1. Aldo & Jolan Mazza invited me back as a staff member at the 19th KoSA Drum Camp & Festival this year and it was INCREDIBLE!!!!! I wrote a lengthy essay about the KoSA experience.

If you've never been to KoSA put it on your bucket list…you'll thank me some day!!!!!!!!!!
2. Congrats to Gus Cuccia as he joins the ranks of Gallant Entertainments incredible drum lines. The New York Giants, New York Knicks and all the rest can boast having Tom Coughlin, Derek Fisher and Gus all on their sidelines!!!!!!!!!!!
3. PASIC 2014 will feature J. Mark Reilly and Brendan Mason, two of the hottest young stars in the world of traditional (& not-so-traditional) rudimental drumming. I am so proud of both of them and can't wait to see them take the stage. Mark will be joined by Peter Vulperhorst from Holland and Brendan will perform with The Connecticut Patriots
4. Over the past few years I've been developing The Great American Fife & Drum Band and I'm happy to say we are off and running. As we perform more I'll be sharing pics, but I assure you it is one of the most exciting things I've ever done!
5. The Civil War Troopers are once again on the street and hosting our annual muster on the 4th weekend of July in Montgomery, NY. Rudimental drumming's living legend Nick Attanasio will be with us for his 82nd year of drumming. God Bless Nick & his wife Gerry. She is the driving force behind Nick and they are both an inspiration to us all!!!!!!!!!
Thats all for now my friends…NOW STOP READING, PICK UP YOUR STICKS AND START MAKING MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!!
