LHS Band Video

Over the last month or so, I’ve been working on an archival project, putting all of my tape-based media on hard disk.

One of the gems I found was a VHS copy of the Lakewood High School Jazz Band and Wind Ensembles from 1989.

I’ve cut the video up so each song is a file, and they are presented in the order they were on the tape.

I’ve got a mullet in these videos. See if you can spot Jerry Wood and Andrew White!

This list is obviously incomplete. Camera coverage wasn’t available for the entire band. The yearbook from this year shows a list of people in marching band, but does not list the wind ensemble separately. There was a large cross-pollination between wind ensemble and marching band, but it wasn’t a 1:1 match. If you come upon this post and notice omissions or errors in the lists above, leave me corrections in the comments.
