The Orchard at Altapass is proud to announce ....   

Jerry, Mike & Bill Saturday, May 6th from 1:00 PM until 2:30 PM

 Bill Wygand never expected that he and a couple of high school band buddies would be playing music in the NC mountains after putting his old Charlotte Catholic High School band back together for his 50th anniversary class reunion.  Jerry Herbert and Mike Evans had so much fun with the reunion band that they decided to keep playing together with Bill, leaving the remainder of the band behind to play checkers in retirement.

The thing the guys most have in common is their love of music and the fun they have playing it.  Bill got his first drum set when he was nine.  He resides nearby in Spruce Pine.  Jerry, who does vocals and plays keyboard and harmonica, began playing piano at eight.  Jerry still lives and plays in the Charlotte area.  Also a Charlotte resident, Mike started playing his brother’s guitar at 15, and he has a vacation home in Mitchell County.  Jerry, Mike, and Bill (yes, that’s the name of the band) play a mix of pop, rock, and blues covers from the 50’s and 60’s, some earlier, some later, including Elvis, Muddy Waters, Ray Charles, Hank Williams, Fats Domino, and Carl Perkins, to name a few.  They always tell their audiences, “We don’t claim to be good, but nobody has more fun.”   Playing together since May 2017, they have had “more fun than folks our age should.”  You can connect with the band via email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
