ROBERT FINDLEY Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut in the mid-1940s, Bob Findley knew what he wanted to do the first time he saw a senior drum and bugle corps contest. However, he was much too young to join a senior corps at that time. By the late 1950s, junior drum and bugle corps were springing up across the state. His involvement began when he was recruited to play drum in St. Ann's School drum and bugle corps. He enlisted in the United States Army in 1963 and served until 1966. He returned home to resume his drum corps career, eventually becoming drum major for such highly regarded senior corps as Connecticut Hurricanes, Connecticut Yankees, Rhode Island Matadors, Connecticut Alumni and the Park City Pride alumni corps. He began instructing in 1969 and became a drill and show designer for many drum and bugle corps, high school bands and winter color guards along the East Coast and throughout the Midwest, winning many titles and awards. In addition to these continuing commitments, he is the drum major and visual coordinator for the Park City Pride. He is a member of the Rhode Island Matadors Hall of Fame and a charter member of the Connecticut Hurricanes Hall of Fame.

Bob Findley began his long involvement with drum corps and the marching arts in the late 1950s as a drummer with St. Ann's drum and bugle corps in Bridgeport Conn. He enlisted in the US Army (1963-1966) and upon his return home, joined the Hurricanes in 1967. As a member of the drum line, he was part of two DCA championship seasons ('67&'69). Bob became an assistant drum major in 1972, a position he held through 1976.
Bob was also the lead drum major for the Connecticut Yankees, Rhode Island Matadors, Connecticut Alumni and the Park City Pride Alumni Corps. He began teaching in 1969 and became a drill writer and show designer for many drum corps, high school bands and winter color guards along the East Coast as well as the Midwest, producing many titles and awards. In addition to these continuing commitments, Bob is the visual coordinator and drum major of the Park City Pride.
Bob is a member of the Matadors Hall of Fame as well as the World Drum Corps Hall of Fame and the Connecticut Hurricanes Hall of Fame.

Bob began his love of marching music at age 10 as a trumpet player for the Madison School Band of Bridgeport in 1955. Soon after, he witnessed the Barnum Festival's "Champions on Parade", and was inspired to join Bridgeport's own St. Raphael's Golden Buccaneers Jr. Corps where he honed his craft as a lead soprano player through 1960. In 1961 he joined the Hurricanes, a fortunate time, as he enjoyed Championship status for much of that decade. In 1970 Bob was tapped as the new Hurricane Director and Business Manager, a post he maintained through 1976.
In addition to his long career with the Hurricanes, Bob served as vice president of Drum Corps Associates (DCA) from 1975 through 1983. He also served as Musical Chairmen for the Barnum Festival's Champions on Parade from 1975 to 1980, serving as grand marshal in 1980. In 2005 Bob became Director and Business Mgr. of Bridgeport's popular Park City Pride Alumni Corps.
Bob was inducted into the World Drum Corps Hall of Fame in 1979. In 2007 he became president of that institution. He is also a member of the Hurricanes Hall of Fame.
