A resident of Hayesville, NC, Bill Rinaldo, is an entertainer, and retired PGA golf professional. In 2006, he won the “Brighthouse TV Senior Idol” competition in central Florida and went on to become the shows MC each year since.
He has been the opening act for BJ Thomas, Andy Andrews, Jay Johnson and more, has performed at numerous venues in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas and even sang the Star Spangled Banner to open the NBA’s nationally televised Orlando Magic game on January 27, 2009 and again at the Tampa Lightning NHL hockey game the next year.
Since he retired, he has a lot more time to hunt, fish, do shows and all the other things he loves. He is sure to provide us with an entertaining evening. Bill is a new performer for us and we hope you will give him a warm welcome!
Jonah Riddle and the Carolina Express
Saturday, June 25, 7pm
From the hills of WNC, two brothers set out to show the world their brand of bluegrass music, as so many brother duets have done before them. Jonah grew up playing gospel bluegrass in their church services. From the very beginning the brothers clung to the roots of the music.
Jonah has been playing the banjo since he was a teen. From the first time he picked up the instrument, he fell in love!
Grayson, plays guitar and does vocals. He has been playing guitar since he was only 5 years old. Their dad, Benjie Riddle, plays the upright bass.
As always, thank you for your support!
Your Brasstown Bell Crier,
