    Must have been "Putney Swope" hall..that kind of banter would have worked well there''...lol

    The Cadets 2019

    I've seen the really good H.S. props and I've seen the really bad..so if Cadets go the way of let's say Tarpon Springs, no problem,the vast majority of props I've seen, both in BOA and DCI that work well are the ones constructed well

    actually, it was the 3 ring circus approach that i found fun and amusing...I don't know the adults you elude to ..i would only hope that they have good intentions re; the kids

    Just watched Tarpon Spring Outdoor Performance Ensemble....music book is not difficult and loud when required.. but #### that show visually is a Mother...those now infamous screens do add a great deal in supporting their theme

    who leads who?

    Admittedly i"m a Dino..that said, after watching BOA this weekend, it dawned on me that drum corps and band resemble each to a significant degree..That said: Does the marching arts creativity come from high school bands or does DCI influence the direction of the marching arts?

    Best Reprise Closer?

    It's been highlighted by previous DCP contributors but I have to again support that great garfield 87 copland show...I mean, c'mon ..the way they left the field was DOPE!!
  13. maybe I'm wrong ( and it won't be the first time) but doesn't the maintenance of woodwind instruments incur costs to a drum corps that might be better spent elsewhere?..maybe the summer band circuit eluded to earlier, failed , because in part, of the hell those ww instruments go through in the heat and humidity of a summer tour..IMHO
  14. you're right..under the current touring model it would be impossible..back to the drawing board !
