    BD is always so hit and miss for me. This years show has some great moments and then at other times is a head-scratcher. Right off the bat, they actually did a lot of moving all over the field and playing. Later in the show I really liked the attempt at the drum feature alongside the tablas-rhythm-speak voiceover (I can’t rememeber what it’s actually called). The hornline played some of cleanest runs of the night, ... and then at other times had some moments where the balance was weird or there was a slight hiccup side to side, or the tone quality changed (some definite, that was not what was intended moments). As far as show theme and corps achievement goes, it was off and on for me. That ballad was amazing though and by Indy it will be quite the crowd pleaser.

    Just got home, I figured I would take my time with my thoughts on SCV and BD. Disclaimer: Vanguard homer I wasn’t completely into SCVs show right away, but after a minute in, it just kept getting better and better. I wasn’t sure about the cream unis at first but I think they’re growing on me. The hornline really laid it down. Some of the soloist and small ensembles had some of the best, most virtuosic brass playing I’ve seen from a drum corps (the baritones were out of this world). Overall the cleanest hornline of the night. The show’s theme wasn’t all that clear the entire time but I was too busy drooling over the brass so I probably missed some things. Looking forward to seeing a finished show edit: also, I heard the scaffolding props are in their final state as far as it’s currently planned and they don’t intend to add to them.

    Blue Knights looking and sounding great. There are a lot of really dense chords and harmony they’re going for. I wish I was sitting farther away to get a better read on the louder sections (in the blast zone today). I’m a little unsure of the theme of the show, but their take on “Rite of Spring” is a refreshing take.

    Mandarin’s show has soooo much potential. It was great tonight, very dark, complex, aggressive etc. ”True Colors” ballad had a pre-recorded vocalist (I think). There was a lot of downtime for the horns, but when they came back in, a fantastic moment for sure. Most demand I’ve seen so far tonight.

    Yes! Sorry. They were very solid

    Acadamy’s show is filled with lots of great music and they’re doing a great job with it. I’m not sold on the voiceovers, it’s not always super clear how they relate to what I’m seeing and hearing. I really like how sharp the uniforms look.

    I enjoyed Trooper’s show a lot. Fairly traditional show for the most part. Lots of great moments. Brass are playing their book pretty well already.

    Scvc hornline/perc in slacks and red long sleeves. Uniforms coming in later I’d assume

    Unfortunately took longer to get into town than anticipated. Missed BDC and now watching SCVC from the gate.

    I’ll try to post some comments and maybe some pics here and there. I usually get too caught up in everything though.
  12. I believe his theory pertains specifically to a corps winning for the first time, not those that have in the past.

    SCV 2017 - 50 Years of Class

    Let's go Santa Clara!!! Regardless of tonight's outcome you've had a fantastic summer. A medal of any kind and potentially three caption awards makes for a great 50th. So proud, there's no place like Santa Clara

    SCV 2017 - 50 Years of Class

    I feel quite a buzz of energy from SCV as an organization this finals week. The corps is nipping at BDs heels, SCVC is finishing out strong, and the Alumni corps members are currently traveling to Indy for there semis performance. I don't think I've felt this presence, drive, and purpose from Vanguard in my brief time in the activity. Regardless of final placement, this is great year for the corps.
