My Experience In "Leader Of The Band".
16 April 1999 | by (Atlanta, Georgia USA) – See all my reviews

In November, 1986, I was proud to be in the final part of this great movie-"Leader Of The Band". I was "very plump" in those days and was dressed in my "Henry Grady High School Band Booster Look", which consisted of an official T-shirt, jeans, shakers, painter's cap and sneakers. If you watch the movie, look for me real hard, because the final scene was filmed at Grady Stadium here in Atlanta, Georgia USA and listen for my cute, squeeky voice saying that immortal line: "What's Going On here?!? What's Going On?!?" Betsy Goodrich is the actress and singer who currently plays the role of Danger Woman, The Karaoke Crimefighter. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia, USA
