    Eddie Money entertains the crowd during a concert at the Travelers Championship Wednesday.

    The rain may have spoiled part of the day during the Celebrity Pro-am at the Travelers Championship Wednesday, but it didn't do much to deter the crowd from turning out to see Eddie Money perform.

    Money, who played the the rain-shortened pro-am Wednesday, took the stage in the Travelers Championship fan zone around 7:30 p.m. and treated fans to hits including, "Baby Hold On", "Take Me Home Tonight" and "Two Tickets to Paradise".

    The rocker was joined on stage by former NFL star Doug Flutie and then by ESPN's Chris Berman, who added his famous "Back...back...back...back" to Money's hit, "I Wanna Go Back".

    Earlier in the day, singer Michael Bolton, actor Joe Pesci, Celtics star Ray Allen and UConn Head Coach Jim Calhoun got in some golf while dodging raindrops.
