  1. Cavies’ Samurais ambush Cadets’ ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ for DCI Madison winJune 28, 2008 -- Madison, WI . . . Camp Randall Stadium. Say that name to drum corps fans and they’ll wax nostalgic about the performances they’ve seen in that legendary University of Wisconsin venue, which has hosted no less than seven Drum Corps International World Championships, the last in 2006. It is widely viewed as one of the best stadiums for drum corps in the country.Through the years, Camp Randall has been good to The Cavaliers, who won their first DCI title there in 1992 and their last there two years ago. All totaled, they won three of their seven titles in Madison. And that sacred drum corps ground proved to have great karma for the “Green Machine” again as the Cavies’ samurais ambushed the Cadets’ “Pursuit of Happiness” to take top honors at DCI Madison to cap the first week of the 2008 season.“Well we have a nice history here at Camp Randall. The fans are great,” said Kevin Gates, the 22-year-old drum major of The Cavaliers who hails from The Woodlands, TX. “We just came out tonight and had a really good ensemble show....

  6. Cavaliers wow crowd with ‘Samurai’ production at Southwind DCI competitionJuly 1, 2008 -- Richmond, KY . . . Nothing can begin to describe the complexity of the 2008 Cavalier show of “Samurai.” What the staff is asking of these kids is phenomenal . . . and they are answering the challenge. The guard tells the story of the samurai with so much emotion, you feel each and every member is a warrior. The horn line even gets into the action with their dance and body involvement. At one point they even jump over another member of the horn line in a karate kick-type motion. The music is so haunting, at times it gives you a chill. Then, when they want, they hit you with that big sound. The percussion is extraordinary this year, not just in their playing, but with the movement while they play. View the full article
