The PettyBreakers: Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers Tribute
The PettyBreakers is the nation’s premier Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tribute act. Based in Southern California, this act accurately recreates the sights, sounds and concert experience of a Tom Petty concert.
From the hair to the clothes to the classic rock ‘n’ roll sound, The PettyBreakers put on a pitch-perfect tribute to rock legend Tom Petty and his trusty backing band, The Heartbreakers.
With a focus on the Petty and Co.’s most classic eras and best-loved hits, The PettyBreakers thrill audiences with a set list that’s as familiar as it is exciting — from American Girl and I Won’t Back Down to Free Fallin’ and Runnin’ Down a Dream.
The band is comprised of excellent musicians who have performed and recorded worldwide with international artists, including the Rembrandts and Gin Blossoms. Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers have written, recorded and performed some incredible songs that are loved by many. The PettyBreakers deliver an authentic rendition of their recordings and performances.
Impersonating the great Tom Petty with precision and style, Ozzie has played in original and tribute shows at the Shrine Auditorium (Los Angeles), the House of Blues (Dallas, Houston, San Diego), Pala Casino’s Starlight Theater, Viejas Casino’s Dream Catcher Theater, Blue Moon Theater (Pasadena), The Galaxy Theater (Santa Ana), and The Coach House (San Juan Capistrano). Having recorded at Bolic Sound, Sony Recording Studios and Emmit Rhodes Studio, he has also appeared on television in Europe, South America and U.S.
“Just wanted to reach out and say how much we enjoyed having Petty Breakers at Brixton over the weekend. Even [singer of Wild Child] who is incredibly hard to please when it comes to finding support bands that he likes, said “… these guys were good!”. For him that is a very powerful statement! We look forward to having them back in the new year!“

“I can highly recommend the PettyBreakers for your club or concert event. The band has taken …[its] projects very seriously from rehearsals, to costumes and being as true and authentic to the original act, in this case Tom Petty and Heartbreakers. One thing I really like about the band is how their set list has a few nuggets that they dig a little deeper for than just the standard great hits track listing. I’ve done a handful of shows with the guys and am looking forward to doing more this next year.” – Talent Buyer, Belly Up Tavern, Solana
