  1. Hi, everyone, before I get to my next match up episode, I wanted to take some time and talk about uniforms in DCI. Uniforms have been around since the birth of the marching arts. However, starting in 2016, a movement began. The Bluecoats won their first championships wearing costumes that were customed designed. When the Bluecoats made their departure, other corps followed the same path. In 2017, The Santa Clara Vanguard, The Blue Knights, The Cadets, The Madison Scouts, Gold, Southwind, and The Guardians made the move to costumes. Seeing this movement makes one wonder how long do traditional uniforms, ( shakos, plumes, jackets, and pants ), have until they cease to exist in the Drum Corps World. When looking at the costumes themselves, they have both won championships and lost championships. In the 2016, The Bluecoats won their very first championship wearing costumes. However, the following year in 2017, The Bluecoats, The Cadets, and The Blue Knights finished lower than they did in 2016. On the flip side, The Santa Clara Vanguard and The Madison Scouts finished higher than they did last year in 2016. Santa Clara Vanguard managed to climb up all they way into the top three for the first time since 2004 and The Madison Scouts made it back into the finals after finishing 13th in 2016. For the Open Class Corps, The Guardians, Southwind, and Gold became the first open class corpsnto wear costumes. The movement of using costumes has spread to both the World Class Corps and the Open Class Corps. In my opinion, I like uniforms and hope that they stick around in drum corps. Now, in this thread, please post below what your thoughts are on uniforms and costumes in DCI.
  2. ...a section for discussions about SoundSport and Drum Line Battle? It seems that these organizations are growing in leaps and bounds and are also helping to grow the Open Class division of DCI. I think it would be very beneficial to all corps people to have a forum to discuss these two organizations, new groups developing, etc.
  3. Two Friends of DCI tickets in Section 140, Row 21 (top row of section 140, handicap section is right behind this row. Can stand up to watch corps on the field and not block anyone's view), Seats 5 and 6 are available for Quarter and Semi finals. This section is on the 50 yard line, so you get both great site lines for watching drill and still get your hair blown back with brass! Asking face value for the tickets: $59.00 for quarter finals; $79.00 for semi finals. If interested please post your contact information so that I can get in contact with you.

  11. corps boxes in signature

    so, sorry to be such a "Noob", but I keep seeing little rectangular boxes with specific Corps' Logos and colors.... and I want to have them on my signature too! I marched a corps last year and have 2 that I like/ want to march in the next 2 years before I age out. :) any help is appreciated! (so long as it's not condescending) :)
  12. A recent thread in this forum asked about whether a map of corps' tour stops was available online. I had built a similar feature for Pacific Crest's website (as their webmaster) and had experience with the Blue Devils Tour Map feature that they've had in place for some time. Each of those pages provide information for the specific corps - but nothing I'm aware of provided tour stop information for ALL DCI corps ... until now. With the TREMENDOUS help of our very own "Garfield", who first expressed the desire for the feature in the thread above, we've put together a 'Tour Map' that allows you to select a particular corps and have its tour mapped for you. Each stop includes information about the venue location, as well as the other corps expected to be at the show. Once scores for the event have been loaded in our Caption Ranking System, we'll remove the schedule and provide a link to the score recap. My thanks to Garfield for taking on the task to assemble the data, while I was getting the code whipped together. We have ideas for future enhancements ... so continue to follow-along. You can access the Tour Map by pressing the "Tour Map" link in the menu at the top of this page ... or by directing your browser to http://www.drumcorpsplanet.com/tour-map. Enjoy! -john

After graduation, he studied Dance at Orange Coast College (Costa Mesa), Mt. San Antonio College (Pomona), Grossmont College (El Cajon, CA), with the Gloria Newman Dance Theater (Orange County), & with Shirley Jenkins at the University of Washington (Seattle). In 1989 Andy joined the Seattle Men’s Chorus (SMC) singing on their first CD, appearing on PBS specials, and performing at Boston Symphony Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York City. He shared the stage with SMC’s special guests Natalie Cole, Bobby McFerrin, Dianne Schurr, Harvey Fierstein, & Maya Angelou. Andy has performed with the Seattle “R.O.T.C.” Colorguard (1987-1997) in SMC Concerts, in New York City’s Central Park, and at the Stardust Casino in Las Vegas. He celebrates over 30 years of performing at “R.O.T.C.” events in New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Long Beach, and Seattle. More recently, Andy has been in San Diego where he attended Dance classes at CoSA – Coronado School of the Arts (through Southwestern College), as well as performing a self-written Dance/CG solo with Rifles (at one point juggling 2) in the 2012 CoSA Spring Dance Concert. That Autumn he attended Grossmont College where he studied Dance and performed in both the Student-choreographed and the Faculty-choreographed Dance Concerts. In 2014 City Sound is ecstatic to have Andy as part of their staff all the while creating one of the most exciting color guards in Southern California. Andy’s massive professional dance experience and WGI teaching experience, will definitely give City Sound the visible projection need to be a sound contender this 2014 season. We are proud to let everyone know that Andy Cross is coming to City Sound as the new color guard instructor. Sincerely Nathaniel W. Lewis, Executive Director City Sound Drum and Bugle Corps http://www.City-Sound.org

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE http://www.city-sound.org Contact: Nathaniel Lewis Tel: 323-228-7231 email: nlewis@city-sound.org “Murray Gusseck” 2014 PERCUSSION ARRANGER FOR CITY SOUND DRUM AND BUGLE CORPS Murray Gusseck is considered an innovator and trend setter in the world of marching percussion. He has been a musician since the age of 7 when he studied piano and violin. At age 15 he took up playing the drums and has been performing in bands ever since. Murray made his mark as a teacher and composer with the Santa Clara Vanguard Drum & Bugle Corps, of which he has been both a performer and instructor for almost 20 years. He became nationally known for a unique compositional style, a signature sound, and a propensity for achieving a smooth drumset-oriented approach to this musical genre. Murray helped start Tapspace Publications in 1998 with friend and partner Jim Casella. He is the author of Parking Lot Etudes and co-author of Fresh Perspectives For The Modern Drumline, both of which have grown to be mainstream publications in the world of marching percussion. Murray attended San Jose State University in San Jose, CA as a music major specializing in world music. In 1998 he joined up with schoolmates Nima Rezai and Dan Heflin, and friend Chip Webster, to form "Merge" an eclectic world fusion quartet consisting of Chapman Stick, saxophone, keyboards, and drums. The group toured and performed in northern and southern California for several years, producing their self-titled CD "Merge" He has taught and/or arranged percussion music for many top high schools and winter percussion ensembles throughout the country. Currently Murray lives in the Portland, OR area where he helps manage Tapspace and plays drums locally. He is sponsored by Pearl Drums, Remo drumheads, Zildjian cymbals, and Vic Firth drumsticks. With the newly formed 2014 City Sound Drum line, we feel Murray’s percussion arrangements are not only vital for the new un-conventional 2014 show, but sonically on the cutting edge of percussion charts arranged just for city sound. We here at City Sound are all extremely excited that Murray is part of our staff. Sincerely Nathaniel W. Lewis, Executive Director City Sound Drum and Bugle Corps http://www.City-Sound.org
