Seth’s marching career started in 2012 with WGI World Class ensemble Palmetto Percussion. He then went on to perform with The Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps in 2014. Seth enlisted in the Marine Corps in June of 2015 where he currently serves as Bass Drum Music Instructor and a performing member of “The Commandant’s Own” The United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps.

Greg Banks

Bass Technician

Greg is excited about joining the United Percussion staff for the 2019 season. He got his start with the Red Land High School marching band as a percussionist from 2004-2008. Greg’s marching experiences include the Hawthorne Caballeros Drum and Bugle Corps from 2006-2008, and The Cadets Drum and Bugle corps where he was a part of “The Holy Bass” as their Bass 1 from 2009-2012. In 2011, Greg and the rest of The Cadets took home the gold medal in DCI World Championships. In 2014, Greg served as a clinician staff member as a bass tech for Cadets Winter Percussion where they were gold medalists in WGI open class. Greg was also the Bass Tech for Cadets2 from 2013-2014. Greg also was the bass tech for Mechanicsburg High School’s indoor and outdoor programs from 2009-2014, and Red Land High School’s 2009-2015 programs. Currently, Greg is the bass tech for West Shore School District’s outdoor and indoor programs.


Adrian Amegashie

Cymbal Technician

Adrian Amegashie has been a marching percussionist since high school; he played bass, tenors and snare in school, then went on to play cymbals. He marched three years at the Jersey Surf Drum and Bugle Corps, one year at United percussion and two years at Rhythm X. His favorite part of the marching arts is the opportunity it gives to become a part of the music.

As we enter the 2019 season, it’s even more important that we are able to provide an instructional staff with a wide range of performance experiences. The unique opportunities that these three have been a part of will really be a resource our students will benefit immensely from.
