William Perry (Bill) Zickafoose "Ziggy" September 15, 1922 - November 24, 2009

Long time leader of the big band, The Continentals, Bill Zickafoose passed away just before Thanksgiving.

I am so glad I got to meet Bill this past summer at Hermitage High School at a concert which turned out to be his last. The Continentals will again be playing at Hermitage High School on January 26, 2010 as a tribute to their leader.

He will be missed.

My previous post on The Continentals, and more photos.

  1. So sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. Never met him in person but his musical reputation preceded him. I toast his legacy.
