    Yes, they were.

    Bluecoats and Thank You Scientist

    The Fugs!!!! They were awesome. Talk about "out there".... they were definitely around the bend, so to speak. I think my brother might still have one of their albums. In the 1970s into the 80s, there was Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band, a blues-rock-alternative group from the Washington, DC area. They had quite a following for a while. Their hits included "Boogie 'Til You Puke" and "Dare To Be Fat." Not kidding here. LOL I liked Root Boy and the band... but the group was an acquired taste, to say the least.

    NYS Drum and Bugle Corps HoF

    A New York Hall of Fame would be cool.... and as Xandandl says, Long Island (and NYC) would be a significant part of that, without question. Here in Maryland, we recently held the 20th annual induction ceremony/banquet for the Maryland Drum and Bugle Corps Hall of Fame. A lot of drum corps history, and its fair share of well-known corps and people, in a relatively small state.

    If I get to a camp in Oxford, I won't divulge any show details.... but from experience there I can tell you a place where you can get some really good pizza, and another spot in town with terrific craft brews. I hope that doesn''t stir up anything online.

    The Cadets 2019

    If I get to a Cadets' camp, I probably will do the same. Without signing a waiver. LOL. Because if I said "Cadets have the best horn line I've ever heard from them... drum line should go undefeated... and the guard would win WGI IW".... then perhaps only a few folks would believe me.

    That's what gets me, too. Do those folks sign a waiver or something....LOL

    WGI & FloMarching

    Well... that certainly wasn't the case with my junior corps.

    WGI & FloMarching

    Good question. Not excusing any corps for this... but back in the Stone Age when I got started with drum corps, it was not uncommon for corps to knowingly have overage members. Including the junior corps where I marched. I have no idea why corps did this.
