    2019 Show Ideas

    The Bluecoats can keep their zoot suits and pork pie hats. And instead of Bloo-ing, the audience (and MMs) will be clue-ing!

    Did he confirm whether he's not returning to Music City either?

    Staff Merry-Go-Round 2019

    It's a bit surprising that most of the people that we know are leaving so far are Visual Caption Heads.

    2019 Phantom Regiment

    You just hit the nail on the head here. I have not had a emotional, goosebumps-filled reaction to anything Phantom has done since maybe the end of their 2013 ballad. Meanwhile, the Boston Crusaders, for example, have given me more emotional reactions in the last two seasons than Phantom has given me in the last six. PR needs to start their design process by looking at themes and musical selections that can evoke a strong emotional response while also fitting the drum corps idiom. If anything they consider doesn't fit this criterion, go back to the drawing board.

    Staff Merry-Go-Round 2019

    He did a good job as their chief designer, as evidenced by how much "True Believer" grew this past season (they finished with their highest score since 2014). But the Colts are a really well-run organization that has made some smart hires in recent years, so I trust that they'll make the best choice possible in the search for their next Program Coordinator.
  6. I would not count Music City out of the next first-time Finalist conversation either. If they can build on their rousing success this year, they'll be a force to be reckoned with in the future.

    2019 Phantom Regiment

    I've been thinking recently about what Mahler pieces Phantom would play that they haven't touched yet (i.e. not Symphony 2 or 7), and this one came to mind. Parts of symphonies 1 and 5 would also be great for Phantom to use. (How have they not touched the famous Adagietto from 5 yet?)

    The "Music Corps Should Do" thread

    Even if not by BAC themselves, "Foreplay" would be a fun piece for anyone to tackle.

    The "Music Corps Should Do" thread

    Tell me this piece was not made for drum corps. I dare you.

    Never forget the time Jersey Surf brought Aretha to the field (literally).

    I've been looking forward to change after this disaster of a season for Madison, but this was not a change I was hoping for.

    This year was not the first time BD performed music made famous by the Queen of Soul. RIP Aretha.

    2019 what corps will wear

    At this point, I’m no longer concerned about what each corps will wear next year. The spandex/costume trend will only continue as long as it keeps the sponsors making money and happy. What I’m more concerned about is the spandex trend, already popular in DCI and standard in WGI, bleeding into fall marching band. How will band directors, particularly those that participate in BOA regularly (where GE is king), handle the continuing reach of spandex? If it does catch on, in which geographical areas will they be most popular? What about problems such as body comfort and parent/guardian reactions? Will the kids who passionately follow the marching arts be disillusioned by the growing homogenization of the activity they love, just as many of their elders who marched in the past do? I bet we will see the answers to these questions come about within the next few years, with many having short-term answers as the fall progresses.

    Staff Merry-Go-Round 2019

    IIRC, it's actually the day after Labor Day that's when corps are allowed to start making official staff announcements.
