    who leads who?

    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

    who leads who?

    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!!
  7. 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
  8. you're right..under the current touring model it would be impossible..back to the drawing board !
  9. I'm sorry if i made it seem like G7, i merely meant that however large the show, at it's zenith, DCI would have at least 5 top 12 at any show ( shows would include other WC corps as well as OC corps)..would never intentionally diss non top 12 corps, plus topic suggests opinion on when DCI will have even greater popularity
  10. drum corps will have fully matured when at least 5 top 12 corps appear at every show...logistically, that may be problematic, but as a fan , I wouldn't mind the rising ticket prices and the potential for rainouts, if i knew that the quality justified my time and money

    Cadets 2018

    the reaction to the Cadets last night was reminiscent of the audience responses to the Caballeros and Skyliners at the "DREAM " ..BITD

    Cadets 2018

    very emotional last evening..when the ballad came to a close everyone in my section of the stands stood applauding until the end of the show..almost surreal..thank you Cadets for being the Cadets AGAIN!!!!!!
