The Jolly Jesters Sr. D&BC of Toronto were quite the creation, and as the article says, were ahead of their time.

The Mountlake Terrace (Seattle) Jolly Jesters Jr corps existed for a mere flash in time in 1962-63.  They were related to the Toronto corps by their Director, Mr. Tarasco and the music provided by Ted Reilley, Director of the Toronto Sr. corps.
