In 1986, Leonard Bernstein referred to the New York Philharmonic lower brass section as his "Hunky Brutes." Led by Joseph Alessi, the group had T-shirts made to memorialize the unique encomium, presenting one to Bernstein. "Being President of the Hunky Brutes is one of the great honors I've ever been paid – I mean, the Nobel Prize, who needs it!" - LB
