Wes Myers started playing snare drum with Troop 46 Boy Scouts in 1952, and went on to perform with a number of junior and senior corps in New York and New Jersey. He drummed with Staten Island PAL in 1953, then performed with St. Vincent’s Cadets and Amboy Dukes. He was member of Ballantine Brewers when the corps was undefeated in 1963 and 1964. He joined New York Skyliners in 1965 and marched in the drum line until 1970 and again in 1974. He arranged and taught Sky’s drum books from 1971 through 1984. During that time, Skyliners won the Drum Corps Associates (DCA) title in 1971 and again in 1975, and won the 1980 DCA high percussion award and the 1981 DCA high execution score for percussion. His use of two separate drum lines and two percussion books was revolutionary in drum corps circles in the mid-1970s. He has been percussion arranger for a number of junior and senior corps, including Melrose Black Hawks. He has been affiliated with the National Judges Association and the Drum Corps East Judges Association.
