“Petty Criminals are absolutely brilliant! These guys are completely professional. They sound so authentic and look look the part. Covering all the big hits and the lesser known songs. All with a Great stage show and real presence. If you’re looking for a tribute act – look no further. They are the best.” – Marc Smith.
“The Petty Criminals smashed the evening and rocked the audience with some pretty or should I say Petty special covers of this great band Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers! The attention to musical detail was superb – the musicianship first class but oh those backing vocals and harmonies took the songs and tribute to another level. These guys picked up that the Heartbreakers didn’t just rock with the hardest but vocally harmonised with the best be that Howie or Scott. The crowd were bouncing and as a lifelong TPHB fan I would recommend you hear and go see these guys for a brilliant night and soak up Tom Petty’s great songwriting legacy!” – Terry Phillips.
