The Tim Robbins Experience (T.R.E.) is named after a maritimer.
Tim Robbins was a student and an ok kinda guy who went to Halifax
West High School a few years ago. He grew up in bridgeview, a suburb,
quite close to where my grandmother lives. We went to the same
elementary school. We also played on the same house league team at the
centennial arena. I think the t.r.e. were named before the actor who
shares the name started getting plum roles.
if i was to start a similarly named band, i'd call it:
The Jim Nunn Experience
