 Fond Memories of Bill from Bob Preyss


Bill was president of the band in ‘63, and a great trombone player.  I formed a Dixieland/ rock and roll band after H.S. We went to the World’s Fair in NY.  We played at the New York, New Jersey and RCA pavilions.  We made one of the first RCA color tapes – at that time “Bonanza” was the only TV show in color.  I remember people looking down from a catwalk to where we played.  Steve Shrell who was All State band was in it.  We had an excellent drummer and guitar player "Wipeout" from Ridgewood.  Can’t remember the others.  We were 17-18 years old.


We rehearsed in my basement – all the kids came around and looked in through the windows.  We were scheduled to play our first gig at a bowling alley near one of the malls – and the bowling alley burned down.


“I see so much magic though I missed it at the time.” [Jamie Collum].


B.Z. was our trombone player – so many years ago.

 I remember a real nice guy with a terrific musical talent. I pray that he is at peace now surrounded by all his loved ones of yesterday. May his family and friends continue to archive all the memories of his life forever.

God Bless,
