This marks Ike Jackson’s third season of involvement with the corps and as head of the percussion caption. He has brought a level of achievement and excellence to Impulse that continues to impress fans and judges alike. Ike connects well with the members, inspiring and motivating. His professionalism and willingness to handle tasks outside of the percussion caption make him a valuable asset.

In Ike’s thirteen years as a percussion instructor he has worked with more than 35 different percussion programs at the high school, college, and drum corps levels. A prolific percussion arranger and drill designer, Ike has worked with various percussion ensembles all across the Southwest.

Caleb Rothe returns to Impulse Drum & Bugle Corps for his second season as the Front Ensemble instructor and arranger. Caleb has been a percussion educator in Southern California since 1997, working with more than 20 different high schools and independent percussion ensembles. He is a nationally sought-after arranger and has written for various groups across the United States; having written arrangements for groups of all levels.

The Pro-Mark Corporation, Sabian Cymbals, and the Yamaha Corporation of America endorse Caleb. He is a member of Pro-Mark’s Indoor Percussion Development team. Caleb was also a founding member of the Southern California Percussion Alliance. He is a member of the SCPA Executive Board and serves as Secretary. Caleb is also a member of the Winter Guard International Percussion Advisory Board. His ensembles have collectively won 6 WGI medals; have been WGI World Championship Finalists 12 times, Regional Finalists 36 times, and Regional Champions 14 times.
