  • [Pictures] Searching for Pictures - DL Sax Quintet 1980-1994

    Hi! I am married to a member of the old Disneyland Main Street Sax Quintet. He doesn't have many photos of him playing at the park. I was wondering whether anyone had any pix of the quintet from between 1980 and 1994 that they are willing to email to me, so I can create a scrapbook for him as a surprise. I'm not at all picky about composition, quality, etc. - something grainy is better than nothing at all, IMO.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance!!

    I have home video from July 1985 (same trip as my avatar pic). I may be able to pull a screen grab from it (I transfered it to DVD a couple of years ago). I'll see what I can do.

            Hakuna - the band you posted is from WDW, and hubby played at Disneyland proper. Same idea, but different coast and different guys.

                    Sorry, I had a look around and I didn't make a copy of the DVDs (which were a gift for my parents), so they are in Atlanta while I am in California. I can try and get a copy shipped to me, but it might take a little more time.

                      Datameister: You are aware that imageshack is sending pop-unders with their photos, right? Not cool, guys...

                      I will have to go through the stacks of Kodachrome slides we have from the 60's, and prints from the 70's & 80's, and see what I can come up with.

                        Thanks a bunch, SilentDante, but I really don't want you to go to any expense or trouble. I was just taking a shot in the dark that someone might have some handy somewhere.

                          She don't know us very well, do she? :lol:

                          Don't worry about Dante, that explanation sounds like he left out a second sentence: "I'd better have Dad make 'Insurance Copies' and ship them to two or three relatives, so in case something unfortunate happens to the original the data is safe."

                          Keep this thread alive about once a week, and see what happens. This is an easy way to rattle a whole lotta cages with one shake. Everyone who responds or subscribes to the thread gets an E-mail when a new post goes up.

                          And if you have any luck, put the photos up here (linked to a Photobucket or Flickr or personal webpage account) so we know who we're looking for - and what size sax he's playing. Or just a photo from that time period so we can compare faces.

                          There are people who used to burn up 10 or more rolls of film on a Disneyland trip snapping anything that looked interesting to them - and I'll bet there's some old paydirt out there in an album or box of slides. Perhaps one of mine, or Dad's...

                          Have you tried calling the Park Publicity Dept.? Or the Disney Archives in Burbank, Attn: Dave Smith? If there is a department that knows where all the old Disneyland publicity photos are buried, sorted by subject and year, they will.

                          Disney sends out CM photographers regularly with the specific assignment to capture things like that, Portrait Quality. Because they never knew what a newspaper was liable to call up and want publicity photos of.

                            Actually, Bruce, the sentence I left out was, "I made copies for the whole family, but forgot to make one for myself."

                              Wow- you guys are great, and extremely helpful. BTW - hubby played baritone sax - second largest in the group. I'm definitely going to try Bruce's suggestions about the archives and the Park.

                              Great pic with Rod, Bruce - I do miss his playing at Coke Corner. My 3 y/o son won't listen to the guy who plays now, but I bet I could have gotten him to listen to Rod.
