Wild Buffalo and Terpene Transit Presents
Petty or Not is a Tom Petty (and more) tribute act that consists of Kevin Chryst (Acorn Project, Baby Cakes), Aaron Guest (Polecat), Craig Jewell, Jeremy Elliott (Polecat), Stephanie Walbon (Baby Cakes), Jeff Ballew (Baby Cakes), and other special guests. These friends realized their shared love and respect for Tom’s music, as well as the formative influence it had on their development as musicians, and wanted to honor Tom’s immense legacy. Petty or Not has never pretended to be or mimic Tom Petty, but rather honor his unparalleled lyricism, vast collaborations, and culturally driving melodies. As local musicians, teachers, and producers, the members of Petty or Not consistently strive to update their repertoire based on audience requests and favorites, newfound favorite songs from Tom’s catalog, and surprising compilations, including music from Fleetwood Mac.
What began as a one off commemoration show, the band’s popularity has since demanded more and has played at Downtown Sounds for over five thousand people, Summer Meltdown Festival, a sold out show at The Tractor Tavern in Ballard, and many more.
Petty or Not will be performing a very special night of music to celebrate the holiday with a, “Petty Heavy Set with Other Heady Classics from his Buds.”
