CTB and Friends   —  THE MUSIC OF TOM PETTY

The State Theatre
453 Northampton Street

610-252-3132

Tonight's gonna be a night to remember! We'll play at least 22 songs from the great Tom Petty songbook---and that barely puts a dent into the songbook! There are just too many great TP songs but we'll hit some really good ones and perhaps a few hidden gems. Come to Easton early and have dinner at one of the fine restaurants and then we'll see you at the show!

A celebration of the music of Tom Petty, as performed by the award winning Craig Thatcher Band, encompasses Petty and the Heartbreakers at their finest, including both the hits and some hidden gems. Beginning with selections from their debut album in 1976, CTB traces the various musical eras of this amazing talent with the same authority, research and musical expertise as when performing their popular “Eric Clapton Retrospective” and other fine musical tributes they perform. Spend an evening experiencing some timeless music from this sorely-missed master of pop music and beyond, Tom Petty.
