Summer Tour


Summer Tour


Our season begins in mid-May with about 4 weeks of rehearsals (known as “pre-tour”). Rehearsals are typically 12 hours a day, every day. Members do get several blocks of free time and a couple opportunities to do their laundry. This is by far the most tedious and challenging portion of the season.

In mid-June we begin traveling and performing. We typically perform at approximately 30 shows throughout the country, ending with the Drum Corps International (DCI) World Championships in Indianapolis on the second Saturday in August.

The Cavaliers typically drive about 10,000-13,000 miles each summer. We travel in five coach buses; three are for the members, one bus for the instructional staff, and one bus for our volunteers.

Our convoy also includes three semi–trailers. Two carry all of our uniforms and equipment and the third is a mobile kitchen used to prepare 4 meals a day for our 150 members plus staff and volunteers. It features a walk-in refrigerator and freezer, washer/dryer, a shower, and drink system that is the envy of DCI.
