16-05-2019 12:00:00 16-05-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Tom Petty Tribute – Damn The Torpedoes at The Loft - 5/16 | 6:30PM DOORS / 8:00PM START Damn The Torpedoes 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. 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. Jimi Alan (Mike Campbell... Lead Guitar) Jimi has been playing guitar professionally for over 30 years in cover band and original music projects. With experience in various styles of music including Funk, Rock, Blues, and R&B, Jimi has mastered the techniques to play note for note renditions of some of the greatest lead guitarists and can create identical guitar sounds. Jimi is also an experienced sound technician and recording engineer. Gary Castelluccio (Benmont Tench/Scott Thurston... Keyboards, Piano, Guitar, Harmonica, Backing Vocals) Gary has been involved with music and performing since the age of 13. He started with guitar and later learned to play keyboard and harmonica. Over the years, he has played in cover bands , original projects and studio sessions. His experience and versatility has helped him to become a consummate side man adding support and color to the bands he works with. His music projects have allowed him to travel world wide as a Music Industry professional. He has also helped Musical instrument companies to develop many new products that are sold today in music stores everywhere. Jon Provan (Ron Blair/Howie Epstein, Bass Guitar and backing vocals) Jon caught the music bug young, playing and singing in rock bands, a cappella groups, sax quartets, theatre pits, recording studios and more. He's also laid down his bass groove for many Indie and original bands. . When not on stage with DTT, Jon is the musical director at a theater, a solo artist and a theatrical performer. Ross Kantor (Stan Lynch/Steve Ferrone...Drums/Percussion and Backing Vocals) Ross is the quintessential percussionist and the driving force behind DTT's tight rhythm section. His versatility allows him to play with the finesse of Stan Lynch and the power of Steve Ferrone while also adding polished vocals to an already very melodic harmony section. When Ross isn't playing with DTT, he is an in-demand drummer for live events, indie bands and studio sessions. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=359209 City Winery City Winery
