Jim Peterman was the resident organist and pianist for the Steve Miller Band from mid-1967 until 1968, joining just ahead of their Fillmore gig backing Chuck Berry and their appearance at the Monterey Pop Festival. He played on two of their albums, Children of the Future and Sailor, before leaving the group when he grew tired of the constant touring necessary to support the band’s albums. After moving to Tryon, he formed the Jim Peterman Quartet eight years ago. The band features Peterman on piano, Mack McCloud on guitar, Moss Mack on saxophone, and Tim Blackwell on drums.
In addition to the generosity of the participating local restaurants, the CommUnity Coffee House Valentine’s Dance is also sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Carolina Foothills (UUFCF). For more information about UUFCF or to buy tickets, contact Robin Edgar at 828-513-0570.
