Folks will either love it or they won't. Some will love it out of the gate. Some folks' opinions won't be changed. Many will be in for a real surprise. The first time drum corps viewer is sure to find things in it with which they remember and can relate.
I'm confident the design staff has created a fresh, new look and sound. Many alumni from the 90s will be watching this with a careful eye and optimistic heart. Of all the years of the corps, 1992 was the hardest working corps the Bluecoats put on the field. That show changed so much in one year. I think there were three versions of it by Finals. Given that 1992 was also Doug Thrower's first year with the corps, this is a touching and bittersweet way to show the growth of the corps and how far they truly have come
I liked Blue Knight's "Because" and I'm certain I'll like this year's production.
