    I tend to hate “deep” shoes with overt political/social statements so I’m hoping this is subtle the teaser videos have me worried a bit

    The Cadets 2019

    Cadets 2019 looking for 1 female theatrical performer for their 2019 program. Strong dancer. This is not a vocal performance role. Contact Adam Sage.
  3. Colbert does not appear to have writers, or at least talented writers... so they may have a shot!

    2018 DVD/BluRays DCI Champ Finals??

    I think the sound on the download quality is terrific. The YouTube version sounds compressed
  5. I actually liked both. In the case of Boston it really added to the story line of the program and in Coats case she was superb and it gave the program the jazz club type feeling it would have lacked otherwise I do agree (strongly) with the overall premise that it's 95% bad and frankly, unnecessary Drum corps as an instrumental idiom works just fine!

    Business Privilege Taxes?

    Nope. Just classic internet trolling, drop something here alleging a problem with zero proof of an actual problem. No drum corps, probably especially the Cadets, deserves this sort of trolling

    What is this, a fishing expedition?
  9. Man, you’re like my brother from another mother Your notes bring up so many terrific memories for me as well: 1. Zone. Everything about the corps was excellent. At semis I was sitting beside a somewhat salty old Cavaliers guy and when the brass had that first big hit I leaned over and said “this is what 99+ looks like” - a complete wow 2. 87 was such a display of artistic design (Zingali) brought to life with incredible marching and energy. I could easily but this first if 2005 weren’t so excellent across the board 4. I’m still angry about 2007 lol. I sat by a bunch of members on the plane home. They were in shock for lack of a better word. Stunned 5. Saw the 93 corps at their very first public performance, I couldn’t take my eyes off the battery and guard - the movement was stunning and just such a GE monster with a fresh moment or idea every five seconds. Just watching the corps in 93 was a cardio workout. The corps just reeked “champions” but then I saw star 93 and I wasn’t so sure. In the end I still believe the Cadets guard pushed them over the edge. What an incredible season that was with Regigment surging in third as well thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    Dude I just want the drill to be good. I don’t care or expect them to leap back into top three. Heck moving up one spot would be great

    Totally agree last year and the year before were compromised at best. Cadets need the best drill on planet earth. That’s the expectation

    Drew alluded to this in the video, saying the Cadets must be instantly recognizable as THE Cadets both in look and movement

    I just want some cool drill, so far I’m unimpressed. Needs some big wow moments imo

    Seems so an interesting interview with Drew, zero details about the program itself but you can hear brass playing Bridge over Troubles Waters in the background/ next room Drew essentially states that he’s is most excited about the improved communication among the design team and teaching staff, excited about where the brass program is for March, says them aim at increased competitiveness and mentions the focus at YEA at improving the core organization and all that goes in to supporting the corps. Sounds like the drill writing is underway and the design team continues to meet virtually each Monday
