  1. Gotta admit though they know their moment and their audience. Kudos to those who go out and do great things for others.

    2019 Show Ideas

    I showed this video here a year ago in the show ideas thread. Bloo would be the most obvious corps to do this but someone like Music City or Scouts would be logical as well.

    2019 Show Ideas

    I’m surprised a corps hasn’t done something where the crowd participates in the show.
  5. I love their uniforms. Almost bought a retro jersey a few years ago.
  6. Their stadium is gonna be amazing. DCI should consider playing there.
  7. True but I don’t think it will impact the popularity of the Predators.
  8. I can assure you that almost no one in Nashville gave a rats ### about hockey 20 years ago. Now there is no doubt that the Predators are more popular than the Titans.
  9. I think there is a lot of wisdom in Jeff’s thoughts here. I do think the chance of breaking through the glass ceiling called Band is possibly here with shows like the ones Bluecoats designs. It’s less band and more Broadway or Vegas. Is Blue Man Group a musical act or a dramatic act? Still, the members are kids who are paying for the experience, not being paid. As such the core will continue to be band and those connnected with family. Iow, I am the rare exception to the rule:

    Life isn’t fair. That said, we should at least attempt to make it fairer. Right now it seems revenue sharing isn’t fair enough. JMO

    Absolutely NOT the case. Quite the contrary. I wish that all World Class corps had the same share of revenues, but when Pioneer can be world class that isn’t realistic or fair:

    It can only be equitable if all world class corps are making the same or similar commitments to deliver world class entertainment.

    I was, and still am, steadfastly against the G7 concept.

    If anything, I think it should be harder to become world-class rather than easier. Because right now you have groups and world-class that have no chance of actually competing to even make finals, let alone win a medal. There’s nothing wrong with that, but in order to develop a more equitable revenue-sharing model, you can’t have everybody in world-class. Yeah somehow the quotes got jacked.
