Band Captain


H.S. yearbook nickname "Indian"
       A blast from the past.  From TFoTM's "Where Are They Now" file, we ask our readers if they can identify the band member in the picture to the right.  Can you identify the bandmate standing on the right, in the photo?  To save this photo and share with a friend, right click on the photo and save.

     In 1983, every fifth period in the fall, music could be heard echoing forth from a football field behind a local N.J. high school.

     Those responsible for these melodious sounds included one of Westfield's Finest. This "Band Captain" led his marching band to appearances in the annual Rutger's H.S. marching band competition as well as the David Brearley Marching Band Expo.

     Today, you might find this horn blower wearing another kind of uniform.  Although the hat is as important as the musical instrument in order to identify the band member, this "son of the sax" prefers not to muss his coiffure.

    
TFoTM would like to thank one of our readers for the photo submission.

    Bruce,

    Not every blog post will sit well with everyone. Your description of the post is your opinion and opinions are what this site looks to entice from it's readers.

    One day "Indian" might become "Chief".

    There are plenty of other hidden messages and underlying themes relevant to this picture.

  14. Dear Bruce
    Your opinion is yours and I respect it....however there are many people that will disagree with for many different reason.....I for one am not a fan of Mr. Wayman for many reasons....I worked with him in the PD for many years and his work ethic and practices were questionable at best......since you were willing to post your name I will so the same......

  17. A sgt had a conversation with his subordinate one day. During the conversation the patrolman told his supervisor that there were two kinds of cops in the department, cowards and clowns. The sgt asked the officer, "Well then, what group am I in?". The officer said, "You're a clown." The three ring circus will continue as long as P.T. Barnum is in charge. Better to be a clown than a coward.
