In the wake of Tom Petty’s untimely death last year, scores of musicians have formed tribute bands to pay homage to his legacy and celebrate his music. We are but six more souls who feel indebted to the man for his contributions to American musical culture and who refuse to let him go quietly into that good night.
Petty Coat Junction presents faithful renditions of Tom Petty classics from all phases of his prolific career with the Heartbreakers, Traveling Wilburys, Mudcrutch and his solo work.
One of the few benefits to growing older is that it becomes much easier to assemble a band. We become creatures of habit and we call on the musicians we most enjoy playing with. In the case of Petty Coat Junction, the only thing easier than selecting the material was assembling the cast.
