Andru Branch & Halfway Tree, 1997. Clockwise, from left to right: Andru Branch (vocals, keyboards, percussion), Tomaz "Moose" Jardim (rhythm guitar), David Wand (trumpet), Mike Goodridge (drums), Art Gold (trombone), Ras Kawintseb Sellasssie (lead guitar and backing vocals). Missing from this promo shot is Chris "Friendly Man" Hatton. He became a busy man with a budding career, playing with the band Culture Shock, featuring the massive bass and drum team of Nigel Murray and Gary Lowe. A significant challenge in leading a band is navigating band members' respective life changes, especially having to replace members along the path. Trumpeter David Wand stepped in to replace the super talented Bryden Baird, who became busy working with awesome Toronto acid jazz ensemble One Step Beyond. And you can see it in his eyes, as Ras Kawintseb was preparing to depart the band to repatriate back to Africa; specifically Shashamane, Ethiopia, shortly hereafter.
