The Damn Torpedoes
The Damn Torpedoes have it: attitude, mojo, chemistry, skill, determination…and use those qualities to pay tribute to an American band who for 4 decades have been the pure embodiment of the same, Tom Petty and the Heart breakers.
Since the mid-70s, Tom and his Heart breakers have 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 have 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 the world’s greatest bands. Painstaking attention to detail - tones, arrangements, harmonies, performance and look - will give the audience an experience that’s as close to Tom Petty and the Heart breakers as you’re going to find.
