  1. I really hope the guard can grab that trophy on Saturday. I started in '03 when the new staff came to rebuild Crown. To see Michael Townsend's choreo become fully realized and cleaned to near perfection is such an amazing thing to witness this season.

  2. Can you imagine the mocking that would be hurled at them if they did go back (and rightfully so, given the hype they built up around the change)? Honestly, it's absolutely the right thing to stick with the change, for good or ill.

  3. I'm still rooting for the Cadets to pull it off. Still feels weird, but there you go. :) Honestly, though, it's the first year in a long while where I will be happy with the results no matter how it shakes out - I'm a huge fan of all of the top 4 contenders. On a side note, this has been one of my more favorite threads this summer, as the Cadets folks have been so enthusiastic about the corps and the show's twists and turns . It's been fun to read, especially as a lot of the corps threads... um... have been ... less... positive about their corps. Anyways, it's nice to get a reminder some

  5. I love the fact that our son gets to age out with the Cadets this year with this show and this awesome setting. Couldn't ask for a better scene than this one coming. Congrates to the Cadets and all the Corps. Its been a great year !!!

  7. Hey DCI: is it really too much to ask that you throw up at least a single high camera and microphone to cover the Open Class WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS on DCI Live!?!?

  9. Marching members of the Modern Era realize that Saturday, August first is the simultaneous triple birthday of Gino (brass caption head), Colin (percussion head), and of an aged out horn sgt. who hasn't been heard from in too long. Well, at the Bethlehem rehearsal Saturday just before ensemble, Gino went to continue the routine with the brass line, the DM asked for a moment, and then beginning with several cross field soloists the hornline moved Gino to tears as they surprised him with a symphonic full line brass rendering of "Happy Birthday." Said the master to the faithful, "That was so a

  10. I think this amazing show which still is amazing would be even more amazing with those cream pants highlighting that wonderful marching technique and stellar Cadets drill. Bring them back for INDY. We all respect you for taking risks but we'll love you more for going back!

  15. Fine I'll play then. I hope City of Light is the last PR brass book I hear written by Don Hill. I haven't enjoyed a single show he's written. Ironically, I am infatuated with EVERY SINGLE PR show musically from 02-2011. My vote for replacement goes to Frank Sullivan. I've enjoyed most every show he's written. You can't watch this and not think he'd be great for phantom! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qc1bsIXVlDs also if they get a program coordinator who has a clue, that'd be great. Programming has been... not great...even frustratingly bad, as of late. ---- Cavaliers: I would love to s

  22. All history aside, I don't know how you can say that the admin has no interest in building a strong percussion line after the numerous moves they've made since 2010 that indicate the contrary. They have been lucky with a consistent core guard staff and brass staff, both of which have grown and changed considerably, but have seen the same key figures at their respective helps since... 2003? They're still looking for that magic in the percussion caption.

  29. Please respect my opinion here, but I think Phantom needs to find a new program coordinator. I just think that their shows, while always performed with the typical Regiment flair, lack the "oomph" needed to win a championship.

  30. I don't want to sound like Channel3 here but it just doesn't add anything. It dumbs down the show. When I think of "City of Light" I think of the beauty of Paris, not the shopping destinations.

  31. Yea, when I was there the schedule was different...almost everyone was there in January, and we did two camps each month, plus Sundays and Wednesday night sectionals. They don't do that anymore, but with the extended spring training, the net result is the same: Champions are built before you ever get on the bus.

  33. Why don't you take it up with the high school kids on Facebook rather than using it as an excuse to (yet again) bash Crown fans here? That way you can get your point across and maybe they will get it as they will be hearing it from someone on their own maturity level.

  40. Beautiful night. Plenty of help at the ticket window. Everything running smoothly. Constant flow of cars into the lots. SCV just pulled in so I think we've got all corps here now. This is going to be a great night of drum corps. Phantom Regiment kicking things off in an hour!

  43. BRASSO is in the wrong here... He's just mad that someone noted that his synopsis was an excellent, detailed, and well thought out explanation of the caption in 1980 but terribly incomplete to its usage in 2015. Then, when he had nothing else left to grab at, he chose to bite into the fact that the other poster didn't list every single thing evaluated (to include percussion) as some sort of validation that is analysis WASN'T terribly incomplete to today's definition. The fact of the matter is that BRASSO isn't WRONG. His post is just so filled with minutia when there are "bigger fish to fr

  44. Just weighing in after 223 pages of posts. This year's Crown show is one of the greats of all time. There is no need to go into details that so many others have already discussed. I just wanted to add my voice as someone who is pulling for Crown to win the Championship.

  45. I usually give you a pass. But that is absolutely RIDICUOUS. Seriously? Guess everyone is entitled to their opinion, but saying no one is deserving. Wow. That's a new one. I and MANY others see 3 - 4 shows that are incredibly deserving. I see one that continually finds unique ways to present themes and idioms in a unique perspective, one that absutely oozes with emotion and intensity, one that is just pure drum corps essence, and one that is in mine and any others, the freshest thing on the field in a long time. I guess if you wanna think that, fine. But wow. That's new.
