  1. All time shows: Madison Scouts

    Favorites: 1995 - A Drum Corps Fan's Dream 1997 - The Pirates of Lake Mendota 1988 - Malaguena 1992 - City of Angels 2005 - The Carmen Project HMs: 2015 - 78th & Madison 1996 - A Drum Corps Fan's Dream, Part Dos Least Favorite: 2009 - Relampago (I mean, really, what the hell?)
  2. I'd say 2017 Genesis. It had the complexity of 2016, but without all the broody angst. I always seem to like Genesis better when they are light (2011, 2013, 2017 - and arguably 2015) more so than when they are dark (2012, 2014, 2016).
  3. I agree. It would probably be prudent for them attend their local home show tomorrow, withdraw from the Cape Girardeau & Metamora shows, go to their "other" home show in White Lake, & withdraw from the Waukesha & Sheffield shows. And then "only IF they have enough money to get them through Championships and back home safely with money to spare", should they attempt to go to Avon Lake, Michigan City & Indy.

    Although Golden Empire never made a public announcement of their 2017 show title, they have now competed in a few shows out west. According to the article about the DCI West show in Stanford, their show is entitled "Discovering Gems Within". http://www.dci.org/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=33500&ATCLID=211634961

  7. SCV 2017 - 50 Years of Class

    I'm just dying to hear Brandt Crocker try to pronounce it... "Presenting their 2017 program, Oingo Boingo..."
  8. Phantom Regiment 2017

    Yeah, that show is pretty legendary, especially for 1987. They slayed the Scholastic competition at WGI championships that year, nearly 5 points ahead of 2nd place.
  9. 2017 Programs & Playlist:

    I know you're just being facetious, but seriously, calm the **** down. Lol! The reason that Bluecoats was in the main part of the article is because they had at least announced their musical selections, and Phantom was included because their show announcement is going to be today. If you look at the very bottom of that article, it says: Other corps yet to reveal their 2017 programs online: Carolina Crown Gold Golden Empire Impulse Les Stentors Louisiana Stars Raiders Spartans
  10. DCI 2017 Open Class Programs List

    THE COLUMBIANS DRUM AND BUGLE CORPS IS PROUD TO PRESENT THEIR 2017 PROGRAM “DO NOT GO GENTLE”. IN THE POIGNANT WORDS OF POET DYLAN THOMAS “DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT…RAGE, RAGE AGAINST THE DYING OF THE LIGHT!” As we begin our program, a darkness threatens to extinguish the light within. The haunting strains of Edvard Grieg’s “Funeral March” woven over Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” darkens the stage as we transition further into turmoil through Elliot del Borgo’s “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night”. The Columbians bring to life the battle to hold on to what is light and good when external forces push toward darkness and destruction. An emotional transformation takes place with Samuel Barber’s masterpiece “Adagio for Strings”, and the victorious tones of “A Mighty Fortress” resonates within as we emerge from trials stronger and full of light! Join us on our journey in what is certain to be our most emotional and stunning production yet, with music arranged by Russ Newbury, percussion by Chris Grant, choreography by Kat Lagge and Anna Newbury, and drill by Dillon Miller.

    I don't really think 1998 was the tipping point. They were promoted to Division I in 1997 and were 19th place. They moved UP to 18th in 1998 and then made Semi-Finals the next two years (17th in 1999 and 16th in 2000). They dropped to 18th again in 2001 (although they received the highest score they'd had up to that point). It was really 2002 that they dropped into the 20's and stayed there.

    The Company has announced their 2017 show: All creative ideas start off being just a single thought. The process continues and the journey begins! In 2017, THE COMPANY are taking our own journey across the Atlantic to perform on the World Stage at Drum Corps International. This year’s production will have a sense of just that… a journey to something unknown, a place that we could only dream of! Our journey is taking us to tomorrow, a place that is whatever you want it to be! A place where life is almost perfect, everything has meaning and where your dreams become a reality. The musical arrangement features original compositions by Andrew Markworth, as well as Pat Metheny’s “Letter from Home” We all have an idea of what we want Tomorrow to be. For some it’s a lifetime away, but for us… it’s just around the corner!
