Don't forget the Bridgemen 1978 soloist at the end of "Harlem Nocturne".


If I'm not mistaken, that guy was killed in a car crash just before the '79 seaon. I'll ask some BMen buddies if I have the right person.

I just asked a friend and she said the soloist for '78 & '79 was Jim Brady and he is very much alive today. But I will find out who was killed .....I'm pretty sure that guy played a solo too.....maybe for the '77 season. :hum:

Frankie (Barrow I believe was his last name) was the 1978 soloist who was killed in a car accident prior to the 1979 season.

Brian, I just asked a couple of friends of mine who are Bridgemen Alumni and marched in that era. She said it was Frankie Borrows who crashed in 77/78 winter and he was not a soloist but a lead sop. He crashed his car in a building in a jersey city.

I just double-checked, and I guess Frankie's last name was Borow. According to the writeup about him after his death, Frankie played several incidental solos in the 1978 Bridgemen field show (especially in the "Whale" closer).

Brian, I'm asking them again because I seem to recall hearing that Frankie had a bit solo as well. Of course it's been over 25 years ago so us old pharts suffer from "old timers" from time to time.
I don't doubt you for a minute though.....you are very precise when it comes to drum corps history and would be the first person I would consult when it came to a historical question about drum corps. :wink:

Hey Malibu....How was your Florida trip?

I just found the article. Frankie Borow III was killed in February of 1979. It said that Frankie did solos at the beginning of Spanish Dreams in the 1978 Bridgemen field show.

I just realized that Jd mentioned the solo in Harlem Nocturne. That would have been the 1977 Bridgemen, when Jim Brady did the fabulous solos. Jim really did nail some screeching notes in that number.

I wished I could say my trip was awesome, but I would not be telling the truth.


Here's my post about the trip;

Yikes!! Sorry I missed reading it on the other forum.

I hope you've had a better time of it since then.

How about the '69 Kilties soprano lick at the end of "Auld Lang Syne"?
The Boston Crusaders had an excellent sop soloist playing during "Conquest", doing some nice work in the upper range.
The Cavies in '72 had a stratospheric lick at the end of their ending fanfare as well.
Blue Devils have always had killer sops.

No it isn't. I'm pretty sure it's Madison '86. That guy hit an E above a super C.
