I used to participate in the Minstrel Show in, I'd say 1959, 1960 or thereabouts. Good memories since that what we have at the end - Chuck Gricus, Sat, 22 Mar 2014 6:53AM
The best years of my life. I started working with the drum line when the corps was in class C and saw them grow and improve and become fine young men and women. I have some CDs of the corps, World Open finishing 2nd and 5the and then through 1975. I would like to hear the Bluereries year. - joe lyons, Mon, 28 Oct 2013 11:15AM
I marched with IC from 57-62 and it was some of the best years I've ever had. I miss the camaraderie and the guys and gals I marched with .I was a snare drummer.I miss drumming. - Charlie Boncore, Sat, 7 Sep 2013 9:33AM
Marched with the Reveries from 1965 through 1967. Loved every minute of it. Most "Revered" memory is sitting on the starting line at Roosevelt Stadium in NJ during the 1966 VFW Nationals. - John "Max" Maxner , Tue, 22 Jan 2013 8:30AM
AS one of only two non-Catholic members I cherish the many wonderful memories of marching with the Reveries - especially when they showed up on our wedding day to perform a concert outside the church - a surprise arranged by the man himself, George Bonfiglio - Ronald K. Olson, Thu, 13 Oct 2011 6:55PM

Another year gone by, another walk down memory lane.
Steve - Michael and I had so much fun going down memory lane this dreary afternoon. It was great seeing pictures of the old Reveries. I have memories of several of you coming to our house in Saugus for one of Michael and Marla's parties (ok and Eddie DeAngelis had something to do with them too). Ahhhh the good old days.....thanks for sharing! Love to Cheryl!! - Judi (Dodge) Doherty, Sun, 15 Jun 2008 1:37PM

Thanks for the memories Steve. It was a great trip. I will always remember those years fondly. As a bonus, I found my dad, long deceased now, in picture 182 of the Statesmen Jr. He's the one wearing the jacket. Thanks again. - John McAvoy, Fri, 2 Mar 2007 1:07PM
Almost joining the Corp in 1971 after many years in a CYO Band, only to run into "release" problems, my dream of marching in Drum Corp came true in 1974 with the IC Reveries. The Delorey's thankfully, never gave up on me. You all were terrific...it is amazing how real it all still seems. Still in a Drum Corp state of mind! Love the memory lane photo's! - Joey Dalessio, Fri, 22 Dec 2006 5:19PM

WOW! Many memories. I was part of the 60's Senior corps and one of the originals bugle quartet that played for the colour guard competions with the Foleys twins and Jim McLeavey. Ah the good old days. - Jim Traverse, Wed, 10 Aug 2005 9:39AM

I had the time of my life. thanks for the memories it seems like it was just yesterday. row on - cllyde Jordan, Sun, 20 Feb 2005 9:08AM
Mr Reilly was nothing less to me than the Father I never had. His instruction and warmth gave me a safe haven wherein which to grow and experiment. There was never any doubt that he loved all of us and believed in us even though he was a very good disciplinarian and instructor, who maintained a standard of excellence. I can not imagine what my life would have been like without his gentleness and sense of humor. I thank God for role models such as Mr and Mrs. Reilly who have dedicated their time and attention to so many young people over the years. His memory will continue to inspire me to give all of who I am in the same unselfish manner. Grace and peace for all those he leaves behind. Cynthia - Cyndi (Anderson) Samuel, Fri, 31 Dec 2004 2:35PM
Arthur Reilly gave me my start in instructing...I will forever be greatful to all the help he gave me...He was always my friend....My prayers are with this wonderful family... - Donn Ebert, Thu, 30 Dec 2004 2:51AM

24 1964 Drumfest Drumfest was a late winter indoor show that at the time was held at the Boston Arena. It had several mostly local Class A corps and several senior DCA corps. It was a judged event and was a big deal at the time as it showcased the upcoming season. The caption is incorrect as Vin Cowhig is on the right. A few of us former junior corps members had Vin as a teacher years later while we attended Jr. High at the McKinley School in Revere. We were completely wigged out to have a former senior corps drum major as a teacher. He was a great guy.

28 June 14, 1964 Drum Corps News - June 17, 1964 issue
29 1964 Program Book The Reveries were in both CYO and Eastern Mass so the corps was obligated to sponsor a show for each circuit once every two years. 1964 was an Eastern Mass year. The show was always at Paul Revere (Harry Dellarusso) Stadium in Revere and always on the third Wednesday in June at night right after the schools let out for the summer. Even though CYO insisted on afternoon shows, the Reveries got an exemption as did a few other units. Selling advertising in the program books was a major revenue stream for the corps for the life of the corps. Local people and businesses were always very generous to the corps in this regard and the corps would not have been able to exist without this financial support.

