Trick Pony To Get Back Together Again

Trick Pony, formed in 1996 by Keith Burns (lead guitar, vocals), Ira Dean (bass guitar, upright bass, vocals), and Heidi Newfield (lead vocals, harmonica, acoustic guitar), recorded three studio albums: Trick Pony, On a Mission and R.I.D.E., released in 2001, 2002 and 2005, respectively. These albums produced eight charted singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including four Top 20 hits: "Pour Me," "On a Night like This," "Just What I Do" and "On a Mission."

But in 2006, Newfield departed for a solo career, and a failed experiment with a replacement singer named Aubrey Collins lasted only a year before the group disbanded after Collins and Dean left in 2007 and 2008, respectively.

Now, almost a decade later, the original trio of Burns, Dean and Newfield are getting the band back together and will launch a brand new website making the official announcement later today. The trio has been making social media "teases" over the last 24 hours but dates are booked already in clubs on what will be called The Reunion Tour:


  1. Their debut cd was good. The next two, not so much. Saw them at the WTC.

  2. When the members of Trick Pony went their separate ways in 2006, not once did the thought cross their minds that they would someday reunite. But seven years later, Heidi Newfield, Keith Burns and Ira Dean are creating music that they feel “fate” was just waiting to present.
