  2. Will put it to you this way, had Crown been able to perform their 2020 book, I think the drum corps world would have looked at them a bit differently. It would have been a very engaging show with a lot of crowd interaction, very modern musical choices, and I think the music would have created an amazing canvas for what could have been done visually. The percussion opportunities would have been like nothing they have done before, with a lot of syncopated rhythms. It would have been Crown sticking to its roots of reinventing itself again, and I really believe the crowd would have loved it. Hopef

  6. She may not be educated to a high level about drum corps ... but her 1993 Star reaction proved to me that: 1. She's learning 2. She has very good instincts/intuition This was enjoyable.

  8. As one gets older, we learn to value and cherish friends, experiences, and traditions we recall from our journey. The historic Cadets uniform is one example. That classic look embodies excellence and the discipline required to wear it. It will be refreshing to revisit the aura of legendary CADET presence on stage again. Some things must not change, even in drum corps. Thank you, Cadets leadership. A very Merry Christmas to all !

  9. Even in the music industry "real world" this manifests every few years in the following statement: "Jazz is dead, man." Then, somebody comes along to literally blow that fallacy out of the water. In the '50s it was Brubeck and Cal Tjader, in the '60s, Maynard (and do not even think of dissing him in my presence) and Herbie, in the '70s', say hello to Chuck and Chick. Later we get Cobham (drum corps alumnus, like Corea), Spyro Gyra, Yellowjackets, Weather Report, Wynton...the d@mn thing just won't die. Don't fret. We'll hear and see it in D&B corps again, sooner rather than l

  10. I think we've seen evidence that vaccine roll-out is going to take longer than expected. Add to that the political upheaval in this country and the financial consequences of the COVIDF-19 outbreak, 2021 is probably not going to happen. I would be much more in favor of the drum corps world observing another year in pause and looking toward 2022. Not that this is something I want, but I would rather then drum corps world make a more slow, purposeful return. But i'm probably in the minority on this.

  11. Jazz requires A) feel....and in todays metronomed to death DCI world with crazy visual requirements....it's a challenge many don't want to take. B(....melodic development can often take longer than the current design trends allow for.

  13. I think the announcement also said they were switching from Demoulin to Stanbury Uniforms. I doubt they’re using anything in storage. Sounds like they are getting new.

  14. People thinking this is a "gift" to fans rather than a way of saving money by using uniforms they likely have stored away from the early 2010s for an unlikely 2021 season ... They'll be back to the current trends once the activity/organizations have recovered.

  19. My wife just got notified that she can schedule getting vaccinated. Originally she was going to wait. She's a visiting nurse and has a number of covid patients. So she decided to get vaccinated. Her first shot is 12/29. Hopefully no major side effects.

  22. 2010 BD is a good example but the naysayers don’t mean “that kind of jazz”. I love that they totally threw down and rubbed it in everyone’s face. Yeah, I’m petty that way. Lol

  24. It's been awhile DCP 😅 Watched The Umbrellas of Cherbourg on Christmas for the first time......good lord Michel Legrand. How has I Will Wait for You only been used twice??? Totally forgot BD used it in 2008. Would LOVE to heart that used again, broke my heart at the end of that movie. Incredible score, been awhile since one has hit me like a freight train like that. The way that theme evolves from happy and youthful to melancholy and bittersweet at the end is just.....wow. Favorite movie I've seen in awhile. Anyways, I want to hear that on the field again.

  30. I marched from 1981 to 1984 and my uniform was from the early 60's. It took about 8 safety pins to hold me together.... and a lot of baby powder when we went down south. But those unis were the thickest wool ever made for a uniform, not like the fabrics in the band uniform industry now.

  36. I like her. She has found her reaction video fans which is drumcorp fans. So many reaction videos on YouTube so it's hard to separate one from another. I actually think she likes what she sees and makes some $$ from her likes and viewers.

  38. My wife is a "front line" visiting nurse. No indication yet when she will be in line to be able to get the vaccine. In N.J. at least, after health care workers, come Long Term Care patients and staff. Then first responders. According the local news a vaccine won't be available to the "general public" until at least late Spring. I presume "young people" will be last on the list. According to the news this morning, Phizer is already having "supply chain" issues. Until there is a more specific time frame for the vaccine being available, how can a corps
