The Hegeman String Band announced on their Facebook page the passing of their former captain John Pignotti Jr. John Pignotti was captain of Hegeman String Band from 1986-2000. He won first prize captain twice (1995 and 1997) and led Hegeman to two first prize finishes in 1992 and 1995. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hegeman String Band and John’s family!
I knew John had left our Hegeman Band but I did not know he had gotten his wings in March. Usually, my blood Hegeman’s keep me informed and possible did but march was not a good month for me. I was saddened today when I heard about John after the new combined band marched. Bless all of them.
God bless the Hegeman string band
