I know I've mentioned this before in other threads.... but the Southern Tier Grenadiers from the Endicott, NY,  area were the real deal for a time there during the 1970s.

To date, one of the best drum corps horn lines, on a player-for-player basis, I've ever heard. Not big in size... mid-20s to maybe 30 horns, depending on the year.. .but those guys could flat-out bring it.  And they were tackling some pretty high-rent charts for a local-circuit corps.  Mouret's "Rondeau" (the theme from Masterpiece Theatre).... "Capriccio Espagnol"... music from the musical 1776... among other tunes. Great stuff.


The old Stratford 'Connecticut Yankees" may have competed in the old Red Carpet Association.
