From a Revolution press release: Tim Overturf has been named percussion caption head for Revolution. Overturf hails from Bakersfield, Calif., where he began his career in percussion as a performer and writer. He has instructed and written for various programs from California, Colorado, Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky. He was with the Dimensions in 2002 before becoming that corps' percussion caption head in 2003. He then moved on to the Marion Cadets in 2004 as percussion caption head. Tim currently resides in Michigan where he stays active teaching percussion. He also works as a product consultant and signature artist for Regal Tip drumsticks. "Tim has the drive and determination to bring the best out of our percussion members," said Revolution director GM Kuzma. "He has an education-first mindset that will be invaluable to our drum corps as a whole." As percussion caption head, Overturf will be responsible for hiring and developing Revolution's percussion staff. "I am very excited to be on board with the Revolution team," said Overturf. "I feel the time off in 2004 was a great way for the organization to regroup and find ways to build on the previous success. We're now ready to come out and take things to the next level."
