Many thanks to my first old man roommate, David Rodgers, ’72 and Tim Long, ’71 JC, for preserving the memory of these two cadences. The first is the familiar drum cadence that the Band used before parades, at the Harrisburg Horse Show and other events to get the Band where they were going. The second is the stick beat. I recall playing this when the band left the parade field at the end of Sunday parades.
David and Tim both did the transcription for the drum cadence, and David performs both the cadence and the stick beat. Click on the sheet music to download a printable PDF of the sheet music.
