This is a throwback to old school military-style snare drumming. It begins very regally and majestic before ending with a funky finish!
I could say that this cadence was dedicated to the "Jamestown Fire", or Captain John Smith's release by Powhatan, but it is actually a 16th note groove cadence that was last revised in 2008.
This is a fun, easy, recognizable cadence that is based on a popular fusion melody from the 80’s. Many drumlines over the years have played cadences based on this popular tune. This one always gets people excited!
