Somewhat Petty is an Asheville-based tribute band playing the best of rock icon Tom Petty, and, of course, the Heartbreakers, with some Traveling Wilburys thrown in for good measure. Somewhat Petty is comprised of 6 local musicians, all with one common goal: playing great rock music everyone loves - 40 years of Tom Petty & company.
They don’t look like them, they just sound like them. Come out, drink a few, and sing along!
Thank you for the amazing music you've given us for over 40 years. It truly has been the soundtrack of our lives. For about a year now, Somewhat Petty has been playing Tom's music. It never gets old... it makes us feel like we did when we first heard it. We find ourselves in the stories and get lost in the melodies. The people we play for love it just as much as we do. Most of the songs we play, they sing right along with us... it's amazing, really it is! As much as there is a void in our lives now, I can't even imagine the hole left in the hearts of his family, bandmates, and friends. Our thoughts and prayers and love go out to them. Tom, you will be missed forever. We love you.
