  1. You’ve all had time to play the 2017 audio and video recordings a couple dozen times - what is your go to show? Which one have you listened to most? Me? Has to be the Blue Stars show... can’t put my finger on why, just love the book.
  2. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    I know what Crown is doing... but I'm not telling. What I can say.... the drum corps world will be very pleased.

    It's impossible to predict where a corps is going to place in January, however, it's safe to say this group should be in the running, especially with the show they've got lined up. IMO (I don't know the details of the theme of the show), the music selection is better this season than last, and its extremely powerful.

    Zero drop off in talent... its amazing, but not surprising, this group can continue to get better each season. And yes, from what I've been told, no signing this season. The show music I've heard has no apparent opportunities for vocals.
  5. Big news!

    All is well in Crown-land. Great turnout this weekend for the brass and drums. The corps worked through a couple of minutes of show music, and it sounds amazing. Talent level for both sections is consistent with last season, no drop off at all. Still have no idea what the show theme is, and Jim mentioned to the audience that the corps is still working to secure the rights to all of the music. One or two hints, the show will have a lot of power right from the beginning, and the intro will have fans off their seats. And, there are a lot of freaking notes. More than I've heard from Crown, maybe ever. If you are a brass player, you will LOVE what Michael is writing. Thats all folks! Carry on, nothing to see here.

    Thank you gentlemen!

    Report from camp: saw the corps today at Clover HS - looks like another successful weekend. Brass was still in audition mode, with at least 150+ on hand. They played Xmas tunes and parade tunes for the crowd. The guard looked great and performed a routine. You can see there is a bit more experience in this years group. Battery: OH MY GAWD! I’ve been going to Crown camps for 7 years and haven’t seen a battery this talented. They’ve already made their cuts - 9 snares, 5 tenors and 5 bass drums. The drums played a couple pieces for the crowd and jaws were on the floor. If this drum line gets a tasty book, they will be dangerous. The People’s Front Ensemble was on site but not present for show and tell. All in all a great camp, nothing announced to the crowd about possible show themes or music, and obviously no show music introduced yet. That’s it for now.
  9. For our friends from BK - just heard Away for the first time and absolutely love the tune. I don't recall this being part of a BK show, can anyone shed some light on its origin, its original compser, etc? Thanks in advance!

    Just listened to the audio recording, and sounds like there was some decent editing happening to take out the electronics issues. Wondering if this was the semifinals recording.

    From what I saw on Sunday, I don't think it affected retention one bit. And even if it does, they have more than enough talent there to reload. Crown will be just fine.

    Robust! Well done kids!

    Crown has another audition camp coming up in December. From what I've been told, that's when a lot of the vets start coming back. At that time, they'll start making offers and begin the cut process.
