Profile Information

Were you ever involved in drum corps?
yes - LONG ago
About Me:
I am the daughter of Les Parks who instructed the Garfield Cadets a long time ago. He also instructed the Hawthorne Caballeros and brought them to National Champs 7 years from 1958-1964. I am looking to share my dad's music with the people who loved it.

Ooops. I meant to clarify, we posted information on your Dad when he first joined the Cadets' staff in 1962. Select "history" from the bar menu, then select "current" from the selections on the pull-down menu.

Hi Nancy...I played snare with Garfield from 64-67. I think your dad had to break my arms and fingers to get me to play correctly. He had me play inside a coat hanger, a ruler taped to my left arm, my pinky taped. It The pictures and solos brought back fond memories of the man. I learned so much from him. He was tough and demanding. He knew what he was doing. I went on to teach many drum lines, for over 30 years. I am currently the drum instructor for the Alumni corps. I hope to meet you one day.
