Any concert series that opens with a performance by Crosby, Stills and Nash is not geared toward 20-somethings. The Eagle River Pavilion Concert Series offered shows by a whole host of classic acts: Michael McDonald, Yes, Styx, Whitesnake, ABBA, The Steve Miller Band and more. There were a few acts specifically for the nowhere-near middle-agers such as Atmosphere and even a performance by Trey McIntyre Project, a group that appeals to anyone in the 8 to 80 age group. But for the most part, this series was for the folks who were rocking their hardest in the '70s and '80s. The kids already had the downtown bar music scene; now the Baby Boomers have a place, too.
