A Drum Corps Fan's Dream Part Tres

Recommended Posts

I wonder what would be included in a drum corps fan's dream, part tres. Now that it's been over 20 years since the original and part dos. What songs would a corps do and who would you want to do that kind of show?

I was under the impression that modern fans don't care for songs, recognizable tunes, or anything so quaint. Perhaps just a "medley" of exercises culled from the Herbert L Clarke method book?

I kid. Sorta.

Well of course I expect to hear some Nickleback mixed in with the loud Latin jazz. Figured that went without saying. :tongue:

Crossmen '92...that's all!

Actually, I'd love to hear a modern arrangement/take on that classic show.

As much as I'd like to hear actual music on the field today, I do sort of wonder if it wouldn't end up sounding like a Phillip Glass arrangement after being filtered through the design-by-committee process of modern corps.  I'm reminded of any number of those "_____corps modernized" videos on YouTube, and I'm sure there's one for 88 Scouts.
