On Friday afternoon at 3 PM the Upper Valley was witness to a new band, Billy Wylder. The guys took the stage at the 34th Annual Quechee Balloon Festival and treated the festival goers to some great music. Some folks recognized local favorite Avi Salloway (formerly of Avi and Celia and Hey Mama) on lead vocals and guitar. The guys played two 45 minute sets as the crowd grew steadily as the afternoon went on. The band will be in Charlotte, VT – The Moonshine at Solfresh Farm –Tickets tonight then on a break while Avi travels to the Middle East.

Catch this band if they come anywhere near you...their enthusiasm is infectious!

From the Billy Wylder website:
From the archaic streets of Jerusalem to the small towns of America and all along the way, music has been the thread and source of strength for Billy Wylder. The band features Avi Salloway from Hey Mama/Avi & Celia joined by a boot kick crew of musical vigilantes.

In the heat of the Arab Spring, Avi traveled to Israel and Palestine…
