The Sopchoppy Opry

Alrighty. We are tickled pink to be invited to perform at The Sopchoppy Opry!! Lon and I will be joined by Rick Kuncicky to do a country and swing set of music. 

Also performing will be Michelle Milligan and Bobby Kennedy of the award-winning band, Southern Satisfaction. 

Michelle and Bobby truly love playing and singing their favorite country, pop and jazz standards.  Their talent is evident in Michelle’s rich, full singing voice and Bobby’s great guitar style.  Two finer musicians performing together cannot be found anywhere.  They are a pure joy to watch perform with their singing, playing and just the entertainment value that comes with their performances.

The show will be catered by Family Coastal Restaurant.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or by calling Jesse Quigg at 850-962-3711.

  1. Foreign "Swing Mandolin Jockey" desires to play in trio. Have instrument, will travel to USA.

  2. Mrs. Williamson is one of the finest vocalists you will ever hear. I feel that she is missing a chance to really step out and should think about working with a hot guitarist who also has strong vocals, like James Quine for instance.
