Chip Messiner, Janel Nelson, and Ron Holm pay musical tribute to three larger-than-life characters: Glen Campbell, Tanya Tucker, and Roy Orbison.
John Bishoff adds lead guitar and harmony vocals; Doyle Miller adds drums. Janel selects from over a dozen instruments to provide accompaniment. Chip and Ron round out the sound with bass and acoustic guitars.
Doors open at 2 pm, and the concert runs from 3 – 5 PM. The location is Spring Creek Church, 4500 Spring Creek Rd, Rockford. Attendance is limited to 150 listeners. Walk-in seating will be available until the attendance limit is reached.
Admission is free; listeners are encouraged to make a $10 free-will donation during the concert, with funds collected used to pay the musicians and help to defray the church's event hosting costs. This program has attracted a large audience in the past, and those who wish guaranteed seating regardless of what time they arrive may make an online advanced donation in the form of a $6 ticket at https://www.springcreekucc.org/concerts.
