    Staff Merry-Go-Round 2019

    When falling out of the Top 12 also means breaking the third-longest Finals streak in DCI (and the longest by a corps not from California), I’d say that’s a bit of a problem. I have a feeling we’ll be welcoming a certain corps that likes the color baby blue back into Finals over Phantom in 2019.

    Reference in SCV 2018

    The company front in the closer, where the two guard members separated at the beginning of the show are reunited, always reminds me of a similar move from their 2004 Scheherazade show.

    Pioneer/DCI Update – September 12th, 2018

    Well, I'll just say this: How he wrote this message to the public is infinitely more professional than a certain former executive director we know. I would still prefer that they start back up in Open Class after taking next season off to recuperate and rebrand.

  5. The fallout over the Oregon Crusaders organization continues as their indoor drumline, OC Indoor, will be going inactive for 2019. https://www.facebook.com/oregoncrusaders/posts/10160843280900162?__xts__[0]=68.ARAsxg93VXut200ALinK3y3RFypycwy6IfKE0NHrjKSHhEfV0b5Cp6QOhAvdAlydlvnf9qfJ3Rl3UYYrdO8hLuh2_WEFM5tpuTmJNNSSU4jCwDHZ78MUbCOKsOWsO_aws5sTrOTSN_5SG7ajIMgI1gfbKVODR34JdOB7mCbu-oULTVRXQSeGUfg&__tn__=-R

    Crossmen 2019

    Hearing from Reddit that the Crossmen have decided to cut their cymbal line. :(

    Best Reprise Closer?

    One not mentioned yet is Crown 2013 - I was lukewarm when they first added the Also Sprach reprise, but it really grew on me and I loved it by the end of the season. Phantom '03 is the epitome of the reprise closer, though.

    Pioneer News From the Top – September 8th

    I really meant that he is just still in some way tethered to the Pioneer image through the likely notion that he continues to write their news blurbs despite his imminent resignation.

    Pioneer News From the Top – September 8th

    I'm sorry, but at this point I'm ####### sick and tired of seeing Roman have any part in Pioneer's administration, even if it's been reduced to this role of writing news blurbs. The corps has been suspended, they won't be competing in 2019, and Roman has agreed to resign. The bed has been made, and for the good of the activity he should lie in it sooner rather than later. Speaking of administration, that part of the website has now been removed except for the words "To be announced."

    5 if you count Spartans and (if they get approved for Open Class next year) Arsenal. I have a feeling he’s going to leave at least one of the corps he wrote for last year.

    Genesis has announced their music designers for 2019, including the addition of Key Poulan as Brass Arranger: http://www.genesisdbc.org/creative-staff.html
  12. No corps is totally immune in this time of intense scrutiny of the activity. But I’m willing to bet that many recent OC members that hail from the PNW will be heading there due to all these circumstances.
  13. At any rate, I’m expecting a breakout season from the Seattle Cascades in 2019.

    Ignore

    It appears that Zach deleted his message from both DCP and Reddit. I can understand why, but at the same time it’s sad, because we’ve learned from the Pioneer fiasco that DCP and Reddit (especially the latter) can be used effectively as evidence of mismanagement at a corps.

  16. Finally found out what's going on at OC via Reddit and... Wow. Looks like Tricia has yet another corps to expose within the next month.

    Vanguard Cadets to remain on West Coast

    There was an email from Steve Barnhill that was screenshotted and posted to Reddit. He has resigned as Executive Director of SCVC and the corps will only compete on the West Coast in 2019.
  19. Decided to pull this quote from the "First Cadets, Then Pioneer..." thread to post here. As I expected, Roman is not going away too quietly.

    First The Cadets, then Pioneer, now Genesis

    Speaking of Roman, I decided to check Pio's website tonight out of complete curiosity, and noticed a few interesting things: The homepage has been updated from the letter that was there from about a week or so ago to a brand-new (as of yesterday) "News from the Top." Based on what I saw, I have a good feeling Roman wrote the whole thing, despite DCI having implied that he is out as Executive Director. Also, although DCI made it very obvious last week, the news update does not at all confirm that Pioneer will not field a corps in 2019 - it only says that they are discussing "conditions for reinstatement." And with one quick look at the Administration page, Roman is still listed as being Executive Director, and now has a short bio under his name (which may just be something that I never noticed until now). However, the "Board of Advisors" page is wiped out and listed as "To Be Announced."

    The "Music Corps Should Do" thread

    Speaking of "slow build" pieces that a corps should do, I recently discovered this relatively unknown song by Stevie Wonder that would be amazing if arranged well as a ballad/closer.

    The "Music Corps Should Do" thread

    And if their arrangement of "My Body is a Cage" this past season was any indication, they are very capable of pulling off such a build. But that's just IMO.

    The "Music Corps Should Do" thread

    I was the first to suggest Gjeilo about 3 or so years ago. Since then, a couple of Texas marching bands did his "Serenity (O Magnum Mysterium)," and I know of a band from my state that did "The Ground," but no drum corps has ever touched his works. I also particularly enjoy his "Meridian" and "Sanctus."

    The "Music Corps Should Do" thread

    The only corps that I can see pulling this off are SCV and BK.