40 1965 BOOSTER AUTOGRAPHS This is the back of the 1965 booster. It seems most of the corps and staff autographed this. There are several drum corps legends represented here. Some are no longer with us.
42 1960's Button
43 Senior Corps Uniform Jacket These were the uniform jackets worn by the senior corps. This example has the citation cord and the epaulets. The white Velcro held the cummerbund.
44 Senior Corps Uniform Jacket This is another example of the senior corps jacket but without the epaulets. At some point, they were removed. Photos of the corps in action will have to be studied to determine when that occurred. I suspect some got lost and the cost of replacement was prohibitive so they were all removed to maintain uniformity at inspections.
45 Senior Corps Uniform Jacket This example has a citation cord and displays how the cummerbund was worn. There are no epaulets with this example.
46 Junior Corps Tunic The junior corps changed the uniform and colors after I think the 1964 season. They went from blue and gold to red, white and blue. The pants may have been the same but these "clown shirts" as we called them were a big change. They are satin and were hot as Hell at all times.
47 Junior Corps Jacket This is a staff jacket, in this case, a quartermaster. This jacket was given to me by Jim "Buz" Walsh. He stuck it out with the corps long after his daughter left with the senior corps. He even stuck it out with North Star for a number of years. The patch commemorates the Junior Corps winning the local circuit championships during the early 1960's. I added the soprano pin and wear this jacket even today.
48 1960's Championship Patch In some respects, the junior corps had greater success in winning circuit championships than did the senior corps. Of course, in the 1960's the local Boston area circuits had national contenders like the Reveries, Crusaders, St. Kevins, St. Mary's and from time to time a few others. The local shows were high caliber in all the classes but especially in Class A. The Juniors managed to shine for several seasons.
49 Junior Corps Jacket This is the rear of the junior corps staff jacket. The image really sticks out in a crowd. I've had many nice complements over the years while wearing this jacket. People have chased me across various venues to make very positive comments about their memories of both the senior and junior corps.
50 Junior Corps Jacket Here's a secret, these jackets were reversible. This is the same satin and color of the original junior corps tunics.
51 Junior Corps Jacket This is the back of the jacket with a more simple design. It still gets attention though.
52 65 card We passed out these little cards while standing on a curb with a can begging motorists for money.
53 1965? CONTRA BASS COVER This is an original contra bass bell cover from circa 1965. It's hand painted. These were placed over the bell opening and were popular in the mid 1960's.
54 BIG BOOSTER STICKER This was the official logo for the corps before the Constitution image.
55 SMALL BOOSTER
56 Military Mass about 1966 Holly Cross Cathedral, Boston. On the Saint Kevins's web site there is footage of one of these masses breaking up. There's lots of other corps shown outside the cathederal. How many can you name? Follow the link, find the video and click on part 2.
57 1966 BOOSTER
58 1965 Show 1965 was a good year for the Senior corps. I believe they fielded the largest horn line they ever had and were very competitive. Knowing what I know and considering the corps on the list, this must have been a great show with close scores.

80 1966 CYO Nationals I remember this show. It was great! I remember the Royal Airs arriving late. Their buses stopped right behind the stands at the old stadium. The doors burst open and the emergency windows were pushed out and the corps literally exploded from the buses in full uniform. I never saw a corps unpack their equipment so fast and line up. They were in the gate in about three minutes, or so it seemed. Boston Crusaders 82.43, Royal Airs 81.13, Blessed Sacrament 79.70, I.C. Reveries 79.33, St. Mary's, Beverly 78.41, St Kevin's 77.61, Magnificent Yankees 75.40, Royal Lancers 73.10. Pittsfield Cavaliers 68.85, St. Mary's, Baltimore 51.01.
81 1967 BOOSTER
82 Night Show 1966 or 1967
83 1966 I think this is 1966 and it is White Stadium. I suspect it is the CYO Music Festival. That was the last CYO show if the year and was held in September. Boston CYO had so many Drum Corps, Bands and Drill Teams in Class A, B and C that it took two full days to run through all the units. It was a big deal back then. Notice the crowded back field stands for the Class A Drum Corps. That category went on last on the second day.
84 1967 DRUMFEST Drumfest was an indoor standstill held before the start of the field season. It was held at the old Boston Arena and was a judged show. It could set the tone for the following season. Here the Reveries senior corps is featured. This would be the last season for the seniors. The next year they would appear as the 27th Lancers.
85 1967 CYO NATIONALS PROGRAM This is the I.C. Reveries page from the 1967 CYO Nationals program book.
86 67 CYO Schedual Here is where we went in 1967. We attended most of these shows.
87 1967 CHICAGO CAVALIERS In a 1967 Chicago Cavaliers publication they published a list of all the corps the Cavaliers defeated in 1967 including the I.C. Reveries Senior Corps.
88 1967 Junior Corps Here is the 1967 Junior Corps, probably at the CYO Music Festival. "Does anyone want to k..." "I would like to know ..." View Comments...

