Damn The Torpedoes
Mesmerizing audiences since 2007, DAMN THE TORPEDOES offer a complete Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers concert experience. Whether performing note for note renditions of the studio recordings or engaging the audience with actual live versions of TPATH's performances, patrons and venues can be assured that DTT delivers the "AWE" factor EVERY TIME.
Rich Kubicz, who plays the role of Tom Petty in the show, has been playing guitar and singing since his early teens. By 2007, so many people had told him that he looked and sounded like Tom Petty that he decided to put together Damn The Torpedoes as a tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
Not knowing much about the tribute world at the time, he started by finding some of the best local musicians and trying to replicate that iconic Heatbreakers sound. The goal was to play all of the studio hits, some of the live versions and a few deep cuts to create the illusion of a Tom Petty concert performance. This meant that each band member would need to find the same sounds as on the records and play their parts note for note.
Over the years Damn The Torpedoes has evolved with a deeper understanding of the Tom Petty catalog and more committed members. The current lineup has been in place for several years and demonstrates the unspoken chemistry that makes any great band. All of the signature riffs, harmonies and underlying parts of the music are there---and the show has become “second nature”with an artistry and emotion that makes audiences smile. Or as Rich likes to say, we deliver the “awe factor” in every performance.
