Pure Petty to Perform Prior to 4th of July fireworks in West Windsor

(WEST WINDSOR, NJ) -- In what has become an Independence Day tradition, Pure Petty, the Mid-Atlantic region’s premiere tribute to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, will perform prior to the fireworks display on July 4th at the annual L.E.A.D. FEST at Mercer County Park in West Windsor, NJ. 

The concert, which will consist of two 90-minute sets, begins at 7:00pm and will be immediately followed by a spectacular fireworks display.

This year’s performance will mark the third consecutive year Pure Petty has had the honor of celebrating our nation’s birthday at the venue.

The six-member, Gloucester County-based band has garnered a large and loyal following thanks to its clone-like recreations of such Tom Petty/Heartbreakers favorites as “American Girl,” “The Waiting,” Runnin’ Down A Dream” and “Don’t Do Me Like That,” as well as deeper cuts from Petty’s extensive catalog of songs.

The 10-day (June 28-July 7) L.E.A.D (Law Enforcement Against Drugs) FEST raises funds to support police departments in their battles against drugs, violence, bullying and violence. In addition to daily concerts, there are games, rides and food outlets.

Pure Petty was formed in 2019 by life long, accomplished musicians hailing from the Philadelphia area. Jimmy Mannix (Tom Petty) performed for years in numerous bands and would consistently be reminded of his uncanny vocal and physical resemblance to Petty. Eventually this sparked a discussion in one of his more recent bands about starting a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers tribute band.

Pure Petty's mission has been to recreate the music of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers with precision, intense attention to detail and unswerving respect for a revered musical legacy. Everyone's parts are intensely studied, down to the inflections in the way each word of every lyric is sung. Close your eyes and you won't know the difference. Open them and you still might be fooled!

Pure Petty pays tribute to one of the greatest American singer-songwriters of all time by delivering an astounding and memorable salute to the musical legacy of Tom Petty via a second-to-none, high-energy performance that leaves wildly enthusiastic, multi-generational crowds craving more!
