About The Waiting

The Waiting is a rock ‘n roll band from Bozeman, Montana that  celebrates the music of Tom Petty. Not exactly a “cover” or “tribute”  band, The Waiting is—in the spirit of The Heartbreakers—first and  foremost a BAND: a motley mix of musicians and friends interpreting  the songs of one of rock’s greatest songwriters and musicians, the  legendary Tom Petty.

The band’s motto is “We bring the Petty to your town,” and since 2013  they’ve been doing exactly that all across the Northwest Corridor .  Whether it’s one of Tom Petty’s smash hits with the Heartbreakers, a  sampling from his solo albums, or even a collaboration with the Traveling  Wilburys, The Waiting runs the gamut, performing each tune with  undeniable, fiery live energy and a devotion to showing each person in  the crowd a damn good time. We think Tom would approve!
