  1. Bridgemen 1980 27th Lancers 1981 Honorable mention to 1980, which probably should have won the title. But '81 has Niner Two.
  2. All time shows: The Cadets

    I play the 82 a LOT. As you say, the change from the previous year was night and day.
  3. 2005 Phantom

    Yeah, it's a bit of a departure for Regiment, but it is flat out fun, and I particularly love the way the brass writing and percussion writing complement each other.
  4. Best Musical Moments In DCI

    1996 PR In its entirety. Cadets 2005 - Ballad
  5. I'd prefer this more than an increase. How many more people can you cram in the pit, anyway?
  6. Advice on a trumpet

    I'll let my wife know about the Jupiter and Yamaha--she's doing the looking, and will only buy a horn she's held in her hands--mainly because she ran across several horns where they were asking $250 and it turned out the tubing was so gunked up you couldn't blow through them. Thanks again--I'll let you know what we end up with.
  7. Advice on a trumpet

    1. We'd like to keep it under $400 if possible. We've found a number of used Bachs in that price range. 2. Hard to tell, but this past year his music class played recorders, and he enjoyed it a lot and was good about practicing. 3. So-so--which is one of the reasons we're looking at used. If my schedule allows, I'm going to try and take him to a DCI show later this summer. thanks!
  8. Advice on a trumpet

    My 11 yr old son is going to start on trumpet this fall, and we're looking for a relatively inexpensive horn . We've been looking at a used Bach TR-300. Is this a good choice for a beginner?
  9. The Velvet Knights should reform and perform a Schwarzenneger meets Shakespeare show entitled Hasta La Verdi.
  10. Phantom Regiment 2016

    Yeah,this is kind of where I am. Guard uni is lovely and will look great on the field. Corp uni is fine in a generic way, but it just doesn't scream "Phantom".
  11. Thanks! I'll sort out how to rip the audio soon enough. And at those prices, I went ahead and got 2008 as well.
  12. Had to rebuild a crashed hard drive. Recovered most of it, but one of the casualties was my mp3 of On Air. Without violating site policies, does anyone know where I can get a replacement copy? I've looked for CDs, w/o any luck.
  13. Rocky Point Holiday

    I've always loved that show.
