Oh cool was just talking about you guys with a couple from Redwood Falls that enjoy you guys, be sure to put this on your schedule as they were going to check out your summer schedule!! You guys keep getting gooder and gooder lol. Absolutely appreciate that your indoors volume is loud enough to enjoy on the dance floor but decent to visit with others at the tables with.. that is class act when you know you sound great with out having to drown out people enjoying everyone else visiting!! Not many bands get that and knowing you guys figured that out I can see you getting more and more gigs because it makes a difference especially for weddings and fundraisers... also keeps the crowds longer!! 🎉🎻🎉🎊🎉📵🎉🎻🎊
They are very good

Tuesday, July 17, 2018 -- The crowd loved Matt Vee’s Neil Diamond tribute last summer, and this show is just as amazing! Matt joins his cousins, Tommy and Jeff Vee (sons of the late Bobby Vee), onstage for this tribute to the original stars of the golden age of country music.
Tuesday, July 24, 2018 -- Leading lady Pamela McNeill from the Fabulous Armadillos brings her Fleetwood Mac tribute, “Rumours and Dreams” to our Rockin’ Robbins stage! She’s joined by Minnesota Music Hall of Famer, Mary Jane Alm, and Jeff Engholm from Collective Unconscious.
Tuesday, July 31, 2018 -- 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!
Tuesday, August 7, 2018 -- 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!

THANK YOU, SPONSORS! When we brought our idea for a summer concert series to these businesses and asked for their support, they stepped up and said "We're in!" Thank you so much for believing in Rockin' Robbins and the Willmar Rotary Club! We are so grateful for your support in helping us showcase the potential of our beautiful Robbins Island Park. More news on future improvements coming soon!
"I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank the Willmar Lakes Area community for what is turning out to be a heck of a good summer for our community. In my opinion, the summer of 2017 has made us feel like a community again.
When I reflect back on why I feel this way it’s because of projects that come to mind like the Willmar Destination Playground, Rockin' Robbins, Feed My Starving Children and Better Together for West Central Minnesota food packing events, premiere of the movie “Warehoused,” Taste of Downtown, new commercial, health care, industrial buildings and housing being built all over the city, new school buildings, elected officials’ community engagement and leadership, community education and involvement at the community center and the list goes on and on.
It is so exciting to see that when we have an event, hundreds of people are showing up, rolling up their sleeves and working next to their neighbors, regardless of their ethnic background, economic well-being, etc., but rather because it’s the right thing to do and it’s helping our community to continue to grow and prosper.
The Willmar Lakes Area is in a good place right now and the future looks even brighter. Your support, both volunteer-wise and financially, has been outstanding and has brought our community back together.
So many of the things that have happened, started with an idea, dream, or vision and then became a reality. True collaboration and partnerships are making this happen over and over again. The spark of leadership is caused by committed local people willing to risk failure to reach for success.
Remember, imagination costs nothing, but it sure can create opportunities. We are proof of that."
I attend Willmarfest every year and this year Rockin Robbins Chris Hawkey and I have to say Willmar throws the BEST FUN! Hats off to all the volunteers and workers who put this great stuff together!! Can't wait for 2018!!!
Perfectly said. All Willmar Area Residents have good reason to be proud.
