  1. Minnesota Brass Announces 2018 Production

    The source music for this show has been added to my Drum Corps 2018 playlists on YouTube and Rhapsody/Napster.
  2. DCI Uniforms from 2018 and beyond

    Correct me if I am wrong, The Cavaliers "Game On" uniform for the guard was full-on athletic apparel. The wait is already over and in the past.
  3. The logistics issue really comes down to time/facilities. I have hosted Blue Devils and/or Cavaliers for the past few years before the DCI Annapolis show. I also have several other schools in our area that have hosted or are interested in hosting. We treat hosting as an educational event for our students. This helps keep the costs down for the corps. An open rehearsal is a great way to motivate marching band students at the beginning of the marching band season. We also let the corps put up a souvenir stand during open rehearsals so they can make a few $ while they stay at our facility. There are two challenges in hosting a corps for an Annapolis competition. The first is many of the Maryland schools lack the turf fields desired by most corps. I saw some corps having to rehearse on parking lots with no access to the stadiums in Maryland schools. The second option creates a distance issue. As I mentioned above, I have hosted several corps over the years. However, we are in Virginia and many corps don't like the 60-90 minute drive. It would be great to have DCA back at Annapolis. I fear it won't happen due to these issues along with the hotel costs.
  4. 2018 Programs & Playlist

    Thanks again Liahona for your fine work. It is truly appreciated by all. I will continue the YouTube and Napster/Rhapsody lists as well. Both can be found by searching "Drum Corps 2018" on either site.
  5. A Gift - The Source Music (Thru the years)

    Thank you. I will start the 2018 list for YouTube and Rhapsody.
  6. A Gift - The Source Music (Thru the years)

    Program Titles, yes. Song titles, not so much.
  7. A Gift - The Source Music (Thru the years)

    Still waiting on Shows titles and music to be released for 2018. Until then, we can continue to listen to the old source music.
  8. A Gift - The Source Music (Thru the years)

    I used the tem when I first set up the string. From one Badger (actually UW-Whitewater Warhawk) to another, I just didn't change it when I was informed that it isn't an issue anymore.
  9. A Gift - The Source Music (Thru the years)

    I'm glad to see many of you are enjoying the source music playlists I have created on YouTube. What has surprised me is the years that you have been listening to/watching. The top two were obvious since I had mentioned them during the season. However, the rest of the Top 10 years show a different story. The bottom 2 were even more shocking. 1) 2017 - 4,305 views 2) 2016 - 366 views 3) 1980 - 217 views 4) 1979 - 160 views 5) 1982 - 93 views 6) 1981 - 87 views 7) 2008 - 69 views 8) 1978 - 61 views 9) 2009 - 49 views (Another DCI Tie, really?!?) 9) 2013 - 49 views (Another DCI Tie, really?!?) BOTTOM 2 with no views 1973 & 2006 So what is your favorite year of the source music?
  10. The Cavaliers 2018, 70 years of excellence

    I just learned one of my students got a call-back. As a FMM, I couldn't have been prouder.
  11. The new site is slow and difficult. Lots of "500 Oops! page not found". Is FLoMarching now running the DCI site???????
  12. 2018 Show Announcent/Rumors?

    That is pretty big news. The question now is who benefits more on the release, The Cadets or the LB Foundation?
  13. A Gift - The Source Music (Thru the years)

    1972-1978 are now done. Enjoy!
