11.05.2007 // News from Dutch Boy Drum and Bugle Corps!



We are pleased to announce that Joe Shuker has joined our 2008 design staff as percussion caption head and battery writer. Joe brings to Dutch Boy 20 years of marching percussion experience and a lot of enthusiasm to take the program to the next level. Joe grew up in the area marching with Ridge Raiders and Kiwanis Kavaliers. He then moved on to The Cavaliers where he aged out in 2001 after 5 years of marching with them. Joe placed second twice at individuals on solo snare. He currently consults with Northcoast Academy’s indoor drumline and is a Dynasty endorsing artist. We are very excited to have Joe on our staff and part of our design team. Joe is replacing Bruce McCarthy, who at this time due to other commitments is unable to dedicate the time necessary to achieve our goals. We would like to thank Bruce for everything he did for Dutch Boy and look forward to his new position as a consultant.
