Verona, NY United States
They were known initially as the Wampsville Drumadiers, being sponsored by the Wampsville Fire Department, and they were made up of only a drumline, with horns added about 1974. They marched nine horns in 1975 and 22 horns in 1976.
In 1975, they separated from the fire department and became independent.
Initially the group was a firemen's drum corps and performed in parades throughout upstate New York. The Grey Ghost took to field competition in Class B in the New York Penn Circuit and competed for the first time in Binghamton at the New York State Championships.
In 1977, the Grey Ghost had grown to 25 horns along with three snares, two triple tenors, and four bass drummers.
The corps folded in 1978 before the season started.
