The Drum Major

Jocelyn Dicent is the frosting on our layer cake, the Caesar to our fearless army. Our ever enthusiastic leader, she conducts like a summer’s day.

Past Drum Majors


The Manager

The only person in the band with any concept of responsibility. Shannon Yasuda is our mighty Manager who specializes in feeding us pizza, wielding her whiteboard, and coordinating our lives. She’s the boss.

The Yale Bands officer corps serves not only the YPMB, but the other two Yale Bands as well. No job is too big - the officer corps works wonders, and all out of love. At least we think it’s out of love. It could be they just want their names on the letterhead.
