  1. Is this the same piece that SCV used as the opener in '82 and '83?
  2. Now that shows are mostly announced... 1) Devils 2) SCV 3) Bluecoats 4) Cavaliers 5) Crown 6) Cadets 7) Phantom 8) Blue Stars 9) Blue Knights 10) Boston Crusaders 11) Crossmen 12) Academy 13) Madison Scouts 14) Colts 15) Troopers 16) BDB 17) Mandarins Shows I am most curious to see: Cavaliers, Phantom, Cadets, Academy
  3. Caught some rehearsal footage on Periscope and I'm sure they were playing The Canyon...
  4. Snarky Puppy in drum corps, yes!!! It's about time!
  5. My bet for the Steve Vai... Previously used as the basis for the Blue Knights' percussion feature in 1993 (kudos Ralph Hardimon) Looks like a home run in terms of programming...can't wait to get a taste.
  6. 1986 Suncoast Sound 1987 Madison Scouts 1997 Colts (Blood Sweat and Tears!)
  7. Somehow I missed hearing where Mapes and Grom are headed...has that been officially announced?
  8. What about hostrauser? He did a great job with his rankings page for many a season!
  9. I have the $99 subscription but can't seem to get access through the website, although it is showing up on my iPad (same as jwillis reported). Here's the response from the live chat support: EmilieHi Jay. Did you purchase the PPV for tonight's show? The show tonight is available only as a PPV as it is a fundraising event for the corps. $30 of your purchase will go directly to the drum corps of your choice. This is a special broadcast an not available as part of any of the DCI Live! Subscriptions. You can find more information here: http://www.dci.org/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=33500&ATCLID=211085600
  10. I feel really stupid posting this, but here goes... So I installed the DCI.org app on my iPad, logged into my account, all good. On the "Featured" tab I see the listing for the DCI Southwestern Championships. I click on the "Watch Live" link and it just pops up a box with the event and ticket info...what else is there to do to go to the video feed? I don't see it when clicking on the "Video" tab under the Main Menu either. Thanks for any and all assistance...
  11. Any chance you could make the ranking pages rotatable? Great app, thanks...
  12. Showing my age here, but the pit writing at the top of the show takes me back to the wonderful Ralph Hardimon percussion feature in 1984...
  13. Wow, what an insanely delightful kick*** pit book!
  14. Off to the races... 1. Devils...the safe choice but I think the 3-peat is imminent 2. Cadets...back in contention with a strong program and powerhouse captions 3. Crown...likely the crowd favorite but percussion continues to drag 4. Bluecoats...would so love to see a title but wondering about variety in the music book 5. Blue Knights...I'll buy the hype, thought they made a real jump in quality and poise last year 6. Cavaliers...bouncing back with a refocused program 7. SCV...hoping there will be some spice to what seems like a generic show 8. Phantom...was initially thinking higher but maybe a learning year for the new staff 9. Blue Stars...loved them last year and think they will surprise 10. Madison...always a favorite but not sure about success with a re-tread show 11. Boston...easily could be wrong about this, just too many good corps in the bottom six 12. Academy...my Cinderella pick, the one group bringing the fun back to drum corps 13. Crossmen...they probably won't stumble but curious to hear how the all-original book shakes out 14. Troopers 15. Oregon 16. Spirit 17. Colts 18. Mandarins 19. Pacific Crest 20. Cascades
