American Petty was formed out of their love for the man, the myth and now the legend Tom Petty. They are 6 guys who understand what it means to carry on Tom’s legacy with honor and professionalism.
American Petty not only performs all the top hits and some great B sides by the gang but they also do their best to look and play the part. Visually they strive to give the audience an eyeful of what it might have been like to see Tom Petty live, and sonically they make every effort to give the listener an earful of Tom’s best. When you experience American Petty and close your eyes, you should be transported back in time, again hearing history being made.
The band consists of Stanley Rose (lead vocals/guitars), George Welder (drums/vocals), Tom Monaco (guitars/mandolin/harmonica/vocals), Randy Mishler (bass), Steve Cramer (keys/vocals), and Ricky Stanberry as Mike Campbell on lead guitars.
Formed in 2017, American Petty woodshedded in their studio for almost a year before coming out and playing theaters and large clubs in the southwest. By spending so much time rehearsing and putting the show together, American Petty truly has honed a sound all its own while keeping with the original vision that was Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.
