  1. Cheers! We're feeling as ready as ever to give the crowd something to enjoy.
  2. Might be worth keeping your eyes out on our social media this weekend ;)
  3. We are proud to announce an extremely exciting new partnership between ourselves and FJM — Fred J. Miller Inc. The corps will be wearing uniforms exclusively designed by the world class designer Michael Cesario. These will be making their debut at the first DCUK : Drum Corps United Kingdom show of the season in Barnsley on the 18th June. Our Corps Director Rob Swindells commented, "After speaking to David Gibbs at the end of 2016 he put me into contact with Mark Miller at FJM. Mark has been fantastic and has been the greatest help to making this dream become a reality. Michael has designed something that has a brilliant blend of both traditional and contemporary elements whilst still ensuring it is identifiable as the Kidsgrove Scouts. We are very proud to be wearing a Cesario Exclusive and are really excited to debut the new uniform at the start of our 2017 season." #KS17 #MontaguesandCapulets #FJM
  4. Well... there goes my announcement!
  5. In 100 days time we will be crossing the pond to the United States of America for our 4th tour! Previously we have travelled over in 2010, 2012 and 2015 which created many special memories that we treasure dearly. This summer we will be once again competing on the Drum Corps Associates circuit which will include performing at a show in Reading, PA before heading up to Rochester, NY for the DCA World Championships. We look forward to seeing everyone out in the States and we hope you enjoy our 2017 production entitled Montagues & Capulets!
  6. Yeah we all know Pianoman sucked, but I wouldn't of changed it for the world. That season was just as much of the story as last year was and if that year hadn't planned out the way it didn't then the changes that came in places after might not of happened! Thus no change in the staff line up etc. Everything happens for a reason, our adversity that year would lead on the create something beautiful in the following years after. For 2017, I'm looking forward to seeing the corps grow and as a proud alumnus I will stand by them in whatever path they take following on from a great 2016 season. Yes, I am biased as hell but I have heard some exceptionally great things from the winter preparations and the new uniform is the cherry on the cake.
  7. I've enjoyed both our trips to Rochester but in 2012 it was nice to experience things in Annapolis so I'm sure a move of championship venue will come with its pros and cons of course which we may or may not experience first hand for ourselves. Regardless of where it gets held, its the crowd that makes it what it is and I hope people still travel out to attend finals even if it means an expense to them!
  8. It was an absolute pleasure getting to watch him perform that solo, he literally nailed it every performance at rehearsals at at the shows! Very talented lad and a great asset to BD. I got to meet him this summer, I knew his twin brother before from when I marched as he came to camps in a trainee spot. I'm very sure he will fully remember his roots and is grateful for the experiences he had at Academy. All the best to him!
  9. Yeah, I'd say we definitely have a higher cost of living over here though from my experience of both sides of the pond. I have seen before about tourist being able to claim some of the VAT back, which I suppose helps promote people buying so I'm all for it! As for the QPR top, I'm no football fan but I agree that there wouldn't be no value added to that ;)
  10. Tom, I believe the corps will be visiting Seneca Falls again next year, in 2015 we raided the outlet village there. I couldn't believe the difference in prices, we all spent a small fortune there that only regret was that I didn't get more! Happy Holidays to you and the family, hope you are all well.
  11. Who is more excited us or you? ;) I am of course very biased but the show is taking shape very nicely...I don't normally get goosebumps in November! Also we'll be heading to the Reading show this year for a change, we have loved performing at Bridgeport but wanted to try something different out.
  12. Fair enough, but if you do check our DCA we hope you enjoy the show! Where you moving to Florida Sun?
  13. Haha, I'm not going to tell you a single thing for the plans we have but I am very excited about what we're going to produce. Full credit to our amazing design team, they're top draw. Will you be at finals?
