The depth of the care and effort that Southern Accents put into their stage presence matches Tom Petty’s moves and music, separating them from any other tribute band out there. They play like it is their very own music while showing respect to its original creator. Southern Accents bring the timeless melodies, sweet rhythms, and wild rock-music of Petty to the stage for everyone to experience and fall in love with all over again, recreating some of the most important rock songs ever written.

The Coasters are an American rhythm and blues and rock ‘n’ roll vocal group that had a string of hits in the late 1950s. Beginning with “Searchin” and “Young Blood,” their most memorable songs were written by the songwriting and producing team Leiber and Stoller. Although the Coasters originated outside of mainstream doo-wop, their records were so frequently imitated that they became an important part of the doo-wop legacy through the 1960s. The Coasters’ hits also comprised a major portion of the song score for the 1994 musical revue Smokey Joe’s Café, a retrospective of Leiber and Stoller songs that received one GRAMMY® Award and seven Tony Award® nominations following its 1995 Broadway debut. From “Yakkety Yak” to “Charlie Brown” to “Poison Ivy,” these monumental songs helped induct the Coasters into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.
