Every summer, parents, fans and alumni come on tour to drive, feed and fit The Cadets.

Several generous volunteers have already blocked days and weeks out of their summer to come on the road with us, but there are still lots of gaps in the calendar that we would love to fill as soon as possible.

Whether you are a seasoned veteran of the Carrot Crew or have never volunteered for a drum corps in your life, you are welcome to join the family!


Please take a look at the following weeks where we still need extra hands, and please e-mail Lainey Braatz at if you are able to donate some of your time this summer.

Or, view The Cadets' 2014 Tour Calendar to see when our schedule lines up with yours.


The team at Youth Education in the Arts invites all supporters of the marching arts to a special event on Sunday, May 18, 2014 from 1 to 5 p.m.

YEA!'s Food & Wine Fest returns for its fifth year to the lovely Taos Wok & Restaurant in East Rutherford, N.J. for an afternoon spent celebrating drum corps, music and the arts with friends.


"I think this is by far the best social fundraiser to support The Cadets," said Greg Pych, a Cadets alum, committee member for this event and long-time volunteer and donor. "It is also great value to the donor; great foods and over 60 wines to taste!"

The event will feature an unforgettable, all-you-can-eat menu including filet mignon, seared tuna, smoked salmon, sushi, beef wellington, blackened chicken and so much more!

Plus, enjoy a never-ending bar including oysters, mussels, clams, crab claws and shrimp cocktail.
