  • Millsboro's Cupola Park looked more like a dance floor on Sunday evening as couples boogied during the Jones Boys' concert, a performance that put a bow on the Concerts in the Park series in Cupola for this summer.
    Some carefree seniors cut a rug with their significant others in front of the stage while the Jones Boys duo played an evening of mostly cover tunes. The Jones Boys, which has performed at Cupola Park the last four years, tackled songs from George Jones to Travis Tritt, with a little classic rock and doo-wop sprinkled in between. Those who didn't dance sat comfortably in lawn chairs with their friends and family, soaking up the music and sun on the gorgeous day.
    "I love their music," said Ann Couch, 76, of Georgetown. "We have been following them for a couple months."
    The Jones Boys, based in Seaford, earned at least two new fans at the concert. To sweeten the pot, the new fans weren't originally thrilled about going to the show.
    "I had to come," said 11-year-old Trent Hoffer, whose grandmother, Lynne, kindly brought him to the concert. Before knowing he'd like the duo, Hoffer decided to bring his pal Colby Reppert with him to ensure a good time.
    After listening to a couple of Jones Boys covers, Colby said, "I think they're pretty descent. So does Trent. I really like them."
    The Jones Boys had a fun time returning to Cupola Park, as well.
    "I thought it was great," said Jones Boys guitarist Junior Bradley, of Bridgeville. "I think this is a great thing the town is doing."
    Jones Boys frontman and keyboardist Darren Jones can't help but enjoy gigging at Cupola Park thanks to its lovely location.
    "It's just a beautiful park," said Jones, who resides in Seaford. "It has beautiful scenery surrounded by water. It's just nice."
    While the Jones Boys headlined the show, the other attraction was Phil "Boo" Leverman. Boo, named after his late childhood pony named Boo Boo, naturally drew stares due to his bald head, which is completely covered in tattoos depicting dozens of cartoon characters, most of which are from "Looney Tunes." He actually has an illustration of Sylvester chasing Tweety Bird on the back of his head.
    The tattoos started eight years ago when Boo cut his hair.
    "I was in the gym one day and I shaved my head," said Boo, a native of Philadelphia, Pa., who moved to Millsboro nine months ago. "I said, I don't want no plain bald head because I wanted something different and unique."
