Gallery: 33 photos of the crowd and the performance
How much richer are our summers since the arrival of Entertainment, Theatre & Culture 13 years ago? It’s tough to say goodbye to another season of music, but as soon as Saturday night’s season-ending show got under way at Lake Clementia Amphitheater, you knew the crowd of 1,100-plus was in for a good evening. There were pleasant temperatures, a full moon rising over the lake and Tainted Love bringing back the music of the ‘80s. The Bay Area-based band opened with Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Van Halen, Whitney Houston and John Mellencamp -- and the dance floor was positively jammed, the biggest dance turnout of the season. ETC also awarded its 2015 scholarship, $2,000, to Ajuney Hora, who won the group’s essay contest with a piece about the magic of music, especially fitting on this night.
