The California Mid-State Fair announced this week that Southern Accents will be performing at the 2018 Fair on Tuesday, July 24 at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. Southern Accents’ concerts will take place on the Frontier Stage and will be free with paid fair admission.

Assembled from an entire team of talented ace-musicians from the Nashville studio and touring-circuit, Southern Accents recreates the music, style and sound of Tom Petty professionally with immaculate precision and wildly contagious enthusiasm. United in their quest to be the ultimate Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers experience, each member of the band looks the part, plays the part, and lives the part; the result is pure entertainment & songs so dedicated and true to the originals that you’d swear music-history was being made all-over again right before your eyes and ears.

From their uncanny resemblance to the original band and the way they move onstage to the note-for-note, stunning recreations of Petty’s music from throughout his entire catalog, Southern Accents showcase the best of the best of his songs from his rise to fame and highlight every reason his music continues to be an essential part of what we all listen to today. Playing the tunes 100 percent live with no backing-tracks of any kind, the entire Southern Accents band pride themselves on being the most accurate representation & faithful tribute to Tom Petty’s music out there in the world today.

Southern Accents has already caught the attention and support of the Tom Petty Nation! fan club and their president Keith Eveland is planning a trip to see the band this coming spring
after spending time with their own doppelganger-version of Tom, Ronnie Gregg (vocals, guitar) in the summer of 2016. Playing hit-after-hit, night-after-night with Ronnie onstage are the incredible talents of Bob Ocker (guitar), Josh Rosen (keyboards), Jason Fletcher (guitar) and Paul Jones (bass); their combined experience includes playing with some of the country’s strongest voices & most accomplished artists such as Josh Groban, Trisha Yearwood, Aaron Tippin, Dolly Parton and many, many more. Southern Accents and its players have been invited onto thousands of stages throughout their experience and they’re ready to thrill thousands more.

The 2018 California Mid-State Fair runs July 18 to 29 and this year’s theme is “Ole, It’s Fiesta Time!” Connect with the California Mid-State Fair on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat.
