The "High Country Heartbreakers" is a musical group dedicated to recreating the songs of the legendary artist Tom Petty.

Forming in 2022, this five piece band has taken off quickly and very successfully, growing its fan base playing several venues and private events in the Denver metro area. "HCH" plays your favorite Tom Petty hits but also likes to perform the songs that are a little bit more obscure for the big fans. With over 30 songs in their catalog, the "High Country Heartbreakers" offer a true Tom Petty experience!

They are actively booking shows for 2024.
