    St. Rose Scarlet Lancers

    And we can't forget that Jim Wedge got his start as a member of their hornline.

    SCV's show was an epic musical fail.

    I guess all other corps wish they could musically fail so epically.

    best corps names

    There was also the failed experiment to call the corps from Seattle's Kennedy High School the Mouchoirs, which means tissue or handkerchief in French. Nobody knew how to pronounce the name, or what a Mouchoir was, so eventually the corps became the Continentals, and they lasted through 1979.

    best corps names

    In this case, Oblong is the name of a city in Illinois. There was a published photo of one of the corps' booster buttons in a 1950s drum corps magazine.

    Audubon bon bons

    The Bon Bons were magnificent at the 1957 American Legion National Championship in Atlantic City. They won top percussion, by almost a full point over the second best West Reading Cadets. They took top general effect, and took a close second in brass.

    Skip Prokop, R.I.P.

    This is sad news. Thanks for sharing. I've written about Skip in my DCW column, and always liked Lighthouse. (If you had a nickel for every corps that played "One Fine Morning" in the early 70s....)

    I think we can say that the three corps in the Santa Clara 50th anniversary season are FANTASTIC!!!
