  5. Empire Statesmen won high brass in 1990 and 1991. I have the recaps someplace. I recall it was Bob Zazzara that had a large spread on the field sheet.
  6. Saturday, August 29th, 4 or more Corps will parade in Roseto, PA. see link: http://www.columbiafireco.org/parade.html
  7. I'll miss ya "Foster". Condolences to his loved ones. The Martins
  8. Jeff, I did have the Naval Hymn on floppy!
  9. I've never marched or played in a marching band. I have been a marching band director for several, also done some arranging and instruction, but No marching. My dad Harvey, started in corps in 1937 and my mom Shirley, was a DM in the late 1940's were she met Harvey. I was born into corps, attending every practice and contest on the Grey Knights' schedule in the 50's. The Martin family combined, has been active well over 200 years in corps. Of the four brothers, three are currently still involved. Tim is on the executive board of the Carolina Crown, Garry is on the board of the Rochester Crusaders and I am the director/performer of the Hit Men Brass Band. I guess it's in the genes (blood) and not easily gotten rid of, anyway we love it!
  10. Regretfully, The Hit Men will not appear at the DCA I&E this year. All participants should be required to adhere to the competition rules. Contest administrators, in fairness to all involved, need to seriously investigate all rule infractions then follow up with the appropriate determination. These rules have not been taken serious or enforced in the past. Below is from the DCA I&E Rules. SECTION 7 - INDIVIDUAL AND ENSEMBLE COMPETITION GENERAL RULES AND PHILOSOPHY 1. All contestants must be a member of a past or present All Age Competitive Corps or active member of an Alumni Corps. In accordance to the rules, the 2008 Hit Men Brass Band are not eligible to compete due to one member's lack of participation in All Age/Alumni Corps. We wish all entrants great performances with the hope that this evenings event is conducted according to it's established rules. We look forward to entertaining you in the future. Have a Wonderful DCA weekend.
  11. Tony, Thank you for the kind words, although they are contrary to the dozens in the audience, who went out of their way to share positive accolades. BTW, have you ever heard of the musical terms: musicianship, tone quality, blend or balance? They are used to describe musical performances. Try using some of them when you write your second musical performance review. I'll bet you're a drummer! Where are you performing next? I'd love to come and listen. Well Tony, Happy 33rd Birthday...... Musically Yours, David Martin, Director The Hit Men Brass Band
  12. The Martin's Party Central is once again at the Royal Inn Rt. 96 at I90 Victor. Stop out and have a drink!
  13. Roy was a prince of a man. He always had time for everyone, even a 5 year old kid (me) back in 1955. He was a very close friend of the Martin's and we will miss him. Now Harvey has someone to play that little baritone with. God Bless Roy.
