In Loving Memory

It is with heavy hearts WHEUPA share the passing of Jim “Papa” Banim on May 7, 2019.  The fearless leader of West High Entertainment unit for many years, his legacy still with us today.

The leader of the band is tired and his eyes are growing old
But his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soul
My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man
I’m just a living legacy to the leader of the band”
                                              Dan Fogelberg
