BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Randy Villegas has always dreamed of playing drums for the prestigious Santa Clara Vanguard Cadets, a private, nonprofit youth organization in the performing arts.

Recently, Villegas auditioned and was accepted, but now he needs to raise money to tour with this internationally known organization.

Villegas has been playing his drums all-day long on different Bakersfield street corners in hopes of raising enough money to tour with the cadets.

Villegas, who teaches drum line at Foothill High School, also needs to raise money for his flight home from Indianapolis when the 2013 Summer Tour ends.
