Joe has been a marching member of the Grenadiers, Empire State Express, Watkins Glen Squires and the Garfield Cadets from 1982-1985 as a mellophone player. Joe joined the visual staff of the Cadets in 1987 as a Contra Tech and became visual caption head in 1989 under the mentorship of George Zingali and Marc Sylvester. In 1993 Joe Roche served as a visual consultant with the Star of Indiana drum and bugle corps and has since been involved with the activity as an adjudicator and clinician throughout the United States. Most recently Joe served on the staff of the Madison Scouts in 2004 as a visual consultant tutoring new staff members. Joe is currently a Guidance Counselor with the US Army Recruiting Command at Ft. Hamilton, NY. Formerly a public school music educator in New York State, Joe holds his permanent teaching certificate in music education K-12 and hopes to go back to the public schools when he retires from the US Army.
