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 Tony Gibson!
1. Please state your name, age and hometown (and Twitter handle if you have one).
I'm Tony Gibson, 50, Chicago, IL - Twitter handle: @TrayG
2. How long have you been a Fan of The Cavaliers?
I've been a fan of The Cavaliers since 1982 - so...30 YEARS!
3. What is your favorite Cavalier program and why?
That's so hard...toss up between 'Niagara Falls (2000) and Machine (2006). Niagara was some of the best and innovative drill writing ever and the show was visually fascinating. Machine was just pure joy to watch/listen and so engaging.
4. What music/show would you like to see The Cavaliers perform?
I've always thought TRON would open up some really fun visual opportunities and could echo back to 'Machine.' It's been so exciting to watch the corps explore new territory this year, they could go almost anywhere next!
5. Did you make it to a drum corps show this past summer? If so, which one(s)?
Absolutely! Made it to Michigan City, Lisle, Rockford, as well as Semi's and Finals in Indianapolis!
6. What do The Cavaliers mean to you?
The Cavaliers are the epitome of Brotherhood, Dedication, Diligence and Teamwork. I believe in their efforts to create young men who have learned the value of those traits and will become our future leaders. Leaders who understand that through self discipline and mutual effort, excellence is achievable. I'm thrilled to be able to support them and I'm excited for future opportunities expand that support.
Tony - Thanks for letting us get to know you just a little better during Fan Fridays!
