FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Rosemont, Ill.) — The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps is proud to present the looks for our 2019 program, The Wrong Side of the Tracks.
The Cavaliers would like to extend a special thank you to Michael Cesario and the entire team at Fred J. Miller Inc. (FJM) for their unparalleled quality, exceptional service and attention to detail with our 2019 show looks.
“FJM is a key strategic partner that has helped define and elevate The Cavaliers' iconic look since the early 1980s,” said Lamar Long, Director of Media & Marketing. “We're truly honored to work with Cesario and the entire team at FJM, and are excited to continue this relationship boldly into the future.”
The 1840-1860s inspired look includes a mixture of plaids and stripes with a touch of green among the other colors on each uniform. From ascots and shoulder harnesses to high-waisted trousers and multi-colored vests, the corps will bring a rugged and distinct look to the field in 2019.
“Each part of their vest is slightly different from one person to the other so there are literally 150 different variations of that vest,” Cesario said.
Cesario worked hand-in-hand with Artistic Director, Daniel Wiles to develop this rough and tumble look for the corps.
“The uniform is centered on the mixed usage of different textures that have a certain edge and beat-up quality to them,” said Cesario about the uniform inspiration.

“We had an amazing time putting this creative photography together in partnership with the very talented Bradley Leeb,” said Long. “We partnered with the City of Blissfield, Mich. to gain access to a non-active railroad and train cars to create these incredible photos.”
