Petty Thievery is: Bret Levick, Alice DiMicele, Gene Black, Matthew Kriemelman, Jeff Addicott, and Mark Thomas. This is a band of veteran musicians who have joined together to honor the music of Tom Petty. Each bring their love for Petty’s songs and the music of the Heartbreakers to this fun rock and roll tribute.
In the late 90’s Bret Levick co-created and fronted L.A. indie breakout band Gifthorse. His hooky songs have appeared in hundreds of trailers, commercials, video games, feature films and TV shows including Sons Of Anarchy, Lucifer and Shameless. He currently writes, produces and mixes music out of his Talent, Oregon studio and performs live with his original rock/americana band, LEFT.
Alice DiMicele has had a 30+ year career as a singer/songwriter and troubadour known for her moving songs, emotive, soulful voice and groovy guitar stlyle. Having released 14 albums on her indie label Alice Otter Music, she continues to tour as a solo artist and with her band Force of Nature.
Ohio native Gene Black first made a name for himself in Detroit rock clubs and recording studios. While still in his teens, he recorded with Chicago blues legend Luther Allison, at Motown’s iconic facility: Hitsville USA. Highlights include 15 years as Joe Cockers lead guitarist, multiple recording sessions with Tina Turner and co writer on top 10 hit songs for Rod Stewart and Heart. His searing guitar solos honor the music of Petty and the style of Mike Campbell while being authentically Gene.
Matthew Kriemelman is most prominently known as a veteran drummer for the blue man group in Las Vegas from 2000-12, and has performed in the New York and Chicago productions. Matthew honed his skills in NYC’s downtown club scene for 10 years beginning at the age of 18 at iconic clubs such as CBGB’s, China Club, Limelight and the Marquee. Since moving to the Rogue Valley Matthew has become the go-to first-call drummer for studio sessions, local musicians, and producers like Jeff Pevar and Sylvia Massey.
Jeff Addicott is one of the region’s busiest freelance musicians. He studied popular music performance at Mount Royal College in Calgary, Alberta before moving to Oregon in 1996. He currently performs with a wide variety of artists, including: Sage Meadows, Jimmy Pinwheel, The Muskadine Blues Quartet, Modern Prometheus, Salsa Brava, Gayle Wilson, The Djangoholics, The Blue Notes, The Wild Goose Chase Trio, Paul Turnipseed, Danielle Kelly and The Sultans. In addition to his busy music schedule, Jeff is also a full-time glassblower.
Mark Thomas is a “meat and potatoes” kind of keyboardist: piano, electric piano, and B3 organ. Formal training in piano wasn’t as fun as gigging, so Mark has been on a quest to experience the energy of live performance as much as possible both on keys and as a live sound engineer and recordist. Mark has been on stage and in the studio with many of his musical heroes including: Craig Chaquico, Justin Hayward, John Mayall, Stanton Moore, Leon Russell, The Subdudes, Robin Trower, Jeff Pevar, Alice DiMicele, and Bret Levick to name a few. Mark brings a soulful sense of rock and blues keyboards to Petty Thievery that harkens the style of Benmont Tench.
