Bob Bowser started marching in the General Butler Vagabond Cadets in 1969 as a baritone horn. Graduating to the A corps in 1973, Bob continued to march with the Vagabonds until he "aged out" in 1980. Bob was a member of one of the finest horn ensembles ever in Western Pennsylvania. Those who remember the Vagabonds horn line will note the string of individual solo champions who are accomplished music educators and performers today.
Reunited in the Steel City Ambassadors senior corps, Bob along with many former Vagabond champions led the senior corps to a DCA Finals and Championship run (1986-1987) from 1982-1987. Retiring from the field in 1991 to devote his time toward his career as a die-cutter/foil-stamper, Bob continues to follow both DCI and DCA while providing back-up support for the Just Us ensemble. We could not do it without you Bob!!!
