The Waiting - A Tribute to Tom Petty
The Waiting - A Tribute to Tom Petty
The Waiting is a roadhouse rock ‘n roll band from Bozeman, Montana that celebrates the music of Tom Petty. Not exactly a “cover” or “tribute” band, The Waiting is—in the spirit of The Heartbreakers—first and foremost a BAND: a motley mix of musicians and friends interpreting the songs of one of rock’s greatest legends.
The band’s motto is “We bring the Petty to your town,” and since 2013 they’ve been doing exactly that all across the Treasure State. Whether it’s one of Tom Petty’s smash hits with the Heartbreakers, a sampling from his solo albums, or even a collaboration with the Traveling Wilburys, The Waiting runs the gamut, performing each tune with undeniable, fiery live energy and a devotion to showing each person in the crowd a damn good time. We think Tom would approve!
The Waiting is: Levi Main (guitar/vocals); Doc Wiley (bass); David Dyas (guitar/vocals); Jason Kechely (drums); Rick Winking (lead guitar); and Pete Christensen (keyboards).

"Life as a rancher is never easy. Long hours, little money and a seemingly endless amount of work fill each day. Sometimes, those responsibilities can keep you from fulfilling other dreams. For singer-songwriter Jason Wickens, music and ranching naturally go hand in hand.
While learning the ropes on his family’s ranch in Montana, he also taught himself guitar. As he grew older, he saved up enough money from working in oil refineries to build himself a small studio. It steadily grew into a special place where friends could gather, create and share great music. That led to the development of “Live From The Divide,” a public radio program that showcases works of the songwriter community.
But none of this has come easily. Balancing work, family and music is no easy feat. Many times, Wickens was had to take up ranching jobs to keep things afloat. Even during the darkest days, he was inspired by his fellow songwriters to keep marching forward."
