The Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps
The Cavaliers were founded in 1948, as the drum and bugle corps for Boy Scout Troop 111 in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood. Their growing reputation as one of the best of Chicago’s neighborhood drum corps soon led the boys in the troop to reorganize themselves as a standalone operation, borrowing their name and logo from a brand of then-popular cigarettes, and choosing their colors of green, black, and white – a name, logo, and color scheme that have part of the corps history ever since.

The Cavalier Scholarship Auction
“I’ve had the opportunity to participate in all kinds of really exciting adventures in my lifetime, many of which have molded my musical and artistic taste. None of them have contributed to my character in the manner that participating as a member in this organization did. Now, in effort to pay back that experience I hope to continue to add pieces to the Kake Gallery collection to be auctioned off each year to support the dues of returning marching members. I look forward to more opportunities to meet current members of the corps, alumni, and participating in the support and growth of such an amazing organization! #SPLOOIE!”
