  1. I've often been at shows where the performing corps show is interrupted by music being played by another corps waiting to go on, thus distracting from the performing corps...This is particularly annoying when the performing corps is playing a ballad...I'm sure I'm not alone with this observation...So, is this just the way it is or can something be done to avert this conflict?
  2. Had to laugh a little when I saw that in 1929 the class B winner of the national band competition was the Michigan Reform School...I don't know if it meant then what I came to understand as "Reform" School but half of my corps would probably have qualified to march with them..lol
  3. Maybe it's exactly what D.C.I. wants.. A quasi professional league of the finest musicians money can buy...No longer meant as a youth activity per se but rather a showcase for gifted musicians and dancers between ages 14-22 who add to their resumes drum corps for future references...imho
  4. Really appreciate all the responses so far... They're not only educating but passionate...And one can see the shoulders that current designers stand on...Peace
  5. I ask this because I've seen so many advances in drill/choreography since D.C.I.'s inception that I find it near impossible for me to speak with any authority..So feel free to give us your thoughts..thank you
  6. Not including some of the redundancy, I thought the document's grammatical errors gave the appearance of being hastily produced...That it was never fully realized does not surprise ..just my opinion...I'm just a fan..peace
  7. The theme from To kill a mockingbird is indeed beautiful and with Bocook arranging ...done deal..I just wonder how many have heard Andre Previn's arrangement of the Theme from the movie "Bad day at Black rock" starring a one armed Spencer Tracy...I would love to see this haunting melody done by the Cadets.It's one of my favorites..peace
  8. The REGAL Theater in Union Square Manhattan is still apparently one of the valid locations as far as I can tell
  9. I have all of Herbie' s albums(vinyl too)..If the St. Louis Blues version with Stevie is even close to the album,I'm ALL in..Go Cadets
  10. I know that they would probably play the hell out of TOMMY, but given the relatively recent demise of Chick Corea, Michael Brecker and Roy Hargrove I would hope that some corps, any corps, would consider the music these beautiful dudes left us..peace
  11. Though I rarely had a chance to see them , except for finals week, they were one of the more entertaining corps that I thoight might crack the top twelve one day..Sad that they won't be available this year..And yes, it feels like dci is paying for it's sins of omission.peace
  12. In Brooklyn, Spumoni Gardens pizza was so good that when their recipe was hijacked by a Staten Island competitor, war almost broke out..I've had Spumoni pizza and it is sensational! not your typical N.Y. pizza
  13. thank you for keeping chick's music and memory alive and well..27 Grammy awards !
  14. STAR OF INDIANA, 1993....you all know the chord after the big bass drum rolls..Medea..nuff said
  15. Not to mention an invasion of Ukraine whose consequences are potentially staggering
