s ever seen!

Dog ‘N’ Butterfly performs all the 70’s hits loved by die-hard Heart fans worldwide as well as the chart-toppers that brought Heart back into the lime light in the 80’s. The members of Dog ‘N’ Butterfly painstakingly recreate every harmony & nuance of Heart’s memorable music down to the last detail. This coupled with their dynamic stage show & retro-inspired costumes makes them a virtual tour-de-force of talent and dedication, providing fans with exactly what they promise…



Your recreation of music, photo sets, and style are amazing. What a truly dedicated tribute band. Proud that we influenced you in such an intense way.  We are truly honored, humbled and proud!!!

Ann & Nancy Wilson


It’s heartwarming to see the amount of effort you all have put into creating accurate, inspired remakes of magical music… I feel honored to be a part of a band that could inspire such a deep-felt delivery and honest reproduction… I thought that was me playing for a minute.
