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

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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, Al Romano 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).

This is the only time I remember him playing in front of the corps.
He marched with St. Anthony's Parish Band, Revere High School Band and marched with his dad in the American Legion Post #61 Band.
He also had a dance band in high school, "Dance and Sway the Al Krey Way"!
