The Petty Hearts are a nationally touring Tom Petty tribute band celebrating the life and musical legacy of Tom Petty’s amazing 40-year career in rock and roll. They perform faithful renditions of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ extensive catalog including dozens of his best-known Top 40 hits along with some deeper album cuts.
The Petty Hearts have performed across the country before thousands of music fans at festivals, performing arts theaters, amphitheaters and nightclubs. The band has headlined at venues affiliated with Live Nation, iHeart Radio, the Hard Rock Café, the Miami Marlins, the Miami Dolphins, state fairs and dozens of municipalities. The Petty Hearts are also the only Tom Petty tribute invited to play the national Beatle fans convention known as Abbey Road on the River.
