Here's The Deal...

We're just a bunch of pals who love Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. We wanted to honor the memory of Tom, and his timeless, artistic creation.

What we AREN'T, impersonators or a band cashing in on a tragic loss. So you won't see someone who looks like or acts like TPHB. What we guarantee you'll hear are his greatest songs performed as closely to the original releases as possible WITHOUT the aid of supplemental computer tracks in a live, high energy setting.

The Petty Junkies band is made up of professional musicians and artists who have been very successful in their own right. Well over 300 hit songs have been penned, played on, sung, or produced by the members of this band.

Mark HIll, born July 27 1967, grew up in a small farming community in the southern most part of Illinois. Raised in a musical family, it was apparent early that he had a gift and quite an ear for music. He began playing piano at the age of 5 picking out melodies of songs he'd heard in church. At age 11 he found the bass guitar quite by chance and knew in short order that bass was his love. The bass quickly became an extension of him. His early days of playing bass consisted of local recordings and traveling regionally in the midwest with his family. In order to make a living, at 22 he switched to top 40 bands in the area all the while knowing that a session career in Nashville was truly what he desired. In 1990 he made the 4 hour move to Nashville and quickly made the producers list of up and coming bass players securing many master recording sessions. In between sessions he toured with artists such as, Steven Curtis Chapman, Martina McBride, Keith Urban (band leader), Reba McEntire, and Brooks& Dunn. 1990- Current he has become a first call session musician known for his strong Fender bass tone, working 600+ sessions annually and garnering six nominations for ACM bass player of the year, and twice reaching the Music Row All-Stars list. Recording for artists such as The Civil Wars, Kelly Clarkson, Reba McEntire, Brooks & Dunn, The Lone Bellow, Holly Williams, Brett Dennen, Carrie Underwood, Richard Marx, Hank Jr, Toby Keith, Kenny Loggins, Montgomery/Gentry, Eric Church, Luke Bryan, and Charlie Peacock.
