Let's check in with some Dark Sky snare drummers marching this summer:
Christian Blydt-Hansen and Kenny Duran are marching on the Pacific Crest snare line. Christian is a Fountain Valley HS graduate and now studies Computer Science at Cal State Long Beach. He marched PC in 2014 and 2015 and is the center snare this season. He has also been teaching at his alma mater during those same years. Good thing Christian stays so busy - we hear he drinks 4 glasses of chocolate milk a day! Better keep marching Christian!
Kenny was on the 2016 DSP Snareline with Christian and is marching next to him at Pacific Crest. Since graduating from Lakewood HS, Kenny is attending Long Beach City College where he is a pre-nursing major. This is Kenny's second summer with PC and before Dark Sky, he marched a season of indoor with Elan Percussion. Best of luck to Kenny and Christian as they march across the country performing "Union Pacific".
Ricky Gil de Montes is marching this summer with the Oregon Crusaders after a summer with Gold '15 and Impulse in 2014. Ricky is a Whittier HS graduate and is now a music performance major at Cal State University LA. When Ricky is not marching he enjoys going to the gym to "get swole" - watch out world!
There's only 10 days left to follow your favorite DCI corps and support the hard working members traveling throughout the country.
