While I have seen my fair share of cover and tribute bands over my nearly 50 years, many of them just can’t, and don’t, match up to the real thing — no matter if it’s country, rock, jazz, punk or hip hop. So as a major fan of Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac, and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, I was somewhat skeptical when I was invited to attend a performance of The Petty Nicks Experience —especially after having seen Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham live in concert before.
[...] So on Saturday evening I bundled myself up and headed over to The Rialto Theatre in Loveland to check out The Petty Nicks Experience. And boy oh boy, am I glad that I did.
[...] From the opening song all the way through to the end of the concert, band members left every ounce of energy, talent and passion for their craft on that stage.
I’m not really one to clap along or dance when at a concert, especially when attending a show solo, but it was hard not to get sucked into the electricity of the band and enthusiasm of the audience.
And when guitar player, Justin Long, began the riff to Nicks’ “Edge of 17,” the audience went berserk — including myself.
Along with the amazing musical skills of the band, the vocals of Adrienne Osborne as Nicks and Julian Fulco Perron as Petty, elevated the group’s performance to more than a concert by a cover or tribute band. When both singers stated in an interview with the Greeley Tribune that they have studied the vocal stylings of Nicks and Petty for their parts, they weren’t joking.
[...] The entire show was akin to a theater production rather than a concert with its costume changes, video footage and colored strobe lights.
Looking around the venue, I saw all ages of audience members including seniors, families with kids and teens, folks like me in their late 40s/early 50s and young adults singing, dancing and really getting into the experience of The Petty Nicks Experience. The show is absolutely family friendly and seemed to be a hit across all the different generations of audience members.
I would highly recommend The Petty Nicks Experience to fans of all music genres and I am looking forward to seeing the band in action again.

[...] 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.”

The band coming to Poway Center for the Performing Arts on July 8 is the result of a what-if question. What if Stevie Nicks had been a Heartbreaker?
It could have happened.
Adrienne Osborn, one of two lead singers of The Petty Nicks Experience, said Nicks, who occasionally performed with Petty, said in an interview that she would have joined Tom Petty’s band if he had asked. “We ran with that idea,” Osborn said.
The lead singers of The Petty Nicks Experience say their concert is more than just a tribute show featuring the music of Petty and Nicks [More...]
