The fourth season of the Rockin' With Robert concert series kicks off tonight at the Robert Wadlow statue on the campus of the SIUE dental school. Typsy Gypsy will be the season's opening act, touting a six person ensemble that will play a mix of folk, rock, country and Motown favorites.

This year's line up also features Off the Shoulder on July 9th and The Five & Dimers will close out the season on August 13th.

Upper Alton Association Steering Committee chairperson Millie Hancock says don't require musicians and groups to audition prior to selecting them for the series.
