  1. DCI Design Staff's Other Work

    Reagan High School Band in San Antonio has Drew Shanefield (Cadets) arranging music and Andy Toth (SCV) on visual. (I think he writes the drill but am not 100% positive.) Ray Ulibarri (Blue Knights, Bluecoats, Crossmen) is the percussion instructor and Noel Gabritina (SCV alumnus) teaches guard.

    Thanks! I had a lot of fun watching them rehearse and perform. My daughter is in guard, so I usually had my attention in that direction, but I constantly found myself with the music playing in my head. This year’s writing was so complex and tasty— Mr. Shanefield really does some great work.

    I also think that the show my daughter’s band, Reagan, put out this year was actually stronger than the one they took to nationals last year. Just a couple of weeks ago in the San Antonio regional, they came in 5th, just under Avon, and bested Marcus and Flower Mound. #timing (Although last year’s show did land them a surprise invitation to the Rose Bowl parade.) Unfortunately, they can only plan on going once every four years.

    I only graduated in 2014 (“non traditional student”) They’re horrendous...

    ####, we still had to pay!
  6. She’s marches color guard in Reagan. (My old high school band wasn’t even in the same universe.)
  7. We just keep building them bigger here in Tejas. (Bonds here, bonds there, bonds everywhere...) It’ll be some time before the Friday night lights start dimming here. And on the band side of things, they just keep getting better and better. I’m blown away by my daughter’s band this year.(I’m in the parking lot waiting to pick her up now— the semi trailer equipment truck is pulling in just now...)

    I know Dan has been a polarizing figure for some here on DCP, but he defined what it was to be a Regiment hornline member and helped shape that characteristic Regiment sound so many of us fell in love with. And he was The Godfather of the Buicks. (He also bought me my first legal beer when I turned 21 on a free day when we were on tour.) Thank you for your years of service to the corps, and best of luck.

    Gaines is now drill designer at SCV. Talk about a who’s who team.

    Excellent news.

    If they could just quit with the silly voice overs and amping the horn line I'd be a happy camper.

    We did too. And an embryology lecture, no less. The ######## used an actual slide projector, so we couldn't download it and he FLEW through them. We all looked like deer caught in headlights. He finished and everyone was like, WTF just happened? It was definitely the hardest I've ever had. But the coolest, too.

    And then the hammer falls! Actually, they didn't really lay into us until the following week. I'll never forget my first day of Gross Anatomy. Good luck!
