ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - The Fabulous Armadillos entertained a big crowd at the Summertime By George finale Wednesday night at Lake George.
The weather was beautiful and it was a great way to end the weekly summertime concert series put on by the St. Cloud Rotary.
"This is absolutely perfect, I mean light breeze, blue skies, 80 degrees, a huge crowd, great music. What more could you ask for to end a season on?" Entertainment Chair Troy Fritz said.
The Fabulous Armadillos kept the near capacity crowd rocking with hits from Aerosmith and ZZ Top.
"It's just been fantastic, people have really enjoyed, we've had some new bands that were outstanding, you know last week we had a Meatloaf tribute show which was new, and then ending the season of Summertime By George with the Fabulous Armadillos is just fantastic," Fritz said.
Fritz estimates the crowd reached 19,000 people at its peak.
Fritz and the rest of the Rotarians who put on the concerts will take a much deserved month off, then it's back to booking bands for next summers shows.
