In 1974 he began working at Humber College North Campus as the Athletic Director and was also the hockey coach for the Humber Hawks, he later transferred to the Lakeshore Campus as Director of Student and Community Affairs and retired after 33 years at Humber to Minden.

Recollections of Peter “Zeke Zodiac” Maybury -- Rock star!

In 1964 – Newtonbrook high school buddies Bill McHardy, John Parkes, Steve McCullough, and Jim Walter were forming a rock band. What they needed was a lead singer. After considerable peer pressure Peter “Zeke Zodiac” Maybury was finally coerced into auditioning for the position. The audition went well--Zeke liked the experience and the band liked him! He was perfect for the role: good singer, a real showman and great front man for the band!

Rehearsals were in the Walter (Newton Drive) or Parkes' (Anita Circle) basement several times a week. It was rock and roll---and it was loud! Parents didn't seem to mind and surprisingly never complained.--Probably just happy knowing where their 16/17 year old sons were and what they were up to!

"The Henchmen" played their first gig in 1965 for a teen dance at St. Patrick's Anglican Church Hall. Fairly quickly things evolved to the point that "The Henchmen" were busy most weekends. Both Friday and Saturday nights the band was usually booked for either dances, coffee houses, or private parties. The band even made a few dollars here and there to pay for gas, equipment rentals, burgers at the Golden Star or Wimpey's, or pizza at Tony's. The band usually played 3 or 4 times a year for Newtonbrook school dances and developed a sizeable local following. Practices were 2 or 3 nights a week. These practices evolved into significant parties, with as many friends attending inside with the band as possible, and many others looking through the windows and listening outside. On many occasions band members had to agree on "closed" practice session dates in order to learn new material without the distraction of a party. What a blast!

1966---Steve McCullough moved away, and Peter Maybury (Zeke) was playing Junior hockey heading for the big leagues---no time for a band--"The Henchmen" needed a new drummer and singer! Enter NSS boys: Scott Ferguson drums and Steve Milton vocals. In short order "The Henchmen" were back in business and the band was working hard again.
Fairly soon after the start of the hockey season Zeke broke his leg. He showed up at a party the band was playing and again was coerced into singing. Zeke and Steve hit it off. Since his hockey season was shot Zeke returned to the band full time. "The Henchmen" music style shifted from rock and roll to more rhythm and blues/soul sound to accommodate the 2 singers. Bill McHardy moved from guitar to keyboards to fill out the sound with this new direction the band was taking musically. It seemed to work--"The Henchmen" were busier than ever--- locally---school dances, club 5090, coffee houses, battle of the band competitions etc.; even a few gigs out of town ie. Peterborough.

1968 graduation ended "The Henchmen" band, as everyone went their separate ways after high school.--but, what a time to remember---so much fun, so many dances, parties and friendships. It is safe to say, all the Henchmen would agree that it was an awesome ride while it lasted!

Condolences to the family---RIP Zeke.

Barb, my condolences to you and the family. Pete played an important role in my life; he helped me make the transition from hockey player to student, while having the opportunity to play for the Humber Hawks. His knowledge of the game combined with his positive attitude in life, made him a very successful coach. I not only enjoyed playing for Pete, but coaching with him as well. We had a lot of fun together over those years. Memories I will never forget. Rest In Peace Peter.
