Sadly, we don't know that much about what the Rock scene was like in the Western NC in the 1960s. It does seem like Rock & Roll was slow to come to the Mountains, with folk-pop and beach music bands ruling the roost. One group that straddled the folk-rock fence was the Ron-De-Voos, a popular band from Asheville. The group was popular for a number of years, and graduated from Lee Edwards High School in 1969.
Their sole single is definitely worth a listen. Here's both sides of their single, via the fantastic Spin The Groove blog. The A Side, "A Trip So Wild", can also be found on Youtube. Do you have more information about this band? Please drop us a line,
