The Entertainment, Theatre & Culture summer concert series started off with a double-header tribute to rock icons Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Stevie Wonder Saturday night at Lake Clementia Amphitheater. First up was Petty Theft, a band of six musicians who captured the style and spirit of Heartbreakers’ hits “I Won’t Back Down,” “An American Girl,” “Breakdown,” “Refugee” and more as the heat of the day became evening cool and the crowd on the dance floor grew. After two encores, Petty Theft left the stage and ETC gave away prizes and a gift certificate from sponsor Plaza Foods before Timeless Wonder began the second show of the night with a rousing version of “Sir Duke.” The five-member ensemble featured vocalist Steven Baldwin embodying the look and sound of Stevie Wonder at the keyboard. In addition to selections from the iconic ‘70s “Songs in the Key of Life” LP, the group performed hits that defined other decades, from the 1960s hit “My Cherie Amour” to the 1980s’ “I Just Called to Say I Love You” for the audience of about 600.
