Original TROUBLE Drummer Jeff Olson To Perform With Drum Corps International All Stars
November 5, 2013, 3 years ago
Original TROUBLE drummer Jeff "Oly" Olson (THE SKULL, RETRO GRAVE, VICTOR GRIFFIN's IN-GRAVED) will be taking a walk down memory lane with his announcement of taking part of Drum Corps International's 2014 All Star Reunion with The Blue Stars (show dates to be announced).
In 1975, Olson began marching for Drum Corps International (DCI) with the Fox Valley Raiders playing Melephone. In 1977, Olson became a switch hitter and began playing first soprano bugle with the corps. By 1978, Olson shocked his horn instructors and auditioned and made the snare line until the Fox Valley Raiders folded that year. Olson then joined the Blue Stars in the spring of 1978, but the drum line was full. He, therefore, marched the season again as first soprano bugle until he joined the band Trouble in 1979 at age seventeen.
