After Midnight
1971 Mudcrutch, Tom Petty and his band at the time, played UF’s Inaugural Halloween Ball, starting at midnight, and ending at dawn, setting the highest standard when comparing Future Balls, with such a spectacular opening.

Back then, the Ball started late, around midnight, and featured local bands, including Tom Petty and his band, Mudcrutch, what would become the Heartbreakers.

Mudcrutch headlined the Second Ball in 1971. Under a near full moon, Tom and the band played Midnight to Sunrise, and set a high standard for all future Balls to strive.
