System Blue Welcomes The Skyliners
It is with great excitement that System Blue welcomes the Skyliners Drum and Bugle Corps to the family. Skyliners made the announcement that they will play System Blue Brass at DCA finals week in Rochester, NY.
"We are thrilled to have the Skyliners play System Blue," says Al Murray, product designer at System Blue. "The corps brings a rich history of excellence and tradition, and builds an even stronger bond with Drum Corps Associates for System Blue as a brand. It is exciting to see System Blue and the Skyliners together."
Formed in 1945 to create a corps for members of two New York City American Legion junior corps, the Skyliners are an all age drum corps currently from Pennsylvania. Over the years, the New York Skyliners have produced staff, members, and instructors who have become household words in the drum corps fraternity; some are downright legends. Many of these Skyliners have been inducted into the prestigious Drum Corps Hall of Fame, Buglers Hall of Fame, and various State Halls of Fame, such as the New Jersey Drum Corps Hall of Fame.
"We are excited to be working with System Blue!" says corps director Larry Carbonell. "The entire team has been very welcoming, and we look forward to being with the brand for many years to come."
The corps ultimate goal is to perform visually stunning, musically intense, high-energy productions. Their teaching philosophy is grounded in a foundation of respect, honor, and integrity. The corps is for any individual looking for a place to belong, or a place to improve their personal abilities and achieve team goals while having FUN.
We welcome the Skyliners to the System Blue Family.
Together, it's our time.
