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. After moving to Tryon, he formed the Jim Peterman Quartet eight years ago.

Lodging is available in the area at The Wilcox on Melrose B&B, 1906 Pine Crest Inn B&B and the Days Inn.
