Captain Rat and the Blind Rivets

Great American Music, and a festival of fun-fun-fun for everyone! Specializing in American music of the 50’s and 60’s era like The Monkees, Elvis, Turtles, the Ventures, the band chooses the right song for each moment from a repertoire of over 400 vintage oldies - fast and slow songs from the greatest era in American popular music.

Based in Champaign, Illinois, since 1980, Captain Rat and the Blind Rivets is consistently voted best regional band.  They have brought their spectacular family-oriented show to more than a million people, in such venues as Wrigley and Soldier Fields, Memorial Stadium, the Chicago Air and Water Show, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena and Atlantis Paradise Island Resort and Casino in Nassau, Bahamas.

A picnic meal will be served from 5:30-7 p.m. The program is part of the festivities of EIU’s Family Weekend.
