  1. My son and I have been packing him up for the last few days. He can't wait to get there on Saturday. I'm extremely excited for him but sad to see him go. It is going to be a special summer in Crown land, I can feel it. I'll catch up with him in San Antonio and Indy of course. Here we go.....

  2. Going into 2023, I said "No way BD tops Moon River and Tank." They did. Coming into 2024, I said "No way BD tops Jojo and Joni Mitchell." Every time I think BD can't top what they previously did, they just say to me...........

  3. My daughter, a guard member was told the show announcement will go out 1 day before their 1st comp. She herself didn't know the show after going to April camp. They were only told slick greased hair will be style. She was supposed to be a 2024 cadets age out and lost her finals run with Amp due to severe illness. The kid has been through enough I just wish the best for her in SCV this summer.

  7. Crown can play the phonebook, but can they create a full-package show that goes head-to-head with this potential monster theme BD put together? History suggests not….but Crown took a step in the right direction last year. But seriously, even as a Crown fan, I’m loving this theme from BD again this year. High five to the staff that envisioned it!

  8. I was sad when they closed up shop. Louisiana Stars always put on a good show. I remember their season debut at Ft. Wayne in '15. People took notice! It was much like Music City grabbing our attention in '14. Louisiana Stars seemed to be on a similar path as Music City but the pandemic just sort of did them in.

  10. Blue Devils 2024: The Romantics “The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.” -Jean-Jacques Rousseau If Enlightenment was the age of reason, Romanticism was the age of feeling. A reaction to industrialization and the aristocratic social and political norms, Romanticism was marked by an emphasis on nature, individuality, emotion over reason, freedom of form, and an exploration of the unknown. From the late eighteenth century to the early nineteenth century, the revolution of Romanticism was the making of the modern mind. On a landscape of sound, shape, object and art, the 2024 Blue Devils present The Romantics. Elements of Romanticism are engaged through an eclectic soundtrack where past and present collide in dramatic form. The dynamics of motion and texture bring the individual into a living, breathing production as The Romantics celebrates the drum corps medium with intensity and passion. Embracing curiosity, imagination, and the desire to communicate, The Romantics sets course for the sublime. Romanticism gave people spontaneity, the chance to dream, to explore fantasy. The most important aspect, then as in now, concerns the nature of humanity itself: what does it mean to be human. This summer 165 extraordinary performers travel the United States as the Blue Devils bring The Romantics to Drum Corps International’s celebration of excitement and excellence. Eyes of The Romantics… Idealism Individuality Imagination Introspection Inspiration Isolation Immersion Incomprehensible "Though this be madness, yet there is method in't.” -William Shakespeare, Hamlet Music Includes “ROMANTICS WHISPER” -DAVE GLYDE “AND THE HEAVENS SHALL TREMBLE” -RUSSELL BROWER, MATT UELMEN “FABLE LEGENDS -TITLE THEME"-RUSSELL SHAW “MERRY-GO-ROUND” -JOE HISASHI "SHATTERED PIXEL” -DAVE GLYDE “GAME GIRL” -DAVE GLYDE “TIME” -BILLY PORTER “DISTANCE” -DAVE GLYDE “CAN YOU HEAR THE MUSIC” -LUDWIG GORANSSON “POOR THINGS” - FINALE AND END CREDITS -JERSKIN FENDRIX Arrangements by Dave Glyde

  13. Equality of opportunity? Yes. That is why candidates audition for a finite number of spots. Equity is simply quotas and affirmative action revisited. Since this political topic has been allowed on this forum, I will voice my opinion. Censor me if you will.

  14. I wished you well in another thread, still do, and you are being extremely unwise to promote any organization - or posting on social media - while a plaintiff in an active civil suit. Attorneys don’t play fair they play to win for their client! 2 of the 3 representing DCI and SOA are very formidable! They (outsourced) will scour the Internet and see your post promoting MASSIN. And in a couple more clicks they will see that besides being a whistle blower for abuse in our activity they are also in favor of “anti-capitalism,” “anti-imperialism,” and “anti-colonialism.” What does that have to do with your case? Nothing, but that’s not the point. The point will be to link and paint you in an unsympathetic manner to a potential juror not aligned with MASSINs political viewpoint. Depending on the district, judge, and attorneys, you may need a unanimous decision to win. Your attorney should have already told you all this. In all honesty, I wonder if you’re being exploited a second time to promote the agenda of others who don’t have your personal best interest in mind - but to promote a cause. I understand this has been an awful experience and you take no joy in it. Who would!? But you must be strategic about it if you want to win.

  15. And with the show announcement, I have officially come out of DCP hibernation. So excited for this show! Definitely a lot of symphonic and dramatic themes and glad to see some Joe Hisaishi, video game OSTs, and Billy Porter in there. I’m particularly excited about the Billy Porter because BD’s ballads for the past few years have been my absolute favorites. I wonder what their front ensemble instrumentation is going to be this year. With this theme, I wouldn’t be mad if a violin made its way back in. BD Family Day can’t come soon enough!

  25. Yes, I have found that piece very intriguing since I first heard it, along with the story as to how the composer was doubting whether the orchestra could actually play it because of the tricky tempo changes. Was glad to hear that the orchestra rose to the occasion, and am equally happy to hear it being used in this year’s BD production, however way it will be used. Normally I try and stay away from the repertoire of different corps, preferring to hear it first as it is delivered in the program and then later delving into the pieces post-season. However I might make an exception for this year.

  29. Ok that teaser with a voice reading Byron's poem was totally Bloo having Blake's Garden of Love read. That doesn't mean BD is going to have the narration woven through the show of course, but it just reinforces that feeling the BD and Bloo teams have been watching and learning from each other. Which is a good thing in my view.

  31. Yeap. It's been like that consistently for me too... I don't know what to say Lol... Did you hear the Oppenheimer piece. My gosh it's bonkers, this rep is insane.

To my shocking surprise here goes BD presentingt heir REp, low and behold there is the piece... I was like Uhhhhhhh!!!! shock but freaking happy. take a listen " Can you hear the music "

  39. When I lived in south Louisiana it almost always referred to as ‘the quarter’. Someone calling it the French Quarter or Vieux Carre was the sure sign that the person talking was a tourist.

  42. Sort of, but with less disgust. Many of us here are stakeholders both in Vanguard and the activity as a whole. All of us care about it. You don't have to care about it the same way I do. In fact, that we do so in different ways is actually a good thing. https://www.liveabout.com/stakeholder-2502118 I'm positive they agree with you. Good work. A great way to regard alumni. Nice personal jab. You claimed something false and I pointed that out. My legal name and rep are attached to this account. Anything positive you'd like to say about my corps to change the topic?

  47. Another tease but this time it's the Blue Devils official Instagram story instead of Scott Chandler.. Also they've changed their Insta profile picture to this actual teaser image here.. 👇 Profile Image I wonder if The Romantics glitch is a throw off ? Lol. IDK, just speculating even though it was confirmed to me from THE credible source... "Yes it's the actual title". Lets see though. This guessing game is fun Lmao.
