  1. This shows how new I am to this activity (2016 was my first live show), but I'm curious. I know who Jim Ott, Fred Sanford and George Zingali are, and they definitely deserve the recognition. However, I don't know anything about Don Angelica and John Brazale. To those with more knowledge of their works and accomplishments, could you please give me some information on them?
  2. This is WELL before my time, but I've found myself going through videos of shows from the mid-90's on to pass the time. I'll say my bit on '01 Colts: Solid enough, nothing particularly remarkable. Not too much to say here Crown: Not able to find full show, 2 minute clip I saw was solid, tires were a unique touch Scouts: Typical Scouts, again not able to find full show, but I did find an absolute gem of Rondo introducing them at NightBEAT. "You may take the field in competition and blow the doors off the *HIT* stadium" BAC: Enjoyable music, arrangement of Gabriel's Oboe maybe a tad "extra" for my tastes, but a nice production Bluecoats: Nothing super memorable, but well done, as usual Crossmen: This was nice, Can't be mad at Jazz played well Phantom: Typical Phantom, I feel I'm one of the few that actually kinda likes the khaki (although the all-black of a few years earlier is gorgeous). I'm a sucker for Shosty, so this show gets a few brownie points for me Glassmen: This stylistically reminds me of Marian Catholic HS, very "stabby" (as one poster put it) opener, well done ballad (Flugel is very good) and a intriguing closer. SCV: Another example of their turn-of-the-millenium thinkpiece shows. Short Ride and Fat Pickin' is a very friendly opener and the drumspeak section (before the Green and Maroon corps used it) is another unique touch Cadets: No full show video again, (although I did find most of it in one video) but Moondance is always fun, the Hannibal is very warm and round (almost Phantomesque) and the Farandole is well done, with very nice drill as well BD: Awayday is a great piece (one I've actually played) and their hornline was insane Cavies: Michael Gaines and a very good drumline. Nuff said.
  3. Good things from Blue Stars. Got to talk with their center snare's mom. Little bit of thunderous goo (Mandarins were the worse at this, imo.), but a lot of fun nonetheless.
  4. Mandarins with some punch. PR a bit more refined. Curious to see margins tonight.
  5. Spirit a noticeable step up. Not as much crowd reception. Groovy, but a little weird.
  6. Guardians provided a nice start. Some nice moments, especially in their ballad. Work to be done, but it is only their 2nd show of the season.
  7. I will say in their defense that this is their 1st time doing this. Definitely frustrating though.
  8. Show has been pushed back 30 minutes. Not sure why, it's not that hot out.
  9. And unfortunately I can't figure out how to post pictures. Will provide updates, however.
  10. Spectator. One lane, it was bad when we were watching PR Drumline.
  11. I'll try to post updates/pictures. Looking forward to the show tonight.