101 Horns-A-Plenty Ticket. Horns-A-Plenty was the 27th Lancers name for their show in the early years. This is from their very first sponsored show. It was an Eastern Mass show and was presented on the Saturday after the Reveries Music Under the Stars show on Wednesday the 26th at the same place. I remember this being hard on the adults. The ties between the Reveries and the Lancers at this point were very strong. Siblings, cousins and neighbors marched in both corps. Parents supported both corps and worked hard behind the scenes at both shows that week. Things were uncertain for both corps in 1968 and the adults knew that the survival of both depended on hard work and dedication. In the end, this payed off for both corps over time as both corps thrived and grew over the following years.
102 AL SOLOMBRINO 1968 This is the Columbus Day parade. We're on Revere Street at the curve just before St. Anthony's Church.
103 68 World Open We were runners at the 1968 World Open. Here is Steve Solombrino and Russell Doerty returing salutes on the 50 yard line at Manning Bowl in Lynn.
104 68 Steve Solombrino This is a photo taken for Herb Cole's column in the Boston Globe.
105 1968 STEVE SOLOMBRINO 1968 with my father's sister, Marie Solombrino (RIP).
106 SCOTT SOLOMBRINO 1968 This is in front of our house. The four door garage next door is where we started the limousine business about twelve years later. Scott worked hard to build that business into a giant, global operation.
107 1968 Record American Aparantly the Medford Patriots Day Parade was postponed due to rain in 1968. The corps marched on the make up date in June. The color guard looks sharp and gets the credit for getting us into the Record American, now the Boston Herald.
108 1968 REVERE JOURNAL We won the Tripple Crown in 1968. Here is the story as presented in the Revere Journal with a rare photo of the corps in action. Don't forget, Class C corps didn't get mutch attention, even Champs like us.
109 1968 EASTERN MASS FINALS At retreat with the trophy being held by Ed Deangelis flanked by Berverly MacCarthy on the left and Margret Manate on the right. In the background the ever present Jim "BUZ" Walsh is looking dapper in his Reveries staff blazer. This was Eddie's last show before shipping out for the U.S. Navy.
110 1968 EASTERM MASS FINALS This is the official photo of the winning drum majors. On the left is Joan Duval, I.C. Reveries Class C. The Pembroke Imperials as Class B Champs and the St. Anthony's Imperials Drill team as Class A (The only class in EM, CYO had A, B anc C drill teams.) Champs. Donna Ebert is pictured here. On the right is none other than the late, great Jim Stokenger of the Boston Crusaders. The Pembroke Imperials drum major is Herb Brinkert.

114 68 Corps at Braintree I think this is Braintree. We are on the starting line. Can you pick out anybody?
115 Corps Jacket This is a corps jacket in new condition. I believe they were purchased after the senior corps was disbanded so they date back to 1968 or 1969. Notice the name "Reveries" without the "I.C.". Things were quite contentious between the corps and the parish from the disbandment of the senior corps until the merger with the Blue Angels. We didn't want the "I.C." on our jackets even at that early date. The wounds of 1967 have not healed.
116 Corps Jacket This is my personal version of the corps jacket from 1968. I added various patches and buttons to spruce things up. I wear this from time to time and get a lot of complements about the corps.
117 Corps Jacket This patch is from an even older staff blazer that was a mess. I saved this to commemorate those that went before me.
118 Corps Jacket My corps jacket with a CYO patch. I'm still looking for an Eastern Mass patch.
119 Corps Jacket This is the back of my jacket with added patches including a "Drum Corps Nut" patch.
120 Corps Jacket I added this to my corps jacket. It is a large patch from a very old staff jacket. I salvaged the patch as the original Navy Blue Barracuda jacket was ready for the trash. It is a great example of the boy in the cloud, the dream corps graphics that Chuck Chisholm designed so many years ago.
121 1968 Commemerative Patch In 1968, what was the junior corps had become an independent Class C corps. We won the Eastern Mass Finals, the CYO Circuit Championship and the CYO Music Festival. This was known as the "Triple Crown".
122 Staff Jacket These blazers were used by the corps staff in the early days before the Nautical Image. Men wore a collared shirt and tie with nice pants and shoes. We were after all a CYO corps and the adults were expected to set a good example. This one has a 1968 commemorative patch. Older blazers had other patches.
123 Garment Bag We all had some sort of garment bag to properly store and transport our uniforms. This one says "Drum Corps is my Bag". I remember there was one nail sticking out of the bricks at Farther Brennan Hall. If the corps was traveling to a show by buses, we'd meet at the hall and wait for the departure time. I always wanted to be the first on site so I could be the only one hanging my garment bag on the outside wall from that nail. It became a sort of contest between a few of us for a while. Just how competitive were we? LOL

