Vincent David McCauley has been a percussionist since his high school days back in 2006. He participated as a trombone player in concert band, and even singing in choir. It was also in the summer of 2008 and 2009 that Vince participated as a marimba player with Impulse Drum and Bugle Corps, providing him with a hefty level of performance experience and the opportunity to develop as a musician.
In 2010, Vincent joined Pulse Percussion as a vibe player, where the group earned their first WGI World Championship for their program, "Worth the Wait". He remained with the group for 4 more seasons, eventually moving on to marimba, aging out in 2014 as the front ensemble captain with yet another WGI World Championship for their program, "That Which Confines Us" - establishing Vince as the only five year member able to claim being part of the ensembles which earned Pulse's two WGI championship titles.
In the drum corps realm, Vincent followed up his two seasons at Impulse with a season with The Academy Drum and Bugle Corps in 2011. He played marimba before moving on as vibe player in the 2012 Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps - which earned their 15th DCI World Championship, along with the Fred Sanford High Percussion Trophy, for their Dada-inspired program, "Cabaret Voltaire".
Instructing wise, Vince currently works at Temple City High School & Crescenta Valley High School.
