It wasn’t just any ordinary day in Rockford, Ill on Friday November 5th, 2010 and that’s because country music icon George Jones was in town to make a rare appearance at one of Rockford’s most charming and historical venues, The Coronado Performing Arts Center for a sold-out performance. The theaters majestic structure and rich décor made the concert even more special on the beautiful brisk fall evening.
The show began with opening act Brittney Allyn backed by George’s band “The Jones Boys.” George’s band members possess an extraordinary talent for their instruments and their love for music and for George were clearly prominent during the entire show. I’d also like to point out an extremely talent young man named Billy who plays fiddle for Jones. Billy’s only twenty-five years old but his honed skills on the fiddle are absolutely remarkable!! more!
