With the recent passing of rock n' roll legend Tom Petty, we thought it would be fun to have a celebration event for all the music he's given us over the past 40 years, and also to support some worthy causes as well!
Live music will be provided by the debut performance of Ventura Blvd, playing the best of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' music live, with special guest appearances too! Ventura Blvd consists of veteran musicians from some of the Omaha area's top bands, and they'll be sure to put on a great live show!
