Abba Cover Band at Gallo in Modesto

As you know from Darcy's post we were in Modesto last weekend.  You saw the pictures from when we saw family, but didn't see pictures from Saturday night when we attended Picnic at the Pops, Sean and all.


Modesto Bee article here.

Picnic at the Pops is a yearly event put on by Gallo as a fund raiser for the Modesto Symphony. Darcy's parents partake in this big event every year.  Last year the theme was "Beatlemania" as the symphony performed with a Beatles Cover band.  This year it was an Abba tribute band out of Finland that made the trip halfway around the world to entertain the Central Valley.  Much to my surprise they opened up their set with Dancing Queen (I thought they'd leave it til the end).

As this song was playing Sean was alert and happy, so I video taped him as well as catching a shot of the stage, of Darcy, and of the scene.  The video is over two minutes so I won't hold it against you if you don't have time to watch it, but if you can find the time, enjoy!
