Check out the Osmond Post Cadets (PA) website or Holy Name/Garfield Alumni site ... I think they both have St. Joe's info under "worth competitors" from that era ... or, you could always reach out to Harry Hazelwood who played there prior to them breaking up ...

Just made me think of Newark The Drum Corps City of:

Blessed Sacrament "Golden Knights"

"St, Lucy's Cadets"

"Woodsiders"

St. Joe's (Cadets) Ironbound

St, Rose of Lima "Imperial Lancers"

They could hold a 5 Corps contest, and not even have one from out of town.

Plus St Martin's Troubadors, a GSC corps I competed against in 68/69.

Andy,

Wasn't Tommy Martin connected with them as well? I seem to recall him mentioning St. Joe's in that regard.

Yes. Mr. M was definitely in St. Joe's along with Harry, Swan, JoJo and PeeWee Todaro, Genero, Cluna, and a host of other ultra talented players ... taught by none other than Hy Dreitzer
