    2019 Drum Corps Tour

    The Lizard is always on my pre show itinerary and frequently on my post show itinerary as well!

    I have three jackets myself but gave since moved away from Lizardville. I miss the Lizard. I may have to go to the Akron and/or Massillon shows and get my Lizard fix.

    Yeah, I know. But I figure there are fewer $$$ involved because there are fewer corps — 6 vs. 15, and if I recall correctly, tickets are a lot cheaper. I also figure most newbies would feel better with a smaller line-up. Sure we DCPers want to watch the top 15, but newbies? I think they would be impressed (and more than satisfied) with six of the top twelve.

    Another problem is that this exposure would come at the end of the season. Any new enthusiasm would definitely cool during the off season. But what about the Tour Premier? If it was economically feasible then you could use it to promote the upcoming season.

    Yeah, OK, I was being a jerk. Hey! I called myself a name!

    Why do I think this is good for the activity: A corps invites a musical group which is unaware of the activity to witness what a corps can do with the band’s source material. The band is so impressed they invite the corps to collaborate with them for a commercial release. I think this is a great thing for the activity. I like sunscreen, too.

    Way back on the last day of 2017 spring training in Denison, Bluecoats finally performed their first complete run through of Jagged Line. Who was there to watch it? Thank You Scientists. Bloo flew them in to watch how their work translated to the football field and after that first run through, TYS gave a private concert for the corps. Who had no problems getting licensing from TYS? Yup, Bluecoats, in part because they invited the band into the drum corps experience. I’m sorry there are fans of drum corps who can’t get past their narrow preferences not to see how this is a great thing for the activity.

    I concur. It is very cool. I may have my rants confused. And thanks, being a guy who marched in the ‘70s, I’ll take mid 40s anytime!

    Oh, you are. I am referring to the rant you are referring to (or maybe I’m confused).

    Or even a bush league rant. (As far as rants go, this one was less than compelling.)

    Respectfully disagree regarding the vocalist.

    I hope you will excuse me for not sharing your opinion.

    You’re right ... they got things working just before the “rewind” section, which was very timely. If the electronics hadn’t been fixed at that moment, we all would have heard a couple measures of absolutely nothing.

    I actually thought BD won semis in 16 for that very reason.
