Tom Float began his career in marching percussion on the single tenor in a drum and baton corps in Pittsburgh, PA. After moving to California, he called a local trophy shop to get suggestions on which drum & bugle corps to march and wound up in the 1973 Diplomats (because in Tom's words, "I called the Anaheim Kingsmen, but their phone was busy). In 72-74, Tom marched and aged out in the Kingsmen with Ralph Hardimon - calling themselves "the heads" (because they were easily a head taller than everyone else in the line).

Tom's teaching career began with the 1975 as an assistant to Sacramento Freelancers' Don Silva. In 1976-77, Tom taught with Al Murray at the Etobicoke-Oakland Crusaders and Spirit of Atlanta in 1978-81. Tom is probably most remembered for his 1982-90 drumlines at the Blue Devils, where he won 4 consecutive percussion titles (1983, 84, 85, & 86). Since 1990, Float has worked with the Velvet Knights, developed music programs at Disneyland and has performed marching percussion clinics throughout the world. Tom recently was inducted into the D.C.I. Hall of Fame.
