  1. One of the first pros to bring his craft into our activity was Jack Bullock with the Geneva Appleknockers. His credentials include arranging a number of the Leroy Anderson chestnuts for LPs and the Boston Pops.
  2. I've used Finale heavily for two decades, but still have some tricks to learn. I need to notate some drumset stuff that has hundreds of rimshots requiring X noteheads. I use Speedy entry, with a MIDI keyboard and the number keys. But I'm hoping I don't have to change each one individually. How do you guys do it with corps snare parts ? (I do not need playback) TIA
  3. For a quarter of a century, 1952-1976, all the Kiltie music was written by just two men - Emil Pavlik and Mr. Norman.
  4. Throughout the history of the activity, nearly every streetbeat and drum section feature has been an original composition.
  5. VFW always had a mixed panel, and the judges wore their regular association uniforms. Sometimes with a little personalization. At '69 VFW in Philly, there were 2 CSJA judges in their B&Ws. But both of them were Irish. So Ed Morrissey (bugles) wore orange socks, and Bob Currie (drums) wore green socks.
  6. Marty's is non-comp and has seldom ventured out of the UP, although they recently have marched AL National Parades in Minny and Indy.
  7. Pat, there was a Midwest Senior Association from 1965-1969. The Maumee Demons won all 5 championships. other participants were: Kenosha Kingsmen Racine Boys of 76 Men of Brass Spirit of St. Louis St. Clair Shores MI Vanguards Fairborn OH Golden Lancers Chicago Zientek Diplomats MN Laidlaw Toreadors St. Peter Govenaires ... and who could forget the Hamms Indians?
  8. Just wondering, since I'm basically a horn guy - - - How does this cat stack up against our rudi aces? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpBNF6a-Ryc
  9. King mellos were all 2P. Although I built a 3P version last year, currently on loan to Bonnie Ott. Kanstul mellos are all 3P, except for the 2P sets built for the USMC Commandant's Own. Olds mellophones were all PR. One 2P prototype was shown at the 1977 DCI Congress.
  10. The Superior Indian Girls were legendary in 50s Kiltie lore.
  11. Rick Carpenter, who brought the Americanos back in 1980, claimed that there was a letter in the corps' archives from Post 199 asking permission to copy the Appleton S.A.L. uniforms. I assume the dingle ball look never flew in Hawthorne NJ. But one of these hats still survives. It is green.
  12. Something I unfortunately never got to do with the Kilties: I always wanted to spraypaint the bells blue after prelims. So when the horns came up at finals, there would be the Blue Bells of Scotland.
