Visual Instructor, Bluecoats
Jason Bentley started his drum corps career at age 15 with the Bluegrass Brass Senior Corps. He then went on to perform with the Crossmen and The Cadets.
Immediately following his age-out summer in 1999, Mr. Bentley joined the Crossmen's Visual Staff in 2000 where he continued teaching through 2002. He went on to work with East Coast Jazz (2003-2006), Jersey Surf (2007-2009), Blue Knights (2010-2012) and Academy (2013). In that decade, Bentley helped his groups win multiple visual performance trophies and a DCI Division II championship.
He now serves as a visual instructor for the 2014 DCI Silver Medalist Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corps. In addition, Bentley works as a drill writer and visual consultant for marching bands across the United States and does some local circuit judging from time to time. He currently resides in Atlanta, Ga., where he is an avid disc golfer.
