Joey Martinez is from Fresno, CA and graduated this past spring from California State University – Fresno, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Accounting. He is now working on a teaching credential so he can keep pursuing the life of fame, glory, and riches that is the world of marching pageantry.

For indoor, he marched with the Sacramento Freelancers in 2010, Pulse Percussion World in 2012, and RCC in 2011 & 2013 (all as a bass drummer of course).
