  1. With The Rochester Crusaders we had WAXER and Vince Bruni called everybody porkchop
  2. I have no idea what his contact info is BUT you may want to contact Ken Norman, Racine Wi. The last I knew he still has SOME parts
  3. The Brass Shop has been contacted by an older board member of a world class corps He is looking for 1 old style French horn Piston Rotor. If you have such an animal please contact the brass shop @ thebrassshop29@gmail.com or call my cell 608-770-1421 Thank you Paul Collins
  4. When The Brass Shop and Phantom Regiment were at the same shows DR.DAN always stopped to say hi and how are things going. What a gentleman and Corps supporter. He definitely will be missed. Paul Collins The brass Shop
  5. I was Just contacted by the Mandarins Drum Corps They have 3 used Quantum tubas available. $3500.00 each, SHIPPING NOT INCLUDED no mouthpieces and they have cases. These horns are in excellent condition and well maintained and cared for. Contact the brass shop brassshop29@gmail.com or call cell 608-770-1421.

  6. Being in the parking lots for 29 years repairing instruments I have seen this activity grow from 2 busses 1 truck and a food wagon of sorts. 1oo members plus staff and volunteers of approx. another 15 (115) to 150 members plus up to 50 staff and volunteers (200 and more) also Corps today run 3 and 4 busses plus Staff busses 2 or 3, 3 and 4 trailers, 1 or 2 box trucks, vans and chase vehicles is one huge undertaking. I hear of budgets from $900,000.00 to almost 3million. The first show this year there was a small issue getting everybody in the lot that was just 6 corps, and they filled it. This has not been a mom and pop organization for years, it's year round with offices , storage , rehersal facilities. office staffs from 3 to 8 or 9. This is Large business folks. I know what I spend just for Fuel for a 13000 mile 40 show tour , 1 vehicle roughly 60 days runs between 2300.00 and 2600.00 Figure what fuel costs are for busses 5 to 6 mpg , tractor trailers,maybee 8mpg, box trucks etc do 10,000 miles and 25 shows. I believe a lot of people could live very well on what it costs just for fuel. NOT a joke a corps 5 yrs ago fueled everything at once 3 busses 2 tractor trailers staff vehicles, etc well there goes $20,000.
  7. Saw 2 runs sat nite and sun nite. of course sun better than sat. They are already pushing, great program, corps working very hard, I think folks will be very surprised
  8. all I know is he lives in the Racine wisc. area

  11. Really Keith Rochester has lost the Corps, Kodak, Xerox, and others. My last trip home to Rochester was disappointing to say the least. There's nothing left the economy is way down, and winters are still brutal. I left to move the Brass Shop to the Midwest and now NC. You need to go and see for yourself Paul The Brass Shop
  12. You get what you pay for, My nephew is a graphic artist he told one of his customers if you want cheap, go that way and you get what you pay for
