Every Friday, The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps will be featuring a Fan of the Week for our Fan Fridays effort! Young, old, far and wide - our incredible fans are at the center why we do what we do! This week, let's meet Jameson!
Jameson is 6 years old and from Greenville, Tenn. He came to practice this week with his mother and older sister.
Jameson has been a fan of The Cavaliers for three years now. His first show was 'Mad World' from 2010 - since seeing it, he's taken time to learn the choreography to the 'This Is My Rifle' segment.
Jameson brought his prized possession with him to practice - a guard rifle sent to him from The Cavaliers. He's been spinning it and learning how to toss it!
At rehearsal, he got to know the members of the corps. He held every instrument, and got to play the drums with the drum line!
Jameson wants to march with The Cavaliers when he's old enough to try out. He's going to play every instrument, and march with the color guard.
He's been watching The Cavaliers' shows daily, especially 'Mad World'
As a special gift, the color guard got together and gave Jameson a signed rifle to go with his practice rifle!
Jameson - Thanks for letting us get to know you just a little better during Fan Fridays!
