As headliners for the Ninth Annual Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival, Survivor rocked out to a crowd of thousands at J.F. Gregory Park.

The crowd loudly cheered as the band belted out numerous hits from their heyday in the 1980's. Vocalist Robin McAuley led an energetic assault with hits such as "I Can't Hold Back" and "High on You".

The tempo was brought down a bit for the rock ballad "The Search Is Over" which prompted an audience sing-along to the chorus. The set ended with an enthusiastic "Eye of the Tiger". As loud as the speakers were, McAuley's vocals could barely be heard over the crowd's enthusiastic response to the band's biggest hit.

As guitarist Frankie Sullivan strummed the last chord to the song, the stage lights dimmed and a fireworks display began bursting above the stage. An explosive end to the biggest night of the festival - a festival that has broken prior years' attendance records with an estimated attendance of 35,000 people throughout the weekend.