143 1969 BOOSTER We won the Class C Tripple Crown Championship in 1968 and celebrated with this booster.
144 1970 Schedule Here is the 1970 schedule. Firs, notice the official letterhead with the boy in the cloud emblem and corps nickname. There are shows missing from the schedule such as our own show, the third week in June when we put on an exhibition. There were no doubt shows after August 15 that are not listed. The CYO Music Festival and Eastern Mass Finals were both in September. Let's not forget Revere's biggest parade, the Columbus Day parade in October. We were busy kids.
145 1970 CYO Color Guard Championship Program This is a poor scan as it does not show the entire document. The interesting thing here is the Reveries do not appear on the list. In my mind, I'm sure we had a winter guard that year but we may have skipped a season for some reason. We need more research.
146 1970 MINSTREL SHOW L to R Richie Hart, Donnie Wilson, Micheal Doherty, Steve Solombrino, John Sweeney, Billy Falon, Barbara Hunt.

156 SLUSHIE AND ADELVA 1970 WORLD OPEN Here is Slushie and Adelva (the site owner's parents) at the Fleetwood Records/Drum Corps News stand at the 1970 World Open in Manning Bowl, Lynn, MA. Slushie's cousin, Vin Giarusso was partners with Ray Samoura in FR/DCN who promoted the World Open and a few other shows. During the 60's and early 70's Slushie traveled the continent selling records in addition to having a full time job and his involvement in the Reveries (2 marching sons) as well as helping the 27th Lancers. Notice Adelva has 27th buttons and a Reveries patch. Drum corps ran around the clock 24/7 in our house!

221 TURN AROUND CRUISE 1971 Sharky and Slushy aboard the USS Constitution. The Comandant of the First Naval District used the Constitution as his flag ship. During the turn around cruises, the Admeral passed out personal invitations. The corps was alloted two, just this one time. Slushy was specifically named and he was allowed to bring a guest. We had a drawing and Sharkey won. Slushy still has the invitation and a large full color certificate naming him as a crew member for that specific cruise. Even today, being aboard during a turnaround cruise is a special honor.
222 1971 USS CONTIUTION TURNAROUND Sharky and Slushie got to go on a cruise. It was and still is an national honor to sail aboard the USS Constitution.
223 1971 TICKET This was our annual show that alternated year to year from CYO to Eastern Mass. It was always on a Wednesday night and was one of the very few week night shows for either circuit. We sold many tickets in advance of the show.

The Anzuoni family (owners of Service Bus Lines, Plymouth & Brockton, Brush Hill and McGinn of Lynn) was very good to us. In addition to the deep discount they put the corps name on the roll signs of all their busses. We arrived at each show in style with our name on the buses.

247 Color Guard Shirt The color guard wore these with a white duck A line skirt. These were sourced from a chain store.
248 Color Guard Vest The color guard wore these over the striped long sleeve shirt. They had four large brass buttons like the horn and drum jackets. This one had the buttons removed after the corps merged.
249 Shirt for Horns and Drums Our mothers found a chain store (Zayres? Almy's?) that could sell us lots of these cheap. They were more durable than expected and were colorfast.
250 Pants for Horns and Drums These were used by the horns and drums. They were U.S. Navy dress whites that were purchased from surplus stores. They were very hard to keep clean but we looked sharp on the field.
251 Jacket for Drums and Horns These were custom made.
252 Corps Jacket This is an example of the corps jackets we bought in 1971 to match our new nautical theme. We put the "I.C." back into the name on these, not because the wounds had healed form the senior corps debacle, but we needed a place to practice. I added the soprano patch and corps button.
253 Corps T Shirt This is from 1971 when we introduced our new nautical theme.

