Jim Peterman has been playing the keyboard since high school and has enjoyed a long career. He was a founding member of The Steve Miller Band, played the Monterrey Pop Festival and recorded a live album with Chuck Berry. In 1994, Peterman left Wisconsin’s cold winters behind and has been playing music around the Foothills ever since.

Peterman and his signature Hammond B3 organ will perform at Chase Away the Blues with other regional musicians, filling three venues at Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) for a night of non-stop music and dancing from 5:30 to 11 p.m.

The sixth annual Chase Away the Blues also includes headliner Mac Arnold and Plate Full O’ Blues, Brandon Turner and Freddie Vanderford, Shane Pruitt and Tuesday’s Sermon and Daryle Ryce. Stay until the end of the evening for a jam session, featuring all these talented musicians playing together on the Main Stage.
