White Winged Dove is a unique Stevie Nicks & Fleetwood Mac tribute band. While there are number of SN/Mac tributes in the World, we know that when you go see a Stevie or Mac tribute there are a few "essentials" to making your concert experience "epic". Stevie is known for her classy and stylish finery, her truly unique voice, & her beautiful and haunting melodies. Fleetwood Mac is known for awesome songs you can "sing" with, that bring back a flood of memories, and that undeniable chemistry between all the members that you can tell these people are TRULY real FRIENDS. (or in the case of the real Mac, sometimes a lot more!) You don't expect to go see a Nicks/Mac tribute and see & hear anything less than AUTHENTIC capture & presentation of these things! There is a true difference in tributes that are sincere and long time fans of the artist they are portraying, and those who are just "playing a part" ... and it SHOWS. Both in look and sound. We ARE those fans. Come see the difference that makes! :) "Play the way you feel it" is truly the only way to pay these amazing musicians a legendary tribute. There is, and will only ever BE, one Stevie Nicks and one Fleetwood Mac...they are our inspiration.
Barbara has been performing Stevie Nicks tributes since the early 1990s, and is the only tribute artist who started then, and is still performing. She has performed nationwide from LA, to Dallas/Austin, to Florida, New York, Chicago and many cities in between. Stemming from her love of Stevie's music and unique presentation and "heart and soul" she pours into her songwriting, Barbara is determined to portray her in only the most authentic fashion, in look, and sound.
The members of White Winged Dove are professional, long time musicians, who take each aspect of performance seriously. Learning the nuances of each song from the "released" version, and, as Barbara does from listening to all the demos, gathering pieces from the songwriting process to bring to the live presentation.

White Winged Dove, the Stevie Nicks tribute based just outside of Atlanta, flies out of the darkness, into the light, in 2014.
Atlanta, GA, January 12, 2014 --(PR.com)-- People tried to keep White Winged Dove down. This Stevie Nicks tribute, formed in 2009 by front vocalist and manager, Barbara Joy, has patiently been biding their time to spread their wings and fly.
"Nothing, and no one is ever going to stop me from achieving my goals and making White Winged Dove the #1 80s era Stevie Nicks tribute, worldwide," says Barbara. Although they auditioned, and played with many different musicians, they were always searching for the right match...members that brought no drama, or Negative energy, and did bring lots of talent. Barbara has been performing Stevie Nicks tribute shows, Nationwide, since 1993, longer than any other Nicks/Mac tribute still performing.
This dynamic band debuted its 2014 tour in Tucker, GA. at the Moonshadow Tavern, and with their management team at Maximum Bands (based in Florida) will be traveling nationwide in the next two years.
Not only performing Nicks/Mac songs, White Winged Dove also has two sets of Classic Rock/Soul and Pop, including hits from the Pretenders, Doobie Brothers, Linda Ronstadt, and many more. Audiences will be thrilled to hear classics like "Vehicle" (Ides of March) or "How Long" (Ace) performed live, by this multi talented band.
"We are not another bar band, or not another tribute band, for that matter," says Barbara. "When you come to see us, it is an experience, and we want you to remember us, and come see us again, and again, so we make sure each show is unique and really captivating."
Not to mention the cool items on White Winged Dove's merch table. Barbara hand cuts and creates "Stevie Nicks style" crescent moon necklaces, pyramid pendants, floppy velvet berets, and many things gypsy, that the fans of the original ethereal Rhiannon will just love.
