Spring is here, and you know what that means - or maybe you don't: The Ragtime Willi Band will be turning 40 years old. Yes, The Ragtime Willi Band, then known as Ragtime Willi's Inflatable Band, played its first-ever gig in the spring of 1977 - 40 years ago.


To celebrate, RWB is kicking off its 40th birthday tour this Friday evening with a show at the Thorn Hill Vineyards Tasting Room in Lancaster, to be followed by a show on Saturday at Mike's Tavern in Reading, to be followed by still more shows leading up to our official 40th birthday bash later this spring at a venue yet to be revealed.


So come join us this Friday evening at Thorn Hill Vineyards Tasting Room on the Fruitville Pike just north of Lancaster. Sip some wonderful Thorn Hill wines and treat yourself to a Thorn Hill cheese plate, the perfect accompaniment to fine wine and three hours of funky-folk tunes, starting at 7 p.m. Then join us Saturday night at Mike's Tavern in Reading, known for its great beer selection and down-home atmosphere. Music starts at 8 and goes until 11.
