    The Cadets 2019

    Brand New Day based off of Sting’s song.

    The Cadets 2019

    I’ve thought the DC area would be ideal for the Cadets. Lots of schools, plenty of money, access to major airports would make a rebuild much easier.

    Dirt, plain and simple. To trained ears, it’s as plain as day. Put Cadets next to Vanguard. You’ll understand then. It’s going to take a couple of seasons to get the standard raised to accustomed levels. Patience!

    I must admit that as far as singing goes, this is, by far, the best performance I’ve heard to date ever. Having quality voices really makes a difference. BTW, this show is miles ahead of 16 and 17. It’s very enjoyable, and for the first time since 15, I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next year. I would suggest an emphasis to improve guard and visual next season. It looks as though brass and percussion are heading in the right direction. I like the drill though the uni hurts the impact points. I hope everyone is as pleased as I.

    Agree, but they just don’t pop on the field. Same thing with the uni fronts with the stripes. It muddies the visual impact moments.
  6. Unless you were there to hear the music and see the performances, it would be hard to understand why the reactions are so different. The videos just do not do the older shows justice. The emotional builds were more effective. I’ll concede that today’s performances are technically superior, but the raw emotion from those vintage shows is hard to match. In some ways, today’s designers have lost sight of connecting to the audience rather than preaching to them.

    Top 12 All Time Shows

    1. Cadets 93 2. Cadets 87 3. Cadets 84 4. Blue Devils 86 5. Spirit 80 6. Madison 75 7. Star 91 8. Cavaliers 00 9. Crown 09 10. Bluecoats 14 11. Blue Devils 09 12. Vanguard 73 I tried to include shows that were my favorites as well as those I felt were transformative for the activity. For instance, Crown 09 is the year they figured out the formula to win. Vanguard 73 was revolutionary. I included Spirit 80 for its historical significance.

    All of us know what cost us the championships in those years. There’s no way we were beating Crown in 13, and the cringeworthy narration in 07 was just an embarrassment. Honestly, from 06 on, we didn’t understand what was needed to win. Our individual performance captions were excellent, but visual and GE...YIKES!
  9. I hate the Cadets’ costume. It does not show well on the field.

    That doesn’t make anyone culpable of abetting in You-Know-Who’s alleged lawbreaking. It just makes them a bad judge of character.
  11. Here’s how you answer someone who questions rifles, swords, spears, etc. Art imitates life. They’re not real. They’re meant to be a visual representation of the theme the designers are trying to convey. You need to lighten up and have a Zebra Cake.

    Yep, the most important task at hand is to clean. The show is fine. It’s a colossal improvement over the garbage foisted upon the members the past two seasons. It’s a good beginning to a new era.

    2018 Predictions

    I agree there will be a number of corps fighting for second place. BD’s show is a beast. Expect a spread by finals. It won’t be close.

    2018 Predictions

    I agree, and add the fact their brass is top 2 easily. I think their percussion is the weakest, but that’s just splitting hairs on my part. There may be a spread between one and two by finals.
