BOLLING AFB, D.C. -- Country music legend Restless Heart headlines the season opener of the U. S. Air Force Band's 2008 Guest Artist Series Feb. 10 at Daughters of the American Revolution Constitution Hall in Washington.
Restless Heart parted ways for what they thought was the last time in 1994. They were leaving behind a true musical legacy, a decade of fulfilled dreams most aspiring artists barely dare to hope for, a blazing trail of hit songs that any band would die for, and a crown as one of country music's most elite group. No other band so consistently turned out a string of hits so instantly identifiable -- the intertwining vocal blend led by Larry Stewart, the deftly sweeping keyboards of David Innis and the masterful guitar of Greg Jennings, all backed by the steady rhythm section of drummer John Dittrich and Paul Gregg on bass.
Today, driven by the musical force that brought them together 20 years ago, and with the release of their latest album, Still Restless, they continue to lead the pack by choosing songs of conviction and maturity, and recording them with innovative creativity.
The concert begins at 3 p.m. and is free and open to the public; no tickets are required. Doors open at 2 p.m. the day of the concert. DAR Constitution Hall is located at 1776 D Street NW in Washington, D.C. Mary Therese Tebbe, broadcaster and journalist, is the guest emcee.
