Close your eyes and you won’t know the difference. Open them and you still might be fooled. The Insiders present the premier Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers experience. With 6 veteran musicians and decades of combined stage and touring experience, The Insiders are genuinely running down the dream.

It all starts with frontman Max Lockwood. “I grew up listening to Tom. My mom would play Tom Petty’s Greatest Hits while she worked out. I’d sit at the top of the stairs and listen to those songs—it was my most requested CD at the age of 6.” In high school, Lockwood’s band Big Dudee Roo started covering Mary Jane’s Last Dance at their frequent shows in West Michigan. “Tom was part of the great American landscape to me—a legend by the time I was musically conscious. We got a great crowd reaction with Petty tunes, and people frequently commented that I sounded authentically ‘Petty’.”

When you hear it, you know it

Listening Room strikes a chord with music lovers who crave a more intimate setting—one that goes against the mainstream concert experience.

Up close and musical

Our venue’s stage is one foot off the ground, creating an instant connection between the artist and the audience. You’ll feel like you’re in an underground jazz club, whether you’re hearing folk, rock, or any other number of genres.

Take a step inside

Take the tour and see what makes us wired for sound.

Bourbon

The bottom shelf isn’t invited. We’ll have the good stuff. It’ll be neat. (Or on the rocks, that's up to you.)

Cocktails

We’re teaming up with Long Road Distillery to create a series of signature draft cocktails. Not only are they delicious, we want to make sure the sound of shakers comes from the band, not the bar.

Beer & Wine

The stage isn’t the only place we’re curating. With select craft beers on tap and just the right wines on our list, you’ll love the tastes of Listening Room as much as the sounds.
