A high octane, premium-fueled performance greeted a packed outdoor venue of eager music fans at the Jackson Rancheria Sept. 13. as Champagne, Illinois-based classic rock band REO Speedwagon took the stage just after 8 p.m. and tore the house down.

Iconic lead singer Kevin Cronin, who has fronted the band since 1972 and sings all of their major 70s and 80s hits, was a bubbly, grinning, guitar-playing dervish, despite having an injury that caused him to need to use crutches to get to a stool at center stage.
