Mr. Griffith maintains an estate in Manteo on Roanoke Island, NC where he was a lead player in the outdoor drama "The Lost Colony" before he got his big break. A few years back, he endowed the Manteo High School Band with brand new tubas. I think it was 4 Miraphone BBb, but I'm not sure. If memory serves correctly, he has made this gesture several times in our state. He is a true Tar Heel, born & bred.
