Shadow Of Doubt was founded in 2009 to express passion for Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers music. Since the untimely passing of Tom Petty in October of 2017, it become our mission to provide a great source for the many thousands die-hard Tom Petty fans. We are grateful to play for so many wonderful audiences and we play all the big hits and plenty of "deep cuts" as well. We also mix in some Mudcrutch and Traveling Wilburys.
