Since the very first Rockin’ Robbins back in 2016, the Fabulous Armadillos have been closing out the Rockin’ Robbins concert series to ever-expanding record crowds. This incredible 8-piece band has established a large and loyal following of “Dilloheads” throughout Minnnesota (and beyond) with their spot-on re-creations of songs from Country to Motown, Heavy Metal to Soft Rock, and they play them just like you remember. So COME OUT OF YOUR SHELL and see what everybody keeps talking about!
