Running Down a Dream — Bobby Bandiera pays tribute to Tom Petty
Join me Nov. 5 at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank as my good friend Bobby Bandiera pays tribute to the late, great,Tom Petty. Bobby will be playing the best songs from Tom Petty's long career and celebrate music that defined a generation.
Earlier this year, I played the Basie and paid tribute to legendary supergroup The Traveling Wilburys. We performed Wilburys songs, and we played music from Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, George Harrison, and Tom Petty. Tom Petty. God bless Tom Petty. He was one of the great American singer-songwriters, maybe one of the last great American singer-songwriters. His music has always affected me, and always will.
A portion of the proceeds from this night will go to MusiCares, which recently named Tom Petty their "Person Of The Year.” MusicCares is an industry organization that helps musicians. The Recording Academy's charity MusiCares provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. MusiCares' services and resources cover a wide range of financial, medical, and personal emergencies, and each case is treated with integrity and confidentiality.
