    Plastic Horns?

    I played one at Finals a few years ago. It was OK -- not great, but not a toy either.
  2. A 10-person cymbal line???? Works for me!

    Corps Style HS Band Spells Out Racial Slur

    Ah yes -- it's always the trombones. When I marched at NC State, when we played our Big Four rivals (UNC, Duke, and Wake Forest) at home, we'd spell out their name and play their fight song. The band director said it'd probably be the only time they heard it -- we marched 175 (all male volunteers -- we added the ladies a few years later) and the others had only music majors (maybe 80-100). And the difference in teams during that era. Anyway -- we were playing Duke and the 'bones were in charge of forming the "D" and you know where this is going. IN PRACTICE about 8 bars into the Duke fight song, the trombones changed the "D" into a "P". The band directors almost fell off the band tower. After they stop laughing and let the rest of the band in on our joke, we were STERNLY warned -- DON'T DO THIS AT THE GAME! Of course we didn't, but I don't thing any of us finished playing that fight song we were laughing so hard at what might have been.

    Just something really cool

    Since he showed recording the percussion, I wonder if he meant brass + battery. Even then, maybe a little short.
  5. I think Pioneer pulled it off pretty well without a BAC style flame prop IMHO.

    DCI survey

    It's just a hunch, but I wonder if local restaurants contribute to get listed in the survey? I really don't know. Yes -- there are far too many restaurants listed to visit even more than a handful and still have time for Drum Corps.

    DCI survey

    I usually get a survey every year probably because we go to Finals every year and I always fill out the survey. IMO ONLY: 18-year-old entry age limit. If we limit DCI participation on both entry and exit, I'm not a fan. It should be a parents' and members' decision when to start marching. And I told them that.

    Ah -- OK. I was think from more of a recruiting aspect. Thx!

    I don't follow your reasoning. OC might benefit being West Coast, but Nashville-based Music City? Or am I missing something?
