CORPS Photos

The Bronx Kingsmen was a junior drum corps. In 1961 some music hater had the corps served with a summons for disturbing the peace. When the case got to court, the judge demanded of the complainant whether he would rather have an 80-piece musical ensemble in his neighborhood or 80 delinquents loose on the streets. The corps won.
