Go see Petty Theft. Your life will never be the same.

They are that good. I've seen them in SF, Novato, Fremont, Napa, San Rafael, Pleasant Hill and probably other places.

Even better than the real thing!

This is one amazing band! Dan Durbin is one of Marin's musical treasures. All of the other band members are also great musicians and are able to capture the Petty sound and add there own personality to the show. I see them whenever I can.

Review by Carolyn M.

Petty Theft, San Francisco’s most real & true Tom Petty cover band rocks hard with well executed Heartbreaker covers, often gathering the devoted Petty Heads into full-on sing-alongs where the audience becomes as much a part of the experience as the band of recreating Tom Petty's incredible back catalogue of songs.

With Petty Theft, there is none of the campiness that some cover bands try to achieve when emulating another rock band. With Petty Theft, it's all about the greatness of the songs and music of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
