May 11, 2011 – Ridgefield Park, New Jersey

Bushwackers announce new Color Guard Caption Head

The Bushwackers are proud to announce Aaron Palmer as the new Color Guard Caption Head for the 2011 season!

Aaron comes to us fresh from a successful season as a featured performer in Emanon Winter Guard, a WGI Independent

World finalist, and is excited to be a part of the Bushwackers staff at such a pivotal point in the history of the corps.

"Aaron is a consummate team player who brings a high level of excellence to the color guard," says Bob Gupta,

Bushwackers director. "Aaron brings with him strong connections to the color guard community to attract, retain, and

develop aspiring performers to reach their ultimate in performance."

Aaron's teaching experience includes a host of color guards in the northeast, including Elizabeth High School, Scotch

Plains-Fanwood High School, Matawan Middle School, Roselle Park High School, Riverside High School, Emanon Winterguard,

Fusion Winterguard, Fusion Core, and the Skyliners Drum and Bugle Corps.

As a performer, Aaron has appeared with Light Brigade (92-04), Blessed Sacrament (07), Emanon (11), Skyliners Drum

and Bugle Corps (05), and the Sunrisers Drum and Bugle Corps (03).

Aaron is a graduate of Pierce College, and earned a BA in Information Technology during his time there. When he is not

performing on the field or floor, Aaron is a network technician for the Matawan School District.

Added Consultants, Administrative Staff, and Visual Tech

In the continuing effort to strengthen and round out the instructional and administrative teams, four more contributors

have been added to the roster. Please join us in welcoming our new team members!

Joe Itkor has been a quad player, baritone player, keyboard player, timpanist, and percussion arranger for the Bushwackers

in the past. Adding a new hat to his collection, Joe joins us this year as a business team member, managing contracts for the

corps. Joe will use his experience as a Board of Education member and band director to negotiate and maintain the corps

contractual obligations, and aid in keeping the corps financially sound by building lasting relationships with show sponsors,

parade committees, and equipment manufacturers.

Welcome home, Joe!

Kate Koeberl has joined the administrative team as our Uniform Manager. Kate has been a member of the Bushwackers

for a number of years as a color guard member, and as a designer and creator of color guard uniforms and flags. She joins

us in a similar capacity this year, outfitting members with uniforms and making adjustments where necessary.

Welcome back, Kate!

Jerome Kimbrough, longtime marching member and instructional staff member, rejoins the team as a visual technician for

the 2011 season. Jerome has a wealth of drum corps experience on "both sides of the fence," as they say, and has made

a positive impact on the Bushwackers for over 20 years. Jerome's full bio is available for viewing here.

Jim Dugan, once the heart and soul of the creative team that brought six DCA World Championship titles to the Bushwackers,

returns as a Program Consultant for 2011. Jim's passion for the drum corps activity is unparalleled, and his track record

speaks for itself.

We are proud to welcome Jim back home!

Last, but certainly not least is Al Chez, best known as the trumpet player on CBS's "The Late Show with David Letterman,"

once again joins the Bushwackers as a brass consultant. Al is no stranger to the Bushwackers, having been a marching member

and co-drill designer in the early days of the corps. We are proud to have Al on the team, and look forward to his guidance as

we continue to mold the 2011 version of the Bushwackers!

Our next rehearsals are Saturday and Sunday, May 14th and 15th, in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey. Performance opportunities

are available in all sections! Come out and be a part of the 30th Anniversary season of the Bushwackers!
