    Breakdown began in the early part of the year 2000.  After being labeled a “Tom Petty” look alike, Scott decided maybe this was an avenue worth looking at.  With long time friends Eric (Guitar) Mike (Drummer) and Ricky (Bass), and later Tim Rovnak, They set out to put together a show to be remembered.  The rest is shall we say “history”.  





     These musicians form the core of Breakdown and combined have over 100 years in the music industry. They have been playing professionally together in this and other tribute shows since the 90’s.  Collectively they bring a re-creation of the Tom Petty experience with an accuracy rivaled only by Tom himself.  This show includes all the look and feel of Tom Petty presented by top industry pros.  



Breakdown IS:

Scott Blackwell lead vocals, guitars

Eric Garcia – guitars, back-up vocals, mandolin, harmonica

Ricky Williams – bass, back-up vocals

Listen to her heart
I won’t back down
You don't know how it feels
Learning to fly
Saving Grace
Free Falling
You got lucky
Into the great wide open
Yer so bad
Mary Jane’s last Dance
Here comes my girl
American Girl
The Waiting
She’s a woman in love
Running down a dream
Love is a long road
Don't do me like that
Even the losers
Face in the crowd
Handle with care
Jammin me
I need to know
You wreck me
Angel Dream and more...
