It was a beautiful night, with a stage (and backstage) full of talented musicians.
We’re pretty sure Thomas Earl Petty himself would’ve been proud.
But before we get to that, there was setting up and warming up.
Warming up the stage were the bosses of #100block music, Chance Lewis and Apt, plus a parade of special guests marching to the beats of DJ Skratchmo.
We are very proud of our Rooftop Concert crowd. Very proud.
On our team, the enchanting Mindy Gledhill and Mayor Curtis representing flyProvo.com!
Also on our team? Soundguy Joe Anderson (with the great Cherie Call behind him and baby!).
Now, on to the Petty.
