“We were so happy with all of the things we did in the city, like Rockin’ the River as well as the Fine Arts Fiesta, that I told my team, ‘We need to put on a free concert with good music and a big name band so people can come out and have a great night.'”
Then, at 7:30 p.m., what countless of people had been waiting for all day happened: “Great time for Wilkes-Barre, Guess Who? #1,” said Mayor George Brown. Garry Peterson has been in The Guess Who since 1965, when the group was first put together.
