The Tom Petty Show", playing every song an audience could possibly want to hear-- all
the hits, a rotation of the b-sides, played and sung with reckless abandon, passion and
fire for as long as the crowds wanted to cheer and sing along.
Members of The Sundogs, who have released five records of their own, include
accomplished blues guitarist and songwriter Jon Harris, renowned gunslinger Benji
Shanks, drummer Kevin Leahy and ace Hammond keyboardist Kevin Thomas.
Collectively, they have shared stages with Tedeschi Trucks Band, Widespread Panic,
Chris Robinson, Zac Brown Band, Sugarland, Shawn Mullins, Jason Isbell, Blackberry
Smoke, The Wailers, The BoDeans, Burning Spear, Gatemouth Brown, Chuck Leavell,
Bill Kreuztman, Bloodkin, Lucero and The Wood Brothers.
Sometimes they have horns. They usually have a special guest or two. They are
ALWAYS great. Join us for one of the best nights of your life.
