  3. Very nice review Tommy. I hope you will do it more often. I saw SCV tonight in Buffalo and they blew me away. I have always loved SCV, but tonight I probably saw the best corps they ever put on the field.
  4. Hey Benny, Jim says ask Pooh what happens when he hits those REAL high notes. ^0^ I don't even want to guess what he does, but with all those lovely ladies around him, he had a HARD time getting the smile off his face.
  5. Well, as an outside observer, I spent the better part of the 2 days at Renegades May camp last weekend. They are close to being finished with the field show. The design is much improved over last year. Full field coverage, which could tend to hurt them in some places. I noticed phasing between the baris and contras in Channel 7. Also some problems between the pods in Blue Sky. I am sure these minor problems will be resolved quickly. Brass is VERY!!! strong in all sections. Mellos and Frenchies are not up to last year's level (yet) but they are attempting to cut some difficult stuff I am su
  6. 88 posts to this topic and not one mention of St. Joseph's of Batavia Was anyone around in the 60's? I must be getting old.
  7. I have been harping on this very subject for 3 years now. I think the upper lead sops try to hit the highest note possible at the end of every number. Most of the time they never hit the note they are shooting for and releases are irrelevant. last year in their closer there were 6 or 7 leads trying to out scream each other and they must have hung over at least 4 beats after their feature. This is not only amateurish, It degrades everything the brass section is trying to accomplish execution wise. With all the talent the Renegades have, you would think they wouldn't have to resort to such tacti
  8. So tell me Chris, how did you like Boston? LOL Go Celtics %-)
  9. The reason Scott failed his hearing test is because I have to turn the volume up on the TV so loud, it drives everyone out of the room. I have played Baritone since 1959. I am currently in the process of getting hearing aids for both ears. I guess 8 years of working on jet fighters didn't help much either. Benny Wilt

  11. First off, I would like to thank all the groups that participated in the Classic this year for making this the best Classic to date. I didn't get to see very much of the show, but I will make a few comments on what I did see. The East Rochester Jazz Orchestra, Led by Ron Bowks, who is also the conductor of the Ghost Riders Mini Corps opened the show. This is a group of about 20 local musicians that rival most touring jazz groups. I only got to see about 2 minutes of their performance, but what I heard from this group was outstanding. Individual riffs were excellent in all sections. Remind
