    I'm taking my wife to dinner and a concert tonight. She'd be mad if I spent the whole evening on Periscope, right?

    When is the last time SCV beat BD at any show? I know they won at the Seattle show in 2004, and I really think that was the last time.

    I got to hear Academy in a standstill last night and they sound outstanding. That ballad is glorious. I can't wait to hear how tonight goes for them, and I can't wait to see all these corps live at the Rose Bowl next weekend!
  4. I don't know anything about her, I thought her only marching experience was 06 Cadets (she was Alice, right?), which didn't really feature her guard skills? Can anyone elaborate more? Purely curious.

    My wife surprised me with a 'guys night' for Father's Day for this Saturday, so I'll be missing the Stanford broadcast. But we're going to Pasadena next weekend in person, so I'll be able to catch the lineup then. Alright drum corps season!

    2018 Uniforms!

    I took like to wear long flowing dark leather in the summer months.
  7. Not sure if you're familiar with the area, I'm talking the marketing manager at Remedy's on St. Rose. She's giving me their separate dining area if I can get enough people (we're still discussing what 'enough' is) since we'll be ordering food/drinks all night. The room has two TVs already, and if we get the whole room I'm going to get a projector screen for the laptop too. And let me know if you're in town Ghost! St. George isn't far at all, would love to have a few more folks!
  8. Hey all, I live in Las Vegas. Most years I host a small party at the house for Finals, but I'm gauging interest to see if drum corps folks in the Vegas area would be interested in watching Finals at a bar instead. I figure we can get more people that way, and people I don't (yet) know can join without having to come to a stranger's house. I'll coordinate the bar and event, but want to make sure I have enough people to make it worthwhile. Note, if anyone responds on here and the event does not happen, I'll still be throwing a viewing party at the house and any/all DCP folks are welcome. Sorry if there was a better place to post this one.

    Do we know if past events will be available after the fact? Two shows on the same night next weekend.
  10. I don't mind at all. Music is a part of the whole drum corps show, so if two corps have a few minutes that sound similar, that's still not at all the same as two corps having the same shows. That latter would probably bug me. That said, as corps, it seems important to pay attention when another corps is playing the same piece in the same year. Boston had a great rendition of Malaguena in '03, but it's always felt super vanilla to me in retrospect purely because I liked Cadets' 03 version of Malaguena much much more.
  11. To be fair, Saucedo books are exactly what make me think this is the way to go. But give it a season or two with some experienced composers, and they'll have the drum corps design down just fine. I can't imagine that the inspiration from existing pieces has as much influence on the end product as we give it credit. And it is inspiration, no one is playing pieces verbatim, hell, no one is even playing a solid piece for more than 30 seconds. The talented arrangers already designing these corps shows have all the skills necessary to pull off original work, but it's just too different from the norm so most believe it can't be done.
  12. At what point does it just become more cost effective for corps to commission their own music?
  13. Man, I want to participate in this discussion, but 288 pages, I'm extremely sure I'm going to say something that's already been addressed.
  14. Wow. It would mean a serious pay cut, and moving my family to the other side of the country, but those factors aside this actually sounds like a great opportunity!
