Just got home from the show. What a beautiful night for drum corps!
The venue has the potential to be one of the best of any venue on tour. They just need to fix a few problems. The will call line was horrendous, and if you had a bag with you the line to get in was wrapped halfway around the stadium. It was extremely unorganized. Then the first half of the show they had vendors walking up and down the aisles during performances yelling for people top buy a beer. About halfway through the show they seemed to figure out that this wasn't that type of event.... fix these things and this will be a fantastic venue for drum corps!
Everyone was on fire tonight! My daughter and I both agreed on our 3 favorites of the night.
1. Carolina Crown. No surprise here we're Crown homers through thick and thin. My goodness that brass is unreal. The corps as a whole has really locked over the last week and I couldn't be more excited for them! Keep pushing Crown!
2. Blooooo! Again no surprise here, I mean how could you not LOVE this show?! I have to give props to the designers on this one. They really know how to write an engaging and entertaining show. They know how to get people out of their seats. The whole stadium was on their feet for the last minute of the show. And congrats to the kids for really performing the heck out of this show! I just can't see anyone beating Bloo this year.
3. Crossmen, this was the surprise. Not the most talented group on the field tonight but we both LOVED this show! Very entertaining with some great brass and guard moments. And the award for most entertaining drum major definitely goes to the young lady with the Crossmen. She was FIRE! What a pleasant surprise this group was tonight, thank you for putting on such an entertaining show.
Everyone was fantastic but it's late and I have to work tomorrow so I just wanted to hit on the 3 that we enjoyed the most.
