Tour director Mike Pfeil returns to YEA! and The Cadets after a 10-year stint in the restaurant business in New York. Mike, a Johnstown native, was the merchandise manager in 2003 and 2004 and then operations director of The Cadets and The Crossmen in 2005 and 2006.
Mike is a past drum major of the General Butler Vagabonds and attended Clarion University. His brother, Eric Pfeil, is a Cadets alum and is currently the band director at the Greater Johnstown High School. After working at YEA! through 2006, Mike moved to Manhattan and began a restaurant career, where he worked for several well-known chefs including David Burke and Michael White.
This year, Mike decided it was time to come home to Pennsylvania, and so he is returning to The Cadets to oversee the corps' administrative team on tour. Mike is looking forward to a great season with The Cadets this summer!
