When she attended Northview High School, she was a member of the color guard.
And nearly 20 years later, she's still performing.
Phyne is a member of the Jayne Bond Band and the Pink Martinis, serving as a back-up singer and dancer.
On Sunday, the group will entertain football enthusiasts.
The group will perform from 4-7:15 p.m., prior to the Indianapolis Colts 2008 season opener against the Chicago Bears at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The band will perform in the American Family Fan Zone, located outside of the stadium at the southeast corner near Capitol Avenue.
There is no admission fee to soak up the entertainment in the fun zone.
"There will be all kinds of activities for kids and adults to do," Phyne said.
"We perform all over the Midwest," she said. "We usually only do large corporate parties, but we usually do one or two Colts games a year."
Phyne is one of two back-up singers and dancers, who are known as the Martini Sisters. She performs under the stage name Vodka.
Phyne -- who was known as "Buffy" while at NHS -- graduated from Northview in 1987 and received a degree from Indiana State University in 1992. While at ISU, she was part of the cheer team.
She also received her master's degree from ISU in 1995.
Her mother, Diane Lawson, still lives in Brazil.
Currently, Phyne is the District Sales Manager for Ganz, a company based in Indianapolis.
Some of her customers include Brazil businesses Lynn's Pharmacy, Blue Moon Gifts, St. Vincent Clay Hospital gift shop and Yesterday's Treasures.
This is the only musical group Phyne has performed in. In fact, she was very hesitant to join.
She said a friend of hers saw the band perform and insisted they needed back-up singers and dancers. Her friend suggested to the band that Phyne should be with the group.
Phyne was not interested at first, but agreed to perform once with the group and was immediately hooked.
"When I got up there, it was as if all of it was coming back to me," Phyne said. "It was a part of me that I had been missing.
"After finishing my (master's degree), I didn't want to perform anymore. I just wanted to focus on my career. This kind of fell in my lap."
Phyne said the band performs 30-40 times each year.
"It's pretty much on the weekends," she said.
She added during the summer, the group performed for three days in Milwaukee and shared the stage with KC and The Sunshine Band, among other national acts.
Phyne said there are eight other band members. Some of them perform with other notable acts, such as Jenny DeVoe and John Mellencamp.
The band plays a wide variety of material, including songs by the Rolling Stones, Gwen Stefani, Elton John, Donna Summer, Fleetwood Mac, The Go-Go's, Jimmy Buffet and The Monkees.
Remaining members of the group include Jayne Bond on vocals, Bobby Stardust on keyboards, Armond Flint on bass, Whiskey Sauer on drums, Parker O'Dowd on guitar, Cuba Jones III on saxophone and another Martini Sister, Gin.
Phyne credited Northview Marching Band instructors Bob and Ruthann Medworth for her continued interest in performance.
"They're the reason why, at almost 40-years-old, I'm still performing," Phyne said. "The Medworths helped me, at a very young age, to balance so many aspects of my life. I can't thank them enough."
Even though the group has performed at Colts' functions many times before, Phyne said she'll get a thrill out of playing at Lucas Oil Stadium Sunday.
"It's an honor, definitely," she said. "It's always exciting to perform. You'd think after 10 years of being a band, it would lose its flavor. But it's an honor."
