Hey RNRI Family. Dingo is playing at Roni Golan’s gallery space (basement of Kuma’s on State Street in downtown ROCKFORD) on Jan 18 with Mick’s new project and another band. I am putting together a band to open the show. The idea is to have a series of guest vocalists sing 1 or 2 songs. If you know any kids from RNRI that would be good candidates lmk please. I also would take grown ups. they have to be good and want to perform. Thanks!!
This weekend we went to Festa Italiana to check out the bands that took part in the Rockford Rock and Roll Institute. It was very hot but spirits were high and I ran into a ton of cool people. I cannot remember all of the band names (hint, hint, if someone wants to put them in the comments), but the kids and adults put on a great show.
Thank you for looking at these pictures of Rockford. Get out, explore our city, and keep making Rockford a wonderful place to live.
There will be extra pictures on the RoR page.
