New wave band Berlin performed at the lodge on Saturday to a sold out audience. The band had the crowd on their feet and singing along to their popular 80s hits during most of the concert. The set list included Berlin’s classic “No More Words” and their best selling single “Take My Breath Away.” They closed the show with a rendition of AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell.”

In honor of Terri’s birthday, the crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to her and a few fans presented her with cards and flowers.

Local entertainer and Canyon Lake resident Aprile DeAnne opened the show. “Opening for one of my favorite bands from my teenage years is an honor,” said Aprile. Aprile’s set list included songs from Journey, Pat Benatar and Madonna.
