The Ultimate Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers Experience

Into the Great Wide Open...

Refugee was formed in early 2014 by six seasoned New York musicians who love Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. It is with love, respect and all our hearts that we pay tribute to Tom, one of the greatest American songwriters of our time. It is a daunting task to do justice to this brilliant catalogue of music but doing so means everything to this band. Tom was taken from all of us much to soon but his beautiful legacy will live on forever. We love you Tom.

Refugee has become one of the most successful nationally touring tributes to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Playing the best of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Tom Petty solo music and some Mudcrutch and Travlin' Willbury's thrown in for good measure with such crazy precision you have to see Refugee to believe them.
