The Insiders: A Tribute To Tom Petty
Saturday, November 4 - Doors 8pm - $20 adv. - All Ages
Close your eyes and you won't know the difference. Open them and you still might be fooled. The Insiders present the premier Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers experience. With 6 veteran musicians and decades of combined stage and touring experience, The Insiders are genuinely running down the dream.
It all starts with frontman Max Lockwood. "I grew up listening to Tom Petty. My mom would play the Greatest Hits record while she worked out. I'd sit at the top of the stairs and listen to those songs—it was my most requested CD as a young kid." In high school, Lockwood's band Big Dudee Roo started covering Petty songs at their frequent shows in West Michigan. "Tom Petty was part of the great American landscape to me—a legend by the time I was musically conscious. We got a great crowd reaction with Petty tunes, and people frequently commented that I sounded a lot like him."
