FFNL and El Rey

Published on: 8/2/2011

As expected the weather and crowds were great for Friday's fun. El Rey and the Nightbeats is one of the few bands people dance to and they were taking advantage. Broadway was totally and pleasantly clogged, as it was last year, and people were climbing every tree and lamp post just to get a glimpse of them. Well, maybe not that last part, but they're popular.

They've been around 54 years; that's four years longer than the Beach Boys! A nice touch to their varied set was, when it was through, each band member said something in appreciation to the crowd. They are from the Waukesha area and are always happy to see so many people enjoying themselves.

The next opportunity to hear El Rey will be 12:00 to 4:00 at Waukesha Old Car Club's show and rally at Frame Park Sunday Aug. 14th.
