The Damn Torpedoes have it: attitude, mojo, chemistry, skill and determination, and use those qualities to pay tribute to an American band who for 4 decades were the pure embodiment of the same, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
Starting in the mid-70s, Tom and his Heartbreakers churned out unforgettable classic rock gems. From “American Girl” and “Into the Great Wide Open” to “Free Falling”, “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” and beyond, they left an indelible mark on the American pop cultural landscape.
The Damn Torpedoes, whose name is a play on the seminal ’79 Petty album, Damn the Torpedoes, are long-time Austin musicians who have fashioned themselves in that mold: guys that have been around the block but attack the Petty hits like a hungry, young band out to conquer the world. By emphasizing intangibles like chemistry and staying power, The Damn Torpedoes recreate the sound and feel of one of rock’s greatest bands. Painstaking attention to detail – tones, arrangements, harmonies, performance and look – give the audience an experience that’s as close to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as you’re going to find.
