RIP CorpsReps (and introducing DCX)

Recommended Posts

Two decades after the website's founding, it would appear that corpsreps.com will be no more. Here is the official statement from founder Chris Maher, which you may have seen if you came to the website earlier today:

http://www.corpsreps.com/

In place of CorpsReps, Maher (with the assistance of those credited in his statement) has officially begun Drum Corps Xperience (DCX), a virtual museum dedicated to preserving corps history with regards to programs, photos and scores, dating all the way back to the 1930s in certain cases. I hope you all enjoy the website; it will obviously take some adjusting to get used to, but I knew that CorpsReps was in need of a visual update since I started looking there.

Many thanks to Chris Maher!   DCX Museum will be a valuable resource for many years to come.

I encourage everyone to enjoy the work of my late, great friend, Joe Provenzano. You will find him in the Drum Corps Art section.  So much of Joe's cartoon work from years ago is STILL relevant today. Some things never do change. You'll love it!

P.S.-  Joe's two favorite corps were Phantom Regiment and Santa Clara Vanguard.  He loved the magnificent, pure brass sound.

I'll miss the ease corpsreps had for searching old scores. This new one seems harder to do so.

I don't like the scores display as much as on CorpsReps but I'm guessing that will improve over time.

Lots of cool stuff on the website though. Nice to see the history of drum corps.

I know they don't have all the uniforms up yet.  I can't wait to see them all.

Seems to have pretty much everything CorpsReps had (albeit with a new arrangement I'm going to have to get used to) plus much more. Looks good!

Can't seem to find recaps, are they not there anymore?

Hmm. I didn't check that. (I usually use From the Pressbox for recaps.) It is possible, though cumbersome, to find at least some recaps (here's one, for instance) via the archive of CorpsReps at the Wayback Machine. I hope that information continues to be available on the new site.
