Shadow of Doubt Bio
The Tom Petty tribute Shadow Of Doubt rose from core Cleveland West side cover groups in January 2009. Founding member Rod Wolanin was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in spring 2010, carrying on with the band until his passing in March 2011. We are grateful to have played for so many wonderful audiences over the years, with special thanks going to Rod and our other former bandmates: Paul Kompier, Joe Morales, Elvis Manson, Jordan Davis, Ed Callahan. Our shows are a celebration of the diverse, time-honored, often witty and always tuneful songs of Tom Petty. We play all the big hits, to be sure, and if you are a real Petty fan we have plenty of “deep cuts” for ya as well.
