You might have raised your eyebrows if you opened social media and saw videos of the Jonas Brothers jamming out to a crowd at James Madison University.
After all, the band of brothers is currently touring across 18 nations and has a schedule of 40 upcoming concerts. So, shouldn’t they be busy with that?
How did they end up at the JMU, Virginia?
Jonas Brothers performed at the James Madison University (JMU) in Harrisonburg, VA, on Saturday morning of Week 12 of College Game Day. They showed up for the concert with Bailey Zimmerman, who made her debut. The match will be between the unbeaten James Madison Dukes and the Appalachian State Mountaineers.
Why Were The Jonas Brothers at The James Madison University?
Jonas Brothers were at the James Madison University for College Game Day week 12. Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, and Nick Jonas belted out some of their best tracks with Bailey Zimmerman, who had her debut with the song Strong Enough.
Notably, they performed for free on a Saturday morning this weekend. So either they got paid a lot to perform, or the platform was big enough from a promotional standpoint. As such, they couldn’t pass it up.
JMU also showed up for the performance, even though there was a mixed reaction from the fans. Many wondered why the brothers were there all of a sudden, while others were glad for the concert since their team wouldn’t be eligible for a bowl game due to an NCAA rule.
That’s not all.
The Jonas Brothers also had a few drinks with fans and collegegoers. On Friday night, they hit up Billy Jack’s Shack, one of the best bars in the city, and had a blast with the patrons with some beers.
They even paid a round for everyone there. Some reported that they were bartenders for a hot second and served everyone drinks. As a result, they made some more instant fans who found that the Brothers were pretty chill.
However, they also drew some criticism.
Some people alleged that the entire performance, plus hanging out with the fans at a bar and paying for their drinks, was just an attempt to get positive PR for Joe Jonas. After all, he is currently in the midst of a messy divorce from Sophie Turner.
The week 12 clash is between James Madison Dukes and the Appalachian State Mountaineers. The Dukes have made many focus their attention on them thanks to their unbeaten season record of 10-0.
However, they are still not eligible for a bowl game or the Sun Belt title because of a rule that prohibits them due to being in the first year of their 2-year transition period.
On the other hand, the Mountaineers have won three games one after the other, and they will be looking to continue that record.
Do you think that the Jonas Brothers can show up anywhere else for a quick college concert? What did you think of this surprise performance?
