Genesis is gearing up for 2013 and welcomes many returning members to its Caption and Design Staff:


Genesis Drum and Bugle Corps is pleased to announce the addition of A Jay Riojas in the role of Colorguard Caption Head for 2013. Mr. Riojas brings an extensive amount of experience to the team in both the DCI and WGI realms. A full time colorguard instructor in the San Antonio area, Mr. Riojas enters his first year with Genesis and his 10th year as an Open Class Caption Head. We would like to welcome A Jay to the team and the future of our program.


Returning to the team this year is Edward Gobbel as the Brass Caption Supervisor and Staff Coordinator. Mr. Gobbel is returning for his third season with Genesis. Ed is a professional clinician with bands across the US and is a sought after arranger and writer. Mr. Gobbel will be welcoming back many faces on his staff in 2013 and announcements will be made soon.


We are pleased to announce that Dillon Ingle has been promoted to Percussion Caption Supervisor for 2013. As one of the original founders of Genesis, Mr. Ingle will be taking a more creative and administrative role with the program. His caption team will be headed up by Battery Caption Head Mike Craft and Front Ensemble Caption Head Javier Bermudez.

Mr. Craft, a Band Director with the PSJA ISD, is entering his 3rd season with Genesis. As a former member of the Troopers DBC and working with both the visual staff and battery staff with Genesis gives Mr. Craft a very unique insight with our battery program and we look forward to his new role with Genesis.

Mr. Bermudez, the Head Band Director at Riverside Middle School in the San Benito ISD, will be entering his first year with the Genesis program. A former Blue Devils member, Mr. Bermudez has been involved with our team and with Mr. Ingle for sometime now and we are very excited to have him join our team.
