Several hundred people spread out on the manicured lawn at Elgin's Wing Park Tuesday evening as rhythm and blues band R Gang performed as part of the Concert in the Park series.
The Chicago-based quintet continued to play hits of the 70s as people danced among the folding lawn chairs.
"We love this," said Dottie Schmitz of South Elgin, as she and husband John rested after dancing. "We come here all the time."
Popcorn and drinks were available to buy from Friends of Lords Park Zoo at the edge of the venue.
"This is a great crowd," said Bill Rodriguez, who helped groom the park as part of his job with the City of Elgin Public Works Department.
The next Concert in the Park is July 8 and features the New Invaders, a Chicago area band that plays 1960s-era British rock and roll.
