Big Toe and the Jam was the new standout at last year’s Summertime by George concert series in St. Cloud. From James Brown, Journey, Bob Marley, and Aretha to The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce, and Christina Aguilera, you will love this band! Rumor has it, they also play a Disco Extravaganza that will leave you breathless!

6:30 PM – The Fabulous Armadillos, presented by Lakeland Broadcasting (classic rock)

Back by popular demand for year three, the Fabulous Armadillos will round out our Rockin’ Robbins summer season. Since 2006, this amazing group of musicians has established a large and loyal following of “Dilloheads” in Central Minnesota with their spot-on re-creations of soft rock and classic rock hits. They are a busy group, and we are lucky to have them back in Willmar!
