the music of tom petty with southern accents*

Thursday, August 30 at 8:00 p.m.
Friday, August 31 at 8:00 p.m.

Assembled from a team of talented musicians from the Nashville studio & touring circuit, Southern Accents recreates the music, style, and sound of Tom Petty with precision and wildly contagious enthusiasm. As the Ultimate Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers Experience, Southern Accents brings the timeless melodies, sweet rhythms, and wild rock-music of Tom Petty to the stage for everyone to experience and fall in love with all over again. 



Robert Randolph and the family band*

Saturday, September 1 at 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, September 2 at 8:00 p.m.

We're wrapping up the summer season with an energetic show you won't want to miss! Pedal steel guitar virtuoso Robert Randolph is the frontman for this funk/soul jam band. Randolph's unprecedented prowess on his instrument garnered him a spot on Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" list, and also gained the attention of artists like Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews, The Roots, and Jack White, who have since collaborated with Randolph on stage and in the studio.
