    Madison Scouts 2018

    Yeah....like how about actually playing music at the beginning versus chatting and dancing. Wait, they can do that?

    Madison Scouts 2018

    I haven't posted on this site in a few years but I can't NOT say something any longer. The Madison Scouts have lost their way...and it makes me sad, angry, frustrated, hurt...among several other. I told my wife, I can't do Madison this year...she was shocked. I was never a Scout, but when I marched, I felt like I was. I know I'm old school....I get Drum Corps of today is different, most of which, I'm ok with. But whoever is running Madison right now should be fired for taking such a storied and TRADITIONAL franchise and trying to make them something they aren't. They are barely beating the Colts and likely won't make finals...again. Their scores are a joke. I don't necessarily like what SCV is doing as of late, especially losing the hats and changing the uniforms to not looks much like traditional SCV, but at least they are good and whoever is running the Org is trying. Madison on the other hand... Wanna know who the Madison Scouts are? Go to You Tube. Search Madison Scouts 2018, full show is there. But we don't need the full show. All we need is the 1st part which ends at 2:28. Listen to it. Where's the actual Music? Oh I hear some at around the 2:00 mark. This is your 2018 Madison Scouts But, they don't look or sound like Madison Scouts. Now....search Madison Scouts 1992. Listen to the first song...ends at 2:48. Listen to the passion...I don't care if there is errors in their musical ability or because they are playing G horns...LISTEN to it... Now, compare the two....NOT EVEN CLOSE! What?!?!? Madison plays music? YES! If you can't hear the difference, you are the problem.
  3. Look at SCV....all Professional. Love that. most others out of control. #oldschool
  4. Not done...but i'll 2nd the HS narration. Gotta tell a story with words today apparently.
  5. Not Madison....talk to the Judges. what a load of crap.
  6. Really liked the Crossmen's show!! What a sick ending!! They were better than the Academy or Madison.
  7. ok. 1st time I've seen Madision this year. to be fair, I am a Big Madison fan, so there's that. Here's what I think. 1. Now that....is a Drum Corps. Not too much narration, sorry Boston fans, hated that show, all that crap makes me tune the rest of the show out. What a show Madison. 2. Almost zero props on the field. Like that because they actually did all kinds of old school drill. However, this hurts them badly with the scores. They aren't in the same category as the rest of the Corps in that regard. 3. Classic Madison, which I love, but...the judges have seen Classic Madison one too many times. Sure, if they executed it better, they could place as high as 8th...maybe, but they don't so the score reflects. 4. Love the JCSS and Lady Gaga JUDAS mix at the end. Good stuff there. 5. I think 2 and 3 just kills them. 6. I'd love to see a good staff take over and propel them back into the top 5 again...I can dream.
  8. Did he just say World Class???
  9. DANG!! Blue Devils B are ######!! Love that Drum Solo just now
  10. If more of the big boys played....as I stated earlier...they could have their own class. Imagine 5 or 6 really good "B"/Cadet corps competing against each other. Id go see that.
  11. PC is just so ho hum for me. and they are dirty. what gives? last show of the year. no way they are beating SCVC after that performance.
  12. Thanks! Internal. Really wasn't interested in moving offices at this time. just worked out, right place, right time.
  13. Surprises me Bluecoats, Crown and especially the Cadets don't do this...would be a great way to grow Drum Corps
  14. really like SCVC...on another level. What's trippy is...alot of those kids could easily march for World Class Corps...like top 12 Corps, but they choose to march SCVC and BDb because the Org's are so good (trust me, been there). saw some kids crying at the end....good stuff there!!
