• March Crown? Aaron Says Do It

    Crown Age-Out Aaron Stickley Says YOU CAN Fill His Spot 228217_4962620741728_892748143_n.jpg

    The first time I saw a drum corps was in 2009 in Kingsport, TN. That night after the show, I looked at every corps I could find on YouTube. The one corps that grabbed my attention was Carolina Crown. Their show “The Grass is Always Greener” is still one of my favorites, and to this day, it will always be the show that sparked a dream. If you are undenianbly passionate about what you do, then you can Fill My Spot!
