  2. Instead of starting a new one, why not join the established group already there, Souns Brass Theater (winners of the Atlanta SoundSport show)?
  3. Congratulations to the Kidsgrove Scouts for winning DCE today!
  4. They ended up merging with Tampa Bay Thunder (and kept the KK name). If I remember correctly, they had camps in preparation for the 2006 season, but didn't have the numbers to make a go of it. I think we ended up with a member or two from them in 2006.
  5. Sonus Brass Theater, a program offering of Shenandoah Sound Drum & Bugle Corps, is currently at work preparing for the SoundSport season. We are currently casting performers in all sections especially low brass. There are open positions in brass, percussion, and electric bass/synth. Sonus is an all-age SoundSport ensemble in Northern Virginia. Low-cost & easy commitment level. We are planning on performing at several DCI shows this summer including DCI Finals in Indy!

  7. Correct, we won't be competing in DCA this year. We'll see what the future holds!
  8. When we decided to withdraw from DCA competition last summer, we knew it wouldn't be the end of us or the activity in Northern Virginia. So, I am happy to announce to you nice folks here on DCP that we are kicking off the first ever season for Sonus Brass Theater, a DCI SoundSport ensemble based in Prince William County, Virginia. We're really excited about the possibilities that SoundSport will provide us including the opportunity to perform at DCI Championships in Indy at the SoundSport event there. Our open house is March 8-please see our website or social media pages for more information Check us out on Facebook: Twitter@ SonusBrass
  9. After a show, give me a big plate of buttered noodles from the Pioneer cook truck
  10. @FloridaSun..I do all the Maryland recruiting since I live up here. @Jeff..No, we haven't. Since so many of the ACCs bands are from PA or NJ, most of the band kids would be outside our target area. We were going to do Chapters at South Hagerstown, but the band I teach has a show that day in Annapolis.
  11. I will be recruiting for Shenandoah Sound tomorrow (Monday) at the Frederick County Marching Band Festival at Linganore High School in Frederick, Maryland. All of the county's public high school bands will be performing in exhibition tomorrow night. If you're in the Frederick, Maryland area, come enjoy a great evening of marching band! Doors open at 5. Show starts at 6.
  12. US Bands has different size panels for different shows. At the show my band competed at last week, we had 4 judges: GE, Ens Vis, Ens, Music, Ind, Music. It's what's called a "silver" show. A full panel has two Overall GE, Ind Music, Ens Music, Ens Visual
  13. We were recruiting at a windy & cold band show in Leesburg, VA last night!
  14. I wasn't personally there, but the people who were at Woodbridge were happy with the turnout at our booth.
