What is Orpheon?
n. The nickname of drummer, Thomas Tierney and name of local Rutherford NJ band Orpheon. The nickname is derived as a joke from local single artist, Chris Reyes, better known as Kail. Thomas was recognized from Orpheon one day in gym class by Kail and the nickname was formed. The band long since broke up but the name stuck as a souvenir of the band and its local contributions...which were limited.
