Heavy Petty was spawned out of the Sacramento, Californiaarea in 2018 with the inspiration of spreading the joy and paying tribute to the king of rhythmical storytelling from the one and only Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. This unique and genuine show that Heavy Petty provides pays tribute to the true and honest symphonic sounds of Tom Petty. The show is a genuine fresh reminder of what this true artistic legend shared with the whole world.
