The Petty Experience is the South’s premier tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The band puts on a world-class show featuring tracks from the Heartbreakers’ catalog, Tom’s solo releases, some of Tom’s favorite artists, and songs from the Traveling Wiburys. Our goal is to celebrate the life and work of Tom through high octane performances that fully involve the audience. We don’t just give them a great show, we give them an all-round feel-good experience.
