The Saint Rocco‘s Cadets was a junior marching and maneuvering corps based in Brooklyn, New York. Formed in 1957 as the standstill Golden Aces, they were sponsored by St. Rocco‘s Catholic Church, the Sixth Memorial American Legion Post, and the Frank A. Longhito VFW Post.
The corps’ colors were turquoise, black and white with a silver medallion enclosing the letter R.

Known for their big band Broadway sound, the corps’ awards included the Yankee Circuit Championships for 1962 through 1964.

Despite attempts at mergers, the corps had disbanded by 1970, a victim of member recruitment into the military.

Thank you all for the kind words and prayers that you've sent. Last night my dad was given last rites, and we truly thought he would pass away last night. But the stubborn man that he is, just won't give in. So we're all at the hospital waiting. My mom is recovering from Bronchitis…

One of the greatest jr. corps to come out of the Boston area, a pleasure to watch, a dread to compete against - drum wise. Their drumline taught and arranged by PhD Gerard Shellmer was 10 years ahead of its time. Back again as a non-competing senior corps - the Boston Crusaders!

CALLING ALL GUYS AND DOLLS - OUR MAN Harold "Zippy" Davis needs our help.

I just received word early this morning that Harold was on his way to a bicycle meet as he does every weekend.  He was to check into his new apartment at the end of the day, so he had most of his personal belongings in his car, plus an expensive racing bike on the rear bike rack.  He was rear-ended by another vehicle on the Interstate at a high rate of speed, causing him to lose control and the car rolled over many times.  Harold is currently in the ICU of Broward Medical Center, all of his…See More
