Coyote Bones performs live at College Hill’s Second Sunday

The last Second Sunday of the year occurred on Oct. 14 from 1-3 p.m. in Washington Park. Coyote Bones, a band originating from Atlanta, came out and played for a large audience made up of families, community members and students.
Many people who came to Second Sunday had attended others in the past. A mother named Heather Harris went to this Second Sunday with her husband, Anthony Harris and their children.
Heather is originally from Macon and said, “We used to live on Cherry Street and come out to [Washington Park] all the time.”
Heather and Anthony have two children named Max and Elizabeth, and a pet rat named Oreo. All of them, including Oreo, attended Second Sunday.
Two friends, Caitlin Roberts and Katie Boniol hadn’t heard much about the band Coyote Bones, but still enjoyed the overall atmosphere.
“I looked them up because I heard they were going to be playing so I listened on Youtube,” Roberts explained. Both Roberts and Boniol are from the Macon area.
Boniol had never been to a Second Sunday before. Boniol said, “I like the atmosphere.”
Even if the band is not well known, people seem to still be drawn to Second Sunday for the social aspects and ambience.
Keith and Linda Ryals, a couple from Macon have been to several Second Sunday events in the past. “We love being in the park and seeing the people,” Linda Ryals said. “It’s for families, it’s great to see the kids having a good time,” Keith Ryals added.
The Ryals brought their dog, Dakota along with them. The Ryals family usually brings Dakota with them for every Second Sunday event.
