In 1958, the Holy Name parish declined to support the corps' travel and disbanded the corps. The members and staff, however, were not willing to cease the corps operations, and reorganized as a new organization, even though the parish kept the uniforms and instruments. Midway through the 1959 season, the parish allowed the corps to once more wear the uniform that remains their trademark.
