[...] The band’s seven members share a passion for keeping this kind of music — well-crafted, timeless rock ‘n’ roll songs like “Go Your Own Way” and “American Girl” — alive. In a live show, with lighting and costume changes that feel theatrical or movielike, they can easily play for two or three hours, promising to take people in the audience on a roller coaster of emotions.
That’s led to the band becoming a hot booking around the state. After playing recently at the Boulder Theatre in Boulder, they have a show this weekend at Boot Barn Hall in Colorado Springs.
Everyone in the band feels a “gravitational pull” to this kind of music, says Bryan Stacks, who lives in Colorado Springs and plays several instruments in the Petty Nicks Experience. As a self-described “golden area MTV kid,” he remembers listening to a lot of Tom Petty. He takes pride in trying to bring the full-band experience to the stage. “What gives me goosebumps is when you look up on stage and you see all the parts being played together like it’s supposed to be,” he said. “There’s no backing tracks. It’s just true to the original.”
The vocal harmonies are also known to bring about goosebumps. And when Osborn sings something like “Landslide,” she goes all out with makeup and costumes, with designs based on photos of what Stevie Nicks looked like in different eras. “I’m not trying to be her,” Osborn said. “I’m trying to channel her and pay tribute to her.”
She feels like a messenger of memories in a way, perhaps reminding people who saw Fleetwood Mac in concert what it was like or, for those who haven’t, offering a glimpse into what it would be like. For Osborn to get to sing these songs, it feels like how that TikTok video made millions of people feel: just really happy. “That’s what we’re all trying to do with this band,” she said. “It’s like, remember that feeling this music gave you. And let’s not forget this.”
