  1. What would happen if they tested for 5 hour energy or Monster energy drinks?
  2. UNT Brass Band played this last night (the video is not from UNT). Fire in the Blood. Was first played in 2011 so I couldn't find any drum corps that has played it. Is very upbeat and two great solos. Sounds like something Troopers might do.
  3. I went to each corps wikipedia page. Here is what it had for Blue Devils for example. I knew about some being open class, but didn't want to go through trying to figure out what each corps did in open versus division III vs world class etc. Year Theme Repertoire Score Placement 1971 Theme from Lawrence of Arabia by Maurice Jarre / Ode to Joy (from Ninth Symphony) by Ludwig van Beethoven / America The Beautiful by Samuel A. Ward and Katharine Lee Bates / Big Spender (from Sweet Charity) by Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields / Stoney End by Laura Nyro / Shadow of Your Smile (from The Sandpiper) by Johnny Mandel and Paul Francis Webster --- --- 1972 Strike Up the Band (from Strike Up the Band) by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin / Ave Maria by Franz Schubert / Venus by Robbie van Leeuwen / The Man I Love & I Got Rhythm (from Girl Crazy) by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin / Day in the life of a Fool by Luiz Bonfá and Antônio Maria (as Manhã de Carnaval) adapted by Carl Sigman --- --- 1973 Chant and Jubilo by W.

  5. I was able to track one corps one year in 2017 for age outs and returns. 150 MM's 20 Age Outs, 25 returning. 105 MM's were new to the corps, don't know how many had marched somewhere else though.
  6. Thanks. Here is the 3 year age outs plus rank.

  7. Haven't seen one yet. Does anyone have numbers by the corps?
  8. Crossmen, because it was my son's first year marching for them and first time every marching drum corps.
  9. I work with predictive analytics for a living. This is fun stuff for me. I did some basic analysis of 2019 and results are below. I did not apply any type of advance machine learning to this, all straight statistics. Bottom line -- Blue Devils, Blue Coats, Blue Knights, Blue Stars and Pacific Crest are the only corps who outperformed their average increase from 1st show to last show. Average 6 year increase is an average of the difference between 1st score of the season and last score (I did last score and not high score, even though we know most finals scores go down among the bottom 6). Many reasons for this as we know, show design, age and experience of MM, skill of the staff, how the judge was feeling that day, etc. Top 4 were all different, but I hit on 10 out of 20 placements and pretty close on final score for 11 of the 20.

  12. Here is the number of age outs over the past 2 years. I would suspect there is a high correlation of age out and drum corps experience. I can't imagine someone marching Blue Devils their age out year and never marched anywhere else.

  13. My son marched 2016 and 2017, was supposed to march last year but he decided not to at the last minute (bad decision he knows). He tried out for a top 3 corp this year and didn't make to so decided to go to summer school. At the last minute 2 corps contacted him and said we need you....but he already enrolled. So this year I have no investment but will still follow the season. I went to finals two years in a row and went to Boston for parades and a show. Great activity and I encouraged him to think about marching his age out year.
  14. Also, be prepared, one of these shows (except San Antonio, indoors) usually gets a Thunderstorm. Parking in San Antonio is not fun around the stadium.
  15. My son's nickname his first year was Baby Giraffe, because that is what the tech's said he looked like when he marched. He got better, but was forever known as Baby Giraffe.
