West Chester Work-it-Out

Recommended Posts

Should be a great night. New endings, one a debut, others getting cleaned.

I have an interesting social experiment happening tonight. On one side I'll have a few friends that have become big fans of the activity in the last few years, and this will be their first time seeing a show live. And on the other my 77 year old dad. He started as a fan in the 60's in his Army Band days. He would wake me up in my young years to come down and watch the finals on PBS in the late 70's. Followed me around in the mid 80's through high School Band and my brief Drum Corps career. And we would attend Allentown together for a bunch of years. His last live show would be back in '89. Will be interesting to see his impression of it now with the amps, mic's, narration, vocals etc... He's never been that "old way was better" type of guy. So I'll be curious to hear the results.

This became a very big show when Warrenton, VA had to be cancelled. I was so glad to hear that several of the corps scheduled to be in Warrenton tonight were able to be added to West Chester.

I wish I could be there. However, Allentown is only two days away and I will be there for both days.

Good luck to all tonight with the new endings.

If you're going, avoid the stress and GET THERE EARLY ! This show is always a bit congested and with 3 extra corps and a smashing line up, it will surely be extra congested.
