The history of the Westshoremen

Recommended Posts

Heh... 1981 and '82, we had an exhibition around July 4th weekend. We were hired by publisher/Mets owner Nelson Doubleday to play at a country club on Long Island.... he either owned the club or was a member, and it was basically a cookout/party for his friends.

We did our full drill down on a field, while all the rich muckity-mucks were up on the hill watching us. Most, if not all of them, were drunk. :tongue: So basically, they had no idea what was going on below. And we took full advantage of that, screwing around when we could get away with it during the performance. I seem to remember at least a couple of our horn players switching drill spots, stuff like that. LOL.

Whatever ... it was a nice paycheck for the corps!!!

You going to tell the room what Dave did? Or does that stay in the vault...lol

It's a different era, guys.

Some of the "back in the day" stuff is best left for private consumption. Moving on.

Yeah, I have.

But no more... not on a public forum.

Don't mean to sound like such a grump....LOL....

But... I figure since Sun still has an active corps, and they are trying to grow their organization, some of the "war stories" from that corps' days gone by, in a public forum, are probably not helpful.
