  1. Why did the guy in Troopers kick that orange cone up into the stands? 🙂
  2. Why the ads?!?! Why would some get the ads and others not? posted from the DrumScorps app
  3. I need some help if you can ... I’m having trouble with Flo Marching. I’m getting a dialogue box that says setup timeout error. Anybody experienced this before? I can log in on my phone no problem. I logged in last week in my laptop ... no problem. posted from the DrumScorps app
  4. BD still has MUCH work to do with that new set of horns ... intonation ouch! posted from the DrumScorps app
  5. Is that pepperoni pizza up in front????? posted from the DrumScorps app
  6. Great brass!! WOW!! posted from the DrumScorps app
  7. Are there now more groups without head gear than with? I suppose it depends on the theme and uniform/costume they’re wearing? posted from the DrumScorps app
  8. They had a female performer in 1972 and 2005 as well. I remember the Carmen show ... didn’t realize they had a female in ‘72. My question remains ... have they decided on going coed? posted from the DrumScorps app
  9. So Madison is now coed, or just using a female soloist? And if they have even one female, does that make them considered coed? posted from the DrumScorps app
  10. How was Shadow? I hadn’t tuned in yet. What part of WI are they from? posted from the DrumScorps app
  11. Ummmmm ... what happened to Minnesota Brass? posted from the DrumScorps app
  12. "Oh, and I really like the Rite of Spring, but Stravinsly is spinning in his grave right now after they butchered his masterpiece" You do realize they are not playing the Rite of Spring .... they are playing Brenzel's/Sebesky's jazz arrangements of the Rite of Spring.
  13. It sounds like Crown's show reaches you more than BD, which is fine. But honestly, when I watched Crown's show .... I didn't think what you thought. It was NOT crystal clear to me. But it sounds like you believe Crown's show is so much "easier to get". Different corps reach different people. BOTH are amazing. As a BD alum, I will admit that I stand and clap faster for Crown than I do for BD. But I don't try to read too much into that. In the end, although my heart bleeds blue, I'll be fine with any of the top four winning this year.
  14. But what moves you, might NOT move me emotionally .... and vice versa. And performers in many of the groups are investing their heart and soul into their performances. Some people really love opera or country music, and others prefer jazz or metal. It's not a cut and dry activity to adjudicate, and that's why I try to take things for what they're worth..... and that's people performing. My father played Dixieland every Sunday in Atlanta, and I used to LOVE going to hear him play. Then again, he played in the ATL symphony too, and while I enjoyed going, I would have rather been playing! My point being, people have different tastes and don't think it's as simple as saying some groups play technically proficient but with no emotion. I've heard GREAT groups play flat shows ..... and I've probably been in groups that did the same. For me, I connect with SCV, BD, Crown, and Troopers ..... probably in that order. Spirit on a good night would be thrown in the mix too .....
