  5. Dr. Dan Richardson passes

    Dr. Dan was one of the most beautiful souls to ever grace our activity. He was genuinely kind, supportive, and loving.
  6. Bluecoats = one word. Don't make me come over there. (I can't believe I'm still fighting this battle.)
  7. 2017 Open Class Championships - Aug 8

    What were the scores announced before Guardians?
  8. Folks, I just wanted to clarify something that’s been floating around so there’s no confusion when we get to the day of the DCI World Championships Prelims. Please share with others so everyone’s on the same page and there are no surprises when we get to August 10. Some of you may have been informed that Flo Marching is live streaming a webcast of the entire Prelims show, right on through Fathom Events’ broadcast of the Big, Loud & Live 14 theater broadcast. Please be aware this is NOT the case. As before, the last 15 corps in Prelims WILL NOT be streamed live. However, you will still be able to see all the corps that will be performing in Semifinals and Finals via the FloMarching webcast.
  9. No. I tried donating it to a local theater group for their prop department and even they didn't want it.
  10. I've long claimed that Joel Alleyne of Etobicoke Oakland Crusaders (DCI Worlds Finalist 1975-1977) was the best and most crowd-oriented drum major I've ever seen. I've written such in a column I do for another website.
  11. fanfare for the new

    I've recently bought a CD with a rendition I never knew existed. It's the first track on the CD and it's a really outstanding performance. This CD also has the original recording of "Bully," performed by Chicago Cavaliers in 1965, 1966. 1967, 1969, and 1970, and also by Cavaliers Anniversary Corps in 2008. http://www.steveweissmusic.com/product/1128364/audio-recordings
  12. 1997 as well. Listen to the beginning of Magic of Orlando's show.
  13. I should start banking some sleep now. While I certainly appreciated not having to do Recap Roundup last summer, it felt really weird to go to bed early after a show and feel like I should be writing the feature.
  14. Favorite "lost" drum corps moments?

    I was looking forward to seeing Star of Indiana's "hamster wheels" used at the end of their 1986 space show, but they accomplished nothing but laughter from the audience and disdain from the judges, so they were quickly removed from the show and literally buried by a backhoe being Star's corps hall.
