The Black Jacket Symphony offers a unique concert experience through recreating classic albums in a live performance setting. December 7 at Mobile’s Saenger Theatre will see the Black Jacket Symphony perform the late Tom Petty’s iconic record Damn The Torpedoes in its entirety by a group of handpicked musicians specifically selected for the album, with no sonic detail being overlooked–the musicians do whatever it takes to musically reproduce the album.
The performance is separated into two sets. The first set features Damn The Torpedoes. The second set, which features a selection of the album artist’s “greatest hits,” opens in full contrast to the first set with an incredible light display and the symphony being much more laid back. The tone is set very quickly that the show will feature the high level of musicianship of the act being covered and will also be accompanied by all the bells and whistles of a major rock and roll show.
