March On! ...the history of the
Toronto Optimists Drum & Bugle Corps
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Corps: Guelph Opti-Knights, De La Salle, Oakland Crusaders, Optimists Alumni
I'm not sure if this is correct but it appears that Al probably joined Del and, later, the Oakland Crusaders with his brother Chris. In 1977 Al played contrabass with the Oakland Crusaders.
Al was one of the early members of the Optimists Alumni. He joined the alumni's excellent drumline and played quads in 2004. The corps had four quads: Al, Jim Kane, Mark Lewis and, keeping it in the family, Al's brother, Chris.
