Thanks to State Senator Jeff Klein, RiverFesters were treated to an awesome FREE concert this year at RiverFest from one of the world's most popular bands of all time!  State Senator Klein kicked off his annual summer concert series this year by bringing this great concert to RiverFest.  Lead singer and American Idol Runner Up - Bo Bice - really stole the show.  The whole band was incredible!
