  1. True story Early 90's while I was director of Rochester Crusaders, Scott Shyne had an amazing middle voice solo... at DCA championships - after our performance but before retreat, Ziggy found Scott and complimented him on one of the best mellophone solos he'd ever heard... he then promptly handed Scott a brand new Kanstul Mellophone and says it'll sound better on this... I'm sure Scott still has that wonderful instrument. Drum corps owes a lot to Ziggy Kanstul...

  2. I like that. Good repackaging, garfield. Minimalism is an accepted form in music (and other arts, under different names). It would be nice to see more of it in drum corps: elegant rather than elaborate responses to artistic challenges.

  3. I'm absolutely convinced that 1. you're correct in your assessment, and 2. current designers are more enamored (squirrel!) with the shiny new toys and utilizing them to proactively hide poor execution and gather points from bedazzled GE. Some think that there should be no limits at all on anything except show time (winking at you MikeD), but I believe that limitations, either natural or imposed, inspire creativity. SFA's performance above is spectacular because it doesn't rely on props or other "crutches" to make it so. It's just great design, taking advantage of wonderful uniforms style, i

  4. And, for the opposing viewpoint, we present Stephen F Austin. Don't need no stinkin' pedal carts here! One of the most beautifully designed guards-without-flags I've ever seen, that's for sure. They just jump off the field. And the winds and drums - oooh-la-la - tasty!

  10. The question was recently asked about the presence of a DCA Corps in Texas. I can't definitively answer that question, but I can tell you that All-Age Drum Corps in Houston is alive and well once again now that Bayou City Blues is back. To avoid a long discussion of internal politics, let's just keep this simple: Bayou City Blues turned into Gulf Coast Sound for a decade and now the name has been changed back. BCB is not a part of DCA and likely won't be due to logistics, finances, and geography. We learned a few things during the GCS years. DCI SoundSport is a viable, local alternative and
