Just wanted to drop a quick line and tell you how impressed I was with Free Fallin – great guys to work with, and they sound AMAZING! Tons of compliments, and our largest Sunday crowd ever – almost 4,000!

I would like to thank Free Fallin for performing in the Art in the Square Festival in Southlake, Texas. They have to be the best Tom Petty Tribute Band in the United States. They were professional in every aspect, from booking the event to their awesome performance. They captivated the crowd with their awesome performance. If the opportunity arises to see or book this band for your event, they will not disappoint!

"It was such a pleasure having your band Free Fallin play at the Blue Water Fest in Port Huron, Mi this past summer. The crowd thoroughly enjoyed your performance and our crew had nothing but nice things to say regarding working with your team. You are all top notch professionals and high quality musicians. Thank you for truly paying tribute to the American Icon, Tom Petty. "
Thank you, Jaime Wilkins

"What an awesome show Friday night! I've been waiting for like forever for you guys to come back down this way! Was sad I missed the Saturday night show but the Friday show was the highlight of my fall so far! I'm hoping to come up to MSP for a weekend of your show and the Holy Rocka Rollaz, another one of the Twin Cities finest. Thanks again"

For any promoter or booking agent looking for outstanding entertainment I highly recommend Free Fallin', a tribute to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. I booked Free Fallin’ to headline at Sterlingfest main stage concert series and found the band to be spectacular on all levels and aspects of a live band. Aside from Free Fallin’ perfectly recreating the look and sound of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers they were an exceptionally easy band to work with. Free Fallin' was clearly one of the most polished and professional bands I’ve had the pleasure of booking for our city festival. Without a doubt Free Fallin' is a high energy act that kept our audience entertained, on their feet and singing along nonstop to flawless renditions of Petty’s deep catalog of hits.

"Mike, We had
such a great time!! The band was amazing and I really enjoyed
getting to know all the guys, especially Mark. My husband was so
surprised and all our friends had so much fun. We would definitely
do this again - actually it may have to be an annual event! I would
love to write up a testimonial if it could be of use. Thanks so
"I've decided we r super spoiled. It was nice to say I've seen Tom. FF musicians are just as talented and we r ALWAYs in the front row! The folks at target center don't know what they r missin!"

To Anyone Interested in Booking Free Fallin:
When people say Free Fallin is the nation’s premier salute to Tom Petty they aren’t kidding. Free Falling rocked and amazed the crowd at the Wildey Theatre in Edwardsville, IL on November 3rd, 2012. The theatre already looks forward to the group’s potential return to the Wildey Theatre in the future. Not only does this group perfectly match the instrumentation and music quality of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, they match the overall atmosphere leaving your crowd longing for
song after song.
Free Fallin The Nations #1 Tribute to Tom Petty hit the stage running and swept up every audience member in the house. This group is a perfect addition to any tribute series at any size venue. Their stage presence keeps the audience watching and listening bringing a true live performance to life.
As a venue you work with a variety
of different types of talent. Free Fallin The Nations #1 Tribute to
Tom Petty may have huge stage presence, but this band is an absolute
delight to work with from load in to load out. Not only is the
band a pleasure day of show, but this band takes every effort to
help promote their performances. The help with press releases,
social media marketing, video clips,
"The kickoff night also featured several bands on the saloon stage. The
Minnesota Whisky Pigzz, a local favorite kicked off Moondance and people
immediately fell under the Moondance spell. Next up was Free Falling,
which is a tribute to Tom Petty. I would have to venture to guess how much
time this band spent learning these songs note perfect, as well as
learning how the band sounds, moves and acts on stage. This was a most
impressive tribute to Petty and the band should be back next year."
"I heard about this band that was in our nearby town awhile ago. Saw an ad
that the owner was having them back to give a free Valentine's concert at
her bar "Froggy's" in Pine City, MN. So I called a neighbor and went to
it. After minutes we dropped our jaw and put our thumbs up!
"Here's a delayed Thank You for the best rockin' time I have had in a long
time - ABATE Rally - Labor Day weekend. Seriously, I never thought anyone
could be Petty, except the Man himself. I sold my State Hockey Final
Tickets in 1982 to see Tom Petty LIVE at the Met Center but you guys do
him justice and You guy's have it nailed! I now know about your website
and will be out to see you again. (I hope ABATE books you too! An Encore
Performance would be great!) You Got Lucky, When I Found You!!"
"Hey, I looked for a Tom Petty cover band and WOW,
I'm so impressed of the voice and the music at all. Really great guys!"
"I was very impressed with you guys this past
Saturday night at Torge's.
"Thanks, you guys are fabulous and belong in

the Isle of Capri. Please do send us updates, we really enjoy you guys!!"
"Thanks Marc, for the opportunity to work with Free

"I just saw you
in Rice Park on my lunch break. If I had closed my eyes, I would swear it
was Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. By the way, I have also played his
songs. You guys are terrific. Anyway, congratulations to you guys. I wish
I was up there playing with you. Keep up the excellent work."
