    2018 Tour Premiere

    And now we're in the early development stages of a solid Phantom Regiment show!

    A better question I propose to you: Why does Blue Stars' drum major have a second pair of gloves tucked away in his apron? He's wearing gloves already. Shouldn't he wear the gloves he has in his apron? It makes no sense. One pair of gloves is enough.

    I agree. I feel as though this is what turning into a dinosaur is. Every show seems like it is dancing horn runs with percussion fills in between while trust falls are going on. Every show designer seemed to mention "We really want to explore the human nature" or "human emotions" or some esoteric crap. Go out there and play some thing loud I can at least hum after I hear it. I feel like drum corps as I knew it was gone after about 2010.

    I find the gap Saucedo placed in GE2 between Boston and Cavies very interesting. I was shocked at the overall gap between them and Boston, and his scoring alone created about a quarter of said gap.

    The Academy 2018

    After seeing The Academy's show on youtube, I appreciate the amount of melody they put into it! Good stuff!

    Phantom Regiment 2018

    I just watched the videos, and I'm really digging the show. It's got some dirt musically, but the drill looks solid and they are going for more wow moments it seems. HOLY TONS OF TENORS!!!!!

    All time shows: Bluecoats

    1. 2010: Awesome all around show 2. 2005: Another great all around show 3. 2006: The ballad is one of my favorite ballads ever arranged. This year has my favorite drum judge commentary ever at the end: "WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! TAKIN A BATH, IN CLEAN DIDDLES!!" 4. 2016: I'm happy I got to see this live. 5. 2009: Haitian Fight Song was dope.

    All time shows: Blue Devils

    1. 1993 2. 2003 3. 1992 4. 2005 (This show gets an unfair rep. Yes, the narration was cheesy, but imo the real headscratcher was designing the show to be backwards. All of that aside, the music selection was fantastic, and I prefer it to most other shows I've seen) 5. 1995

    Drum Corps as an example of Meaner Society?

    ^ Occult Blasphemous ^ Dark Liberals ^ More occult ^ Glorifies the devil I also don't think I need to go into all the examples of COMMIES in DCI history. Especially all the times that COMMIE ALFRED REED and his "COMMIE Christmas Music" has been played by SCV, Crossmen, and the like. /s

    1. 2000 2. 2005 3. 2007 4. 2003 5.1992 I consider every single one of these among the best drum corps shows of all time.

    The "Music Corps Should Do" thread

    I've never heard this version, only the Eagles version. After hearing this though, I'd start off with the orchestration this is in, then end with a brass only hit with the ending of the eagles version. Good good stuff.

    7 Bridges Road in the same vein the Bluecoats did "The Boxer"
