TUOLUMNE – Country favorite Restless Heart will be coming to Black Oak Casino on April 11.

The band has had six Number One hits, 26 singles on the Billboard country charts, and four gold albums. Their hit songs include “I’ll Still Be Loving You,” “Why Does It Have to Be (Wrong or Right),” and “A Tender Lie.”

On April 19, nationally known comedian Mark Pitta will take the stage. Pitta has appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, and has made guest appearances on Mad About You and Third Rock From the Sun.

Other highlights include American Blues guitar star Jimmy Thackery who released his latest album last year and on April 21, Steel Breeze, who is known for their hit song “You Don’t Want Me Anymore.”

Restless Heart is celebrating their Silver Anniversary – 25 years of perfecting the art of entertaining.

Restless Heart came together in late 1983 as the by-product of a project by famed writer/producer Tim Dubois. He was looking for exceptionally talented studio musicians to record demos of songs he had written. The lustrous voices of that “demo band” rose quickly to the surface and Restless Heart signed a recording contract with RCA in 1985.

With the release of their first album that year, the vocal style of Restless Heart became instantly identifiable – an intertwining five part harmony led by Larry Stewart, with Dave Innis, Greg Jennings, Paul Gregg, and John Dittrich. They brought a new, contemporary sound to Nashville, a sound with a touch of pop – the sound which so strongly influences the popular country acts of today.
