Theodore Weston, Jr. better known in Texas as “Casper” was a native of Morristown, Tennessee.  He started showing interest in music at an early age as most, and started playing drums at the age of 7 years old for his church choir at Faith Temple C.O.G.I.C.  In Jr. High School, Casper experienced his first recording with a gospel quartet group called “The Sensational Stars”.

 

After high school, Casper attended Morristown College in his hometown of Morristown, Tennessee and it was obvious that his music abilities stood out and in no way could his abilities be overlooked by Music Professors. He received a Music Scholarship to relocate to Texas to attend Texas College as a Music Major - the rest was history.

 

As a student at Texas College, Casper began playing with several churches in the city:  he played bass for Texas College Choir, North Star Baptist Church, piano for True Vine Baptist Church and later became the Bass Player at New Jerusalem Baptist Church where he remained as their Bass Player for more 25 years (until death)

 

Making Tyler his home, Casper also began playing guitar and/or bass with several different groups such as Night Deposit, Tin Man, Dorsey Summerfield & The Polyphonics, East Texas All Stars, and made opening appearances on stage with The Platters, Bobby Blue Bland, Tom Brown and with Faber & Friends  he had the opportunity to open for Al Jarreau.

 

Casper started playing with Faber & Friends Band in the mid 90’s until death.
