Vancouver tribute band honours Tom Petty in Chilliwack Cultural Centre show

Perfectly Petty, led by Canadian tribute artist Dave Danylchuk, is at the Cultural Centre Nov. 22

A Vancouver-based tribute band will be bringing Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers to life when they bring their show to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Nov. 22.

Perfectly Petty is a Tom Petty tribute band led by Canadian tribute artist Dave Danylchuk.

Danylchuk and all members of the band are Lower Mainland based musicians. The band most recently appeared in performance at The Blue Frog Studios White Rock in celebration of Tom Petty’s birthday.

Tom Petty was one of rock and roll’s most gifted songwriters and performers. His music has touched hundreds of millions worldwide over the over 40 years that he performed with the Heartbreakers. With songs like Free Fallin, Don’t Come Around Here No More, Refugee and countless others, Petty established himself amongst the best in the industry.

There have been several tribute bands emerging since his death in 2017, but the only one endorsed and supported by the top talent agents in B.C. is Perfectly Petty starring Danylchuk as Tom Petty. Danylchuk has been called “the second coming of Tom Petty” and the Perfectly Petty live show created by Roquemore Productions brings you as close to the Tom Petty concert experience as possible.

A true dead ringer in look, style, sound, and performance, Danylchuk has thrilled and transported audiences with his ability to honour Petty. He embodies the spirit of Petty and performs with a connection to the spirit of rock and roll that Petty was integral in cultivating.

The band includes Jordan Burgess (guitar, harp, vocals), Paul Fournier (bass, vocals), Scotty McCargar (drums, vocals), and Craig Dong (keyboard).

The Perfectly Petty live show brings the best Tom Petty hits and a sample of songs by Petty’s superstar musical collaborators The Beatles, the Byrds, Dylan, George Harrison and The Travelling Wilburys.

Also included in the show is a special guest appearance by Stevie Nicks tribute artist Raphael Roquemore of Gold Dust Gypsy, whose portrayal of Stevie is bewitching and enchanting.

Perfectly Petty is at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Friday, Nov. 22. Tickets $45 (plus fees) at the Box Office. Charge by phone at 604-391-7469 or online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.
