  1. To be fair, teal was always featured. They still looked like Teal Sound during a time where pretty much everyone was experimenting with different looks.
  2. Yeah I don’t see how he’s been doing it for so long. I would’ve had to take a year off to maintain my sanity. I don’t think some people realize that drum corps has virtually no off season if you work for one of the top corps. It’s gotten to the point now where some staff have openly admitted they started planing for next year’s show before the prior summer tour was even over!
  3. Fun Fact: the red bench from Crown’s 2013 production was borrowed from the campus of Gardner-Webb University and was originally intended to be a place holder prop while another bench was being ordered.
  4. What I’m interpreting from this is that they’re taking a page out of the Bluecoats’ book. If that’s the case, then I’m instantly less excited. There’s no way Crown does Bloo better than Bloo. Hopefully your source got it wrong.
  5. The thing about reboots is that there’re almost never as good as the original. In this case, the original was just “meh” by Crown standards. So I for one hope they stay far away from Rach Star 2.0.
  6. So Crown is looking for a drum set player and a bass guitarist for their 2020 production. Color me...intrigued.
  7. Sorry. I just don’t get the hype with cymbals. Pardon my ignorance, but it looks like they spend at least half their time on the field just doing random flashes. How does that add value to the show? Does the ensemble really benefit from their presence? I guess those questions are pretty much rhetorical since cymbal lines are disappearing from drum corps.
  8. Yes. My point though was that Lexington isn’t the most convenient place to get to. Irmo High School isn’t as new or fancy but it’s much less of a hassle getting there and I’m pretty sure the stadium is bigger too.
  9. Crown used to have a home show at the very beginning of the season. I wish they kept it but I totally understand why they can’t make that timeframe work anymore. I might be in the minority here but I wish they’d move their SC show back to Irmo HS. I get it, River Bluff is the shiny new toy. But Irmo is easier to get to for a greater number of people. Especially for people coming from out of town.
  10. Correct. And I feel like I get my money’s worth and then some. DCI, BOA, and WGI all for one annual sub is a #### good deal in my book. That’s in addition to all the other sports they offer.
  11. I know it’s cool to hate on Flo, and I’m NOT saying they’re perfect, but it’s probably the best/most affordable option we’re gonna have for watching shows. The Fan Network wasn’t sustainable and if memory serves correctly, the quality wasn’t really all that great there either. Again, I’ll be the first to admit that Flo has #### the bed on a few occasions BUT some of you take the b*tching a little too far. Let’s just be happy we don’t have to settle for watching a vertical Periscope video of a show with Nancy screaming “wooooooooo” every time her child does something cool.
  12. Yeah Pouncey is the new BD at Ashley Ridge HS in Summerville if I’m not mistaken. I can’t wait to see what he does with that program. The school split from a very strong Summerville HS band program a little over a decade ago so his cupboard should be pretty full as far as talent is concerned.
  13. Crown’s first home show is still in SC. In fact, it’s so popular that I wonder why they haven’t moved it to a larger venue. FWIW, with the exception of a few power programs in the Raleigh area, SC is home to far more excellent band programs than NC. York County alone (Fort Mill) is home to FIVE band programs that have won state championships since 2000.
  14. Depends on which side of the state line we’re talking about. Two totally different styles of BBQ.
