  1. If one wanted to get recordings from the 1970's and 1980's, who can we contact? I know there are some available through DCW but I also know of some out there that Ken Kobold recorded. I had some years ago but the tapes are no good any more. Help?
  2. I only went to Toledo for Key To The Sea in 1982 when I was on staff with Renegades (NY). Brady Rouse, Bruce McCready and I met George Zingali and chatted with him. Nice show too!
  3. So here's a thought.....are all corps in DCI AND DCA taking a look at their staff and management team? If I were a parent I would be calling for that! You can't tell me there are only 2 issues in drum corps! We all know things like this have been happening for years/decades!
  4. Wisdom teeth.....had mine removed when I was in the Army 1980. Didn't use gas just novocaine. Took the tooth out, gave me some Tylenol with Codeine and then, since I was captain of our volleyball team, I went to practice. Practiced hard and then dove for a ball, slid, bumped it and a bloody gauze flies out! LT asked if I got wisdom teeth out and I said yes. He just shook his head and we went back to practice. Tough it out!

    Other than Chops

    Don't you love starting a post and by the 3rd or 4th post they've changed the OP around to talk about something different? LOL SQUIRREL!
  6. As I said somewhere else.....This has just begun! Wait till summer hits.

    Why 1976?

    Thinking back....1976 was really a fun year! Lots of celebrations happening all over the country and being out of the Vietnam fiasco was helpful too. The summer for drum corps was just fun and if you don't agree (that's okay) something was wrong! We started competitions in May in Canton, OH the weekend before Memorial Day and then off to Michigan for 2 shows before heading home to 3 parades. We actually went to competitions in early June. I believe we did one or two shows after DCI finals in Philly.

    Been a Long Time....

    These were the days......weekend camp, getting the drill (almost done), bonding, meeting more new friends! Preparing to do a few Memorial Day Parades on that Sunday and Monday. In high school, I had to march with the high school then change and run to the end of parade to get in line with the corps. Then came June and Saturday shows, traveling on a school bus. Ahhh the kids today don't know how to rough it in drum corps! Sleep on the gym floor (WITH NO AIR MATTRESS!!!!) only way to call Mommy was to find a pay phone and reverse the charges. What to do on a school bus? No cell phones , tablets or laptops so we READ BOOKS< MAGAZINES, played cards (a real deck). Ahhhh those were the days!!!!

    Maybe bringing back War and Peace from the 70's! Since we have such tumultuous times now...what the heck!

    Funny the word "Blasting" came up! I was just talking to a student about my junior high teacher yelling at me for marching drum corps. "It's just blasting!" and "It will ruin your lip!" When I hear old recordings of corps I think he was right about the first statement! Compare to the past 40 years, drum corps has really brought out the musicianship in the brass players
  11. ...since anyone has posted anything about drum corps! Guess we are just "drum corped out!"
  12. So there is no doubt that Florida has a ton of talent for drum corps BUT not for a corps in Florida! In the past 15 to 20 years the state wouldn't support 2 DCA corps and they already have an Open Class DCI corps. The past saw Suncoast Sound, Magic, Teal Sound, Florida Waves/Vanguards, Floridians, Devil Dogs but that was so long ago.
  13. Still waiting on an answer about Teal Sound! I live here in Jacksonville, teach High School music and I haven't heard a word about this!
  14. Teal Sound? I live here and haven't heard a word about them. Who is taking this on?

    The future of the Cadets

    This may only be the beginning! I hope there is no more accusations in this activity BUT I believe it's been going on and, unfortunately, the climate in our country is such that more people will stand up and tell their story. If so it could be the downfall of drum corps. I hope that this was the only blemish and we can move on and let the law deal with GH. Pray that there are no more!
