After 25 years of involvement as a member, instructor and lead designer, Michael Gaines is stepping down from his role as the Visual Coordinator and Drill Designer for the 7-time Drum Corps International (DCI) World Champion, The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps.

“Of course this has been a difficult decision, but I’ve made sure that the corps is in an incredibly strong place before taking this personal break from the drum corps activity,” said Gaines. “I’ve grown up with The Cavaliers, and I’m forever indebted to the organization and its leaders for taking a chance on me early in my career. I have nothing but the utmost respect for and the fondest memories of my mentors, colleagues, students and dear friends from the past and present. It’s certainly been a wild ride!”
