Petty Thief
Petty Thief
"Petty Thief" was formed the Fall of 2006 when Guitarist/Vocalist Andy Volmer gathered up some local musician friends to put together a band to play a set of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers hits at a Halloween party at a venue in West Seattle (The Rocksport). What started out as a one night stand has turned into a love affair that lasted for over 10 years now and travels all over the great Pacific Northwest!!

"Petty Thief" does a musically accuarate 60-120 min (depending on the show) set of Tom Petty's Greatest Hits. No silly wigs, no costumes, no funny beards, just the GREAT music of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers!! Through the years, some great musicians have come and gone through the band, but right now, the band line up is sounding better than it ever has!! If you love the music of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (and lets be honest, who doesn't??!!!), get out there and see Petty Thief live and in action.
The Neil Youngs
The Neil Youngs
The Neil Youngs" were born out of an idea that friends Steve Crabtree and Andy Volmer started talking about while having a few beers together. They wanted to start a new music project together but they wanted it to be something different than the normal cover/tribute band format and, first and foremost, they wanted to pay particular attention to the music. Not just try to look the part with a wig or fancy clothes. Like it is with Neil Young, to them, it’s all about the music. Since both Crabtree and Volmer are huge Neil Young and Crazy Horse fans, they knew they wanted to form a band with that same sound and feel playing tribute to the passionate music of Neil Young and Crazy Horse. But they couldn't decide who was going to be the "Neil" of the group. Both guys have the ability to front the band as the Neil character, but that would mean that one of them wouldn’t get to sing lead, which wasn’t what they wanted. Then they hit on the idea, "what if we shared the lead vocal duties and we BOTH were Neil"? So they set out looking for 2 more “Neil’s” that shared their same vision, and finally finished the lineup with long time friends Frank Corbino on Bass and Patrick Coy on Drums. Each guy in the band wanted to sing lead and they are all great singers in their own write, so why not have everyone be "Neil" at some point or another during the show? Thus, “The Neil Youngs” were born.

Lead guitarist/Vocalist Steve Crabtree and Rhythm guitarist/Vocalist Andy Volmer, along with Bassist/Vocalist Frank Corbino and Drummer/Vocalist Patrick Coy, (recently replaced by Richard Sabol) came together in the Summer of 2015 with the idea and desire to put together an exciting show celebrating the timeless music of Neil Young and Crazy Horse. Playing classic songs like “Everyone knows this is Nowhere”, “Down by the River”, “Powderfinger”, “Cowgirl in the sand”, “Southern Man” and “Like a Hurricane” as well as acoustic songs like “Heart of gold”, “Sugar Mountain”, “Old Man”, “Comes a time”, “Long may you run”, “After the Goldrush, “Unknown Legend” and many, many more, “The Neil Youngs” take you on a musical journey celebrating Neil Young’s catalog of wonderful, heartfelt songs. Based out of the Seattle WA area, they play all over the state of Washington and are always continuing to expand their shows around the areas of the Great Pacific Northwest.

“The Neil Youngs” are currently accepting bookings for 2016. Please contact us if you’d like the music of Neil Young at your next event.
