The Administration of the Skyliners Drum & Bugle Corps field corps announced that they will be sponsored by the Michael Steiner American Legion Post #411 in Jessup, Pennsylvania and the Garbarina-Mazarakos American Legion Post #1523 of New York City. The corps plans to rehearse in the Jessup/Scranton, Pennsylvania area.
The Skyliners were drawn to the area for a number of reasons. First, it is centrally located for potential members to travel comfortably from the tri-state area, including central New Jersey, Pennsylvania and upstate New York. The historical connection with the area and the Post was also of interest. The Drum Corps Associates organization grew out of a meeting held in the Fall of 1963 at Hotel Jermyn in Scranton, which was organized by Doctor Almo “Doc” Sebastianelli, a member and past commander of American Legion Post #411. The New York Skyliners was one of the founding members of Drum Corps Associates, and Lefty Mayer, then Director of the corps, was instrumental to this important development in drum corps history. In previous years, the Skyliners rehearsed at the field in Jessup for the Scranton shows.
The amount of interest shown in the Skyliner field corps returning to the competitive arena has been exciting, and we appreciate the support, inquiries, and offers of assistance. More details and information about staff, show, open house and rehearsal schedule will be published in the future.
The Skyliners have a rich drum corps history spanning 68 years. We have won every major title available to a Senior (Currently called "All Age") drum & bugle corps. We are the 1949 and 1950 American Legion National Champions, 1963 World Open Champions, 1966, 1971 and 1975 DCA Champions, the 1999 and 2002 Drum Corps Associates' Class A World Champions.
