  1. I hope someone at the show posts actual sizes of the corps. Curious how they stack up against each other.
  2. Come on, I know they are out there! Check your closets and let's deal!!!
  3. Looking for King 2V Soprano Bugles in Silver finish. Please, PM me with info, pics, prices!!!
  4. Wasn't that hilarious?? I found that and posted it Saturday night after the parade. We were howling!!!
  5. Just when I thought it was safe to retire! Great news and best of luck!!
  6. We just got word that, since the concert following the parade is an SDCA event, it will be broadcast on the DCA Fan Network! Not sure if it will be live, but what the heck?
  7. 52 brass and 22 percussion at rehearsal yesterday! Next rehearsal is Sunday April 28th, 2-6PM at the American Legion Post 773 in Erie,PA. Check us out on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/groups/104040176299910/
  8. Another update...as of 4-2-13 @ 10pm...75 brass and 34 percussion. (15 mellophones).
  9. We are waiting for some confirmations...as of 12:00pm Saturday, March 30th...72 brass, 32 percussion, and still growing. Be a part of history, May 25, 2013. Happy Easter to all.
  10. I doubt it. Many are participating BECAUSE it's a one shot deal. However, the corps has been inactive for a couple of years and this might just jump start it again, at least on a local level. As I have been told by the management, "Baby steps"!
  11. There is still time to join us for the Perry 200 Grand Patriotic Parade and concert scheduled for May 25th in Erie. The deadline is fast approaching however. Payment for your uniform ($35 for shirt and cap) is due by April 14th. Join us if you can for this once in a lifetime historic event...71 brass, 32 percussion, and still growing. thunderbirds@erie.net or check us out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/104040176299910/
  12. Thanks for the info. I have found one and am in the process of getting it shipped.

  13. Congratulations on obtaining the services of Frank T. Williams! He is a very old friend of mine and a musical genius!
  14. Win,place or show, we always took a serious approach. We were out to win, but, we were also out there to ENTERTAIN. The entire show is a waste of time if there is no ENTERTAINMENT. As far as the OP and the tapes/critique issue: Is there a critique after DCA/DCI finals? I think not. It is the last competitive performance of the year and, as such, gets no critique. Kudos to all of the mini-corps, serious or not. I am sure you all gave your best and the crowd appreciated it. Like someone once said, on the mini-corps stage in Scranton,"Have a beeeeah!" Oh yeah, that was me!
  15. Think we might have to do something about that.
  16. Sounds like good things going on in Cincy! Hope to see you guys somewhere this summer. Best of luck!
  17. Great to see you back in the game Mike! And, Tim is a dual threat as marching tech AND brass tech! Good moves by WS to bring both these men on board. Best of luck!
  18. I guess if this is controversial, "Blast" must just be AWFUL for the activity. (sarcasm off) Personally, I don't watch that show, but will definitely tune in if "Edge" is on! Best of luck to these fine drum corps ambassadors!
  19. According to various reports, the drumline was made up of percussionists from the Indianapolis area, not just one particular school/university. Besides, I don't think Indiana University has a drumline quite that large!