372 Eastern Mass Finals Champions The Reveries here. After the Senior corps was disbanded, the Reveries won Eastern Mass Class C in 1968 and Class A II (Class B) in 1970. Through the years, even though the corps didn't win a lot of local championships, the Reveries were very competitive throughout all the years they competed locally. While it is not reflected here, the senior corps, the junior corps and the post 1967 corps won many local shows. The corps was always full of great talent.
373 FIRE 1974 Father Brennan Hall the night of the fire. Tommy Upton (RIP), Mike Merret, Arthur Reilly, John Mauro, Tommy Kerrins, Tom Shaheen and Al Solombrino. As you look at the crime scene photos you can see the fire started in three seperate locations, all of which just happened to be the three storage areas for the corps equipment. We were lucky that our equipment truck didn't burn and that many of the other items we needed on the field were safe at home with the members.

384 1968 to 1974 Roster This roster is not complete. I've found at least a few names missing but these are most of the kids that marched with the Reveries after the senior corps was disbanded after the 1967 season. The roster seems a bit short for six competitive seasons but many of the members marched for many years. There was not a lot of turnover year to year. Many of these people started marching with the junior corps years before 1968 and many of these people marched for years after 1974 with other corps. In fact, some people on this list are still marching in 2017! Most are still close friends today and others we hear from occasionally. Unfortunately, some have passed away. We miss these members but we remember them as great marching members and close friends.
385 1974 This photo was taken in the fall of 1974 at the Chelsea Armory. We had separated from the church after the 1974 ended. This is shortly before we merged with the Blue Angels. This is probably the last photo ever taken of the I.C. Reveres. Not all the members were present for this photo

410 TOM SUMMERS 1995 RIP I got to know Tom better in his later years. He was a great guy and a very big drum corps nut. He loved the activity. We went to shows together a few times and had a blast.

421 2010 Mass Drum Corp Hall of Fame Slushy with his Hall of Fame certificate. He was very honored to be inducted to the Hall of Fame but was even more excited to see so many of his drum corps "kids" at the banquet.
422 2010 Mass Drum Corp Hall of Fame Some of Slushy's supporters at his Hall of Fame induction. FLR Karen Goff, Jimmy Walsh, Michael Goff, RLR Bobby Cotter, Donna Cotter. Notice the special Slushy buttons that were made up. "Dare's da door!"

432 1967STATESMEN JRS. A bit blurred but hey, not many photos of this corps exist.
433 1960's World Open Ticket Diagram This is a Manning Bowl ticket diagram from about 1966. Many great performances were viewed in this stadium over the years. I remember Wes Hobby announcing at the World Open and the thrilling setting under the lights. The crowds were always enthralled and displayed their approval of each performance with boisterous applause and standing ovations. When the corps trooped the stands heading for the exit, the crowds often went wild for an exceptionally exciting and well performed show.

439 Stetson Richmond Stetson was one of the first to record drum corps starting in the 1950's. It was a hobby though he would press vinyl discs of individual performances on an on demand basis. He recorded everyone at any show he attended. His body of work is outstanding for quality and rarity. Unfortunately, because this was a hobby, he often bulk erased his reel to reel tapes from time to time to save money. Much of his original recordings only live on with the rare vinyl discs that survive and the relatively small number of tapes that still exist in an archive. He deserves a lot of credit for enabling our performances to live on.

441 Moe Knox Slushy was very friendly with Moe. He was the "official" photographer for Drum Corps News. Thousands of marching members from hundreds of corps are very grateful that Moe photo documented our activity. He still does today. Many of our memories are only with us today through his photography. He worked hard to get each corps high points and signature moments. His candid shots of individual members were always well composed and he is very picky about what he will print from his negatives. If the shot was poorly composed, out of focus or improperly exposed, he will not print it. He wants not only his photographic reputation to meet a high standard, he wants his subjects presented in the most positive way.

443 American Legion, Revere, MA American Legion Post 61, Revere, MA. This post sponsored both the Revere Columbus Day Parade and the Memorial Day Parade. The members were also supportive of both the Reveries and the 27th Lancers through personal donations and other unheralded support. The Reveries kids used to hang out there and many years later, the Legion hosted many 27th Lancer Alumni rehearsals and social events. Several Legionaries marched in drum corps or had family that did. At one time they had a marching band that Slushy and his dad Carmine marched in together.
444 OUR PARENTS IN REVERE HIGH SCHOOL BAND circa 1946. For some of us our drum corps experience was set before we were born. Our parents Adelva Fernandes Solombrino, Al Solombrino, and Paul Shannon were in the band together. Other parents hung around with this crew like Janet Prochilo who became a music teacher and provided us with John, Jim and their brother Joe (who didn't get to march).
