  2. A week ago at the Winston-Salem show I sat in the blast zone, after a certain corps performed I turned to my friend and said that I thought it REALLY sounded like they had individual players mic'd all over the field, in addition to their way too hot soloist mics. Interestingly this happened to be the only top 6 corps that I haven't seen mentioned by name in this thread.... bluecoats
  3. I still see the monthly option when I log into my currently not "pro" account. At least this year they kept the monthly price at $29.99. IIRC the last couple years they bumped it up to $49.99 just before the season started.
  4. According to BD's member page there was a Paul Chestnut that marched baritone in 2000 and 2002. (BD actually has a publicly available corps roster from each year on their website)
  5. They need to find a way to dampen the lids of the storage compartments in the props better than they currently are. The sound of those things slamming shut cut right through the hornline.
  6. I did make it out for ensemble tonight. A few thoughts.. -That beginning, yeah it's loud..though it's assisted. -It looked to me that the rain has put them a bit behind in the visual department in adding and getting forms cleaned up. Not a worry though, they'll get there. -The earlier poster who was not as hyped about Gabriel's Oboe, I agree. It's good but it's missing something. The flugel duet needs some reworking and balancing I think. -I really REALLY like the show concept. This is going to be their best show design in many years. I'm pretty sure I have it figured out based on the props and some of the pre-recorded voice. It may not be apparent to all on first viewing, though I think there is more to be added. I won't give too much away, but think along the lines of certain mathematical patterns and how they repeatedly show up in reality.
  7. The Friday show would be cool, but I think I may try to go Thursday if the weather cooperates. I live about an hour and a half away so driving that distance I'd like to watch ensemble for a couple hours.
  8. Anybody know when the corps will be leaving GW? Can't make the preview on Sunday so I'd like to make it out to watch ensemble one evening this week.
  9. Bluecoats 2007. Beat every other corps head to head that year and ended up 7th.
  10. I'm not sure I would say it's their best ever. SCV has had some fantastic shows in each distinct era of drum corps. But 99 is one of my absolute favorites. It's the show that took me as a teenager from "drum corps is cool" to being obsessed. I love the power and intensity throughout.
