- I seen this movie..I saw a lot of old friends that I grew up with as... well..Even though I did not go to Kashmere High School,I knew some of the band members there..I went to Jack Yates High School and played in the T.O.P. (Tower Of Power) Marching and Stage Bands there which Our Band Director Melvin Dismuke who is feature in Thundersoul as a Trumpet player..He also was shown with his French horn that he loved dearly from time to time..Mr. Melvin Dismuke taught music at Yates during around 72-77..He had the Yates Stage band going on the same fire with Kashmere..Like in Thundersoul..the School Districts had an issue with doing right by these men who were teaching music to us kids by cutting funding..I remember not even having band uniforms and the fund raisers to try to get them..other schools was changing out uniforms almost every other year but it seemed like the black schools never seemed to have enough money to fund the music program..Mr. Dismuke taught me how to write and compose music and often talked to me about Kashmere's music department..I just happened to live on the other side of town and did not make it to Kashmere..I did make it to listen to them from time to time to get ideas..But just to say that I was so happy to see my music teacher in the movie Thundersoul playing his Trumpet and French horn made me proud just to see him do what "Prof" may have taught him..May Melvin Dismuke R.I.P. as well as I found out very late..May both of their teachings live on to all the music men and women that crossed their paths..Gregg Winfrey
