Josh Katz is a member of the mellophone section. He has marched with the Hawthorne Caballeros from 1985 to present, taking a few years off in between (1995, 1997, and 2005). He previously marched 8 years in Jr Corps between 1978 and 1985, most notably Black Watch in 1982 and 1983 and the Bayonne Bridgemen from 1984 to 1985.

“I came to Cabs late in ‘85 after I returned home from DCI. My brother Al asked I come and possibly fill a hole they had. While I didn't end up filling the hole, I stuck around and in fall of ‘86 I joined the mellophone line.

While I've known of the Cabs all my life, I never thought in a million years I'd ever find myself marching here. I owe pretty much everything I have in my life to the corps. My immediate family has marched here and I met my wife Valeri here, who also marched and still instructs the pit, and over the past 34 years I've made lifelong friends and have extended my family exponentially. There is no place I would rather be. And where else can you still perform at a high level all this time.”

“I’ve continued to return to Cabs because of the family environment they’ve built there for us. The Family there is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. When you’re having a great day someone is always cheering you on and even on the worst of days someone will always have your back and motivate you to keep pushing reminding you you’ll never be alone on the field.”
