    Wawa Welcome America

    • Wednesday July 4th 2018, 7:00pm to 10:00pm
    After its exciting 2017 debut at the 25th annual Wawa Welcome America! July 4 Concert, The Philly POPS BIG Band will return to the nation's top Independence Day celebration in 2018.

    The Philly POPS BIG Band

    Tony and Grammy winner, R&B hitmaker, and international singing sensation Heather Headley joins the BIG Band with support from frequent POPS collaborators Tiffany Jones, Alita Moses and Deshanna Wooden. The BIG Band — led by Philly POPS principal trumpet Matt Gallagher — plays swing, ragtime and jazz in the style of the Count Basie Orchestra and Harry James Band, but has expanded its repertoire into all kinds of popular music from Latin to blues and rock. The BIG Band made history last July 4 with its memorable combination of R&B and rock to “Get the Party Started” and “Uptown Funk”.

    After an evening of performances, the city’s grand finale fireworks show brings the evening to a close.
