Instruments: Trumpet, Trombone details
A quote about the BAPCO Paint Band, "In addition to Bob (no vocals incidentally; later he added vibraphone) and I (trumpet by the way; later valve trombone) the original group got together to play for a Christmas party. The musicians for that entertainment included Don Beale (trombone), Jack Okell (alto sax), Terry Budd (possibly on drums; Terry played with Bob and I later) and possibly others. As I recall, it was a pretty ragtag sound that came out of us, but it gave us a start locally.
At one time we toyed with the idea of changing the name of the group to The Laurel Point Salon Group, which seemed appropriate, but nothing came of that.
Bob and I gigged a lot of places over the subsequent years; primarily we were house band at the Victoria Golf Club once a month or so. A fine addition for several years was vocalist Gina Mayes, who was BAPCO's receptionist, and who contributed very much to the sound of the orchestra." Quote from Peter Thompson
