The Insiders: Tom Petty Tribute Band at the Lowell Showboat Sizzlin’ Summer Concert Series
Music Genre: Rock & Roll
The Insiders present the premier Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers experience. With six veteran musicians and decades of combined stage and touring experience, The Insiders are genuinely running down the dream. It all starts with frontman Max Lockwood. In high school, Lockwood’s band Big Dudee Roo started covering Mary Jane’s Last Dance at their frequent shows in West Michigan. After the passing of Tom Petty in October of 2017, Lockwood organized the band by pulling together some of his favorite musicians. “We try to honor what Mr. Petty and the Heartbreakers have done for rock and roll each night. We’re fans of the music foremost. These songs are woven into the fabric of the American identity.”
