  1. 😁 Fine, I'm happy with an all-Bruckner show music however I can get it 🔥
  2. After reading everyone's comments, I had to repost mine with some. I really like the diversity of answers. 1. Bluecoats - the musical arrangements were stunning, and the costuming was fantastic. Immediately goes on the All-time Favorite DCI Shows list. 2. Crown - I think they should have jumped SCV, personally. A little bit "old school" drum corp, delivered with Crown precision. The company front near the end was awesome, and the cross-field ballad duet was another gem. 3. Blue Knights - It finally occurred to me that BK has crept into my favorite corps list. The have carved ou
  3. Post your own opinion, and its not wrong! Truthfully, I enjoyed every show I watched. I have much respect for everyone involved. My personal enjoyment rankings: 1. Bluecoats 2. Crown 3. Blue Knights 4. Crossmen 5. Vanguard 6. Mandarins 7. Blue Devils 8. Cavaliers 9. Boston 10. Phantom 11. Cadets 12. Blue Stars Ah, I feel better now.
  4. Bloo's show is one I'll watch many more times fondly. It is a classic.
  5. Can anyone tell me where Crown posts their pictures of the whiteboard with rehearsal schedule? I've looked on their Facebook page, Twitter account, and Instagram. I'd like to look at some previous schedule days to get an idea about tomorrow's schedule at Kell High School, in addition to knowing where to look when/if they post their schedule tomorrow. Thanks in advance! UPDATE: Duh! It's on their Facebook page, but I was scanning quickly for pictures of whiteboards, not these fancy pictures 😃
  6. I love the guard, probably my favorite of all shows. Drums and brass sound really good. Show concept is not over my head. Check. My only compliant? I just don't like the Goliath character. *shrug* I think I'd like it better if Goliath was introduced at the beginning of the show doing something to make the audience root for his demise. Then goes away for awhile, then brought back out at the end for a battle, then death. Hopefully that sounds like constructive criticism. The improvement BAC has shown in 3 years is amazing.
  7. I rarely like it, but there are cases when its done well. Bluecoats this year and last year Boston Wicked Games Maybe a few other exceptions, but those come to mind.
  8. I saw PR's show last night in Georgia, and their show has MUCH improved from the opening night. Brass is getting its legs and the show had 4-5 nice hits. And a cool part with trombones that was dark and the highlight of the night for me. The "I AM JOAN" part is gone.
  9. Nice recaps, CrownDad. I was at the show, so I thought I'd add a couple impressions: Spirit has a great show design. The second piece is a challenging brass number that needs to get clean, but I've been told they made a lot of recent changes to that, so that will come I think. My brother is on the BoD and the state of the corp is healthy and the arrow is pointing up. From where they were 4 years ago to now is monumental. I'm not counting them out of top 12 yet. That said, wow, I don't know who spearheaded the changes to Phantom's show but they have cleaned it WAY up from opening nigh
  10. I'll be there cheering on everyone but hoping for a SoA victory!
  11. I wish I had the words to properly express how much I love this show. No matter where the final placement is it doesn't really matter. This is going to be an all-time fan favorite. I cannot wait to see it live.
  12. Bloo has just exploded my brain. That show was just ..... I’m st a loss for words.
  13. Phantom 1993 - Classic awesomeness by a classic corp Bloo Kinectic Noise - Distinctly remember the feeling I had during one point in the show where I was just overwhelmed by the sheer amount of motion coordinated on the field at the same time. Just magical.
