The Annapolis Musicians Fund for Musicians, Inc. (AMFM) is presenting a new showcase series titled “In the Vane of…” where local Annapolis musicians will perform one cover song by a legendary artist and one original song in the vein of that same legendary artist to raise funds for AMFM.
The first in the series will be “In the Vane of Tom Petty” on April 14th at Rams Head On Stage at 7 PM. Tickets are $30 each and available at www.ramsheadonstage.com. Performing will be Big Hoax, Bumpin’ Uglies, Dave Tieff with Golden Road, Dean Rosenthal, Doug Segree, Fitzmaurice, Hall Williams, Michael K, PJ Thomas, Pasadena, Pressing Strings, Shane Gamble, Starbelly, and Swampcandy. Each of these artists will play one Tom Petty song and an original song in the style of, about, involving, or mentioning Petty.
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers have sold over 80 million records world-wide and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.
“We are really trying to cross-pollinate on several levels,” said Sean O’Neill, AMFM Vice-President and originator of the idea. “Not only will the audience hear several hit Tom Petty songs they already know and love, they will also get to hear new music from our very talented local songwriters – some of whom they may have never heard otherwise.”
