Biography

1967:

The unofficial birthdate of the 27th Lancers is September 26, 1967. It was on that autumn evening that former members of the recently disbanded I.C. Reveries gathered at the Bonfiglio home to discuss the prospect of forming another drum corps. The name 27th Lancers was taken from the film “The Charge of the Light Brigade” (starring Errol Flynn) and like the British Regiment in the film, the corps was to struggle against immense odds. And so the first public appearance of the 27th Lancers was October 12, 1967 in the Revere Columbus Day Parade. With borrowed equipment and uniforms these original members were the beginning of many successful corps to come.


1968

It was the first season of the corps, and it was successful. They won their first show, “Preview of the Junior Champions” in Bridgeport, Connecticut; took top brass at their second show; and went on to make finals at the VFW Nationals in Detroit, Michigan. The 27th Lancers were only beginning to make their presence known.

1969

The East Coast was beginning to recognize the powerful horn line, impressive drum line and innovative colorguard of the corps. Missing the VFW Nationals by a mere .05, the corps bounced back to take second place at the C.Y.O. Nationals and became the Eastern Massachusetts Jr. Drum and Bugle Corps Association Champions.

1970

The 1970 27th Lancers began to broaden their horizons by going independent of their local circuit and competing head to head with the nation’s best drum corps. They developed a unique style and flowing visual show that held much more for the future. The corps became the Mission Drum Pageant Champions.
