By Steve Prestegard editor@ Sixty years after what's been called southern Wisconsin's first rock 'n' roll band started playing, its founder and members of the band are holding a concert in Avoca Sunday. The band started by Vilas Craig of Richland Center was called the Kollege Kings when it was made up of members of the Richland Center High School band cornet section. What's being billed as Vilas Craig and the Nu ViCounts - besides Craig, Doug Bachelor of Fennimore on guitar, Roddy Dull of Boscobel on bass, Bill Becker of Mount Hope on piano, and Gordon Glass of Richland Center on drums - will perform a free concert at Legion Park in Avoca Sunday at 1 p.m.
