    I haven't seem them either. But, I am guessing, not well in comparison. I watched a minute of this video and saw a Vandy kid carrying a marching euphonium. So they probably played some lame BS with tone quality and time and stuff.

    JOBE at Soundsport

    I am not merely going off of the WI contingent. I have seen videos of the West Coast version. And I heard their combined forces in person at Soundsport last year.

    Thing is, these people are from Chicagoland. Hence, the "Third Coast" reference. They are riding the coattails of a group that is riding the coattails of the Jim Ott name/brand. And frankly they are all, East/West/Third whatever, doing a #### poor job of it. It actually offends me and almost everyone else I know that they are trading on that name with the ramshackle product they put out. Let the DCI high brass trophy and recordings of lines he taught to stand for his legacy. Or stay home and play in the VA basement until it is fit for public presentation.

    Wait? "We'll see?" I just went and bought 6 sets of tickets to every DCA event Labor day weekend for me and the five other people who care anything about JOBE, and now you say "maybe" you'll come out? Jeesh, I should have just waited to see if you were going to show up at the minicorps contest. You don't have to buy a ticket to that event, it is free. But, then again, the minicorps contest ranking is according to scores, which are decided on by professional adjudicators. It's not a clap show, so I am not sure how well JOBE would fare in that venue. Perhaps you all can come out and do pop-up blasting sessions on the streets of Rochester for inebriated passersby? And if you follow V.O.R's advice and hook up with "The Edge", I'll bet you could get those Keno wheels they used out of storage. Drunk folks ate them up last time. I think it was the spinning aspect.

    I have been waiting to buy tickets, and your cryptic posts have gotten me, and I assume tens of others super excited! At which venue will you be bringing your sliver medal winning program for us to get our ear drums shattered at DCA? At the stadium? Or at the mini-corps contest?
  7. I hear you can get these pretty cheap at auction.
  8. I think we can all agree, that says it all.

    Blue Devils on top...really?

    Wouldn't that be considered good visual design? And be scored accordingly? And will someone let me know when Crown hits a straight line cleanly (that isn't a halt,) or do I just have to watch Cadets to see something like that? Love Crown's sound and show, but visually, and by that I mean strictly marching, it is a bit of a hot mess. The body positioning stuff is good.

    Inside BD 360 trailer

    I haven't even seen the video, it was removed before I could see it, but I love this thread THIS MUCH! The level of butthurt in this thread epic. BD has always had swagger. They win a lot. If you don't like it, create a program that will consistently crush them. If not, I got no sympathy for you. And you know what you'll be saying - a bunch of losers sittin' around in a bar... 'Oh yeah. I used to be in a drum corps. It's a tough racket.'

    How much does the yamaha euph weigh?

    You know the answer. "If you have to ask..."

    Sorry for the insanely noob question but....

    Let me Google that for you... or The Middle Horn Leader

    It begins....

    Since you are obviously going to be the very definition of "old skool", may we also assume that the sweet electric bass guitar will also be pitched in "G"? Cuz we all noez that only the "G" electric bass can provide the proper amount of "Bow Chicka Bow Wow" for a G-Petatonic scale. There's no skool like the old skool, yo! p.s. If I play Mellow, but I have a intense tone quality, could I just go ahead and play Mello instead? U know, to avoid any confusion. p.s.s. Rut-Roh.
