  • Your Drum Corps Experience
    I marched with my junior (Hawks, Richmond, CA) 1962-1967, performed in 4 National competitions competiting against Casper Troopers, Garfield Cadets, Chicago Royal Airs, and Chicago Cavaliers, taught and arranged music for the San Leandro Royalaires plus 2 small senior corps in New York, judged execution brass early during the formation of the Northern Califoria Circuit, I married into a WHOF drum corps family where brother-in-law marched and taught "The Commandant's Own". Truman Crawford was a frequent visitor at the house and I got to march a season with Yankee Rebels while my father-in-law taught the drill. The Rebels performed at a venue where Maynard Ferguson was playing and Maynard played ad-lib in front of the corps while we played. It was so awesome beyond belief. I marched one other season with The Phoenix of Rochester, NY in the drumline which was an experience because I was a soprano player. Anyway, it was all fun and would not trade for anything.

  1. IMO the "Jury is Still Out" on this one. I have researched the alleged post by Kathy Ho (Drum Major) on Reddit, videos on Innovative Percussion regarding Ike Johnson as well as his history and starting as a performer in the Blue Devils leading to his position as a percussion instructor for many various organizations. I do not condone mis-behavior by any educator/instructor, and I would expect and demand any instructor who works with younger age students to conduct themselves as a "Professional" at all times. It seems that at times, Ike Johnson may have over-stepped this line. I
  2. I predict, there will be a 2021 season however, it will be unlike anything we are accustomed to DEFINITIONS to think/start to think that something is normal or natural because you have experienced it regularly over a period of time As a First Responder, I have seen how my county has adapted their county facilities to deal with COVID and how they have set up temporary tents outside their buildings to do limited COVID testing by appointment. Access to stadiums/crowd protection/spacing/ and housing at school facilities is the key for any of the Ban

  12. A collection of videos from "Girls March" facebook group: Girls March Girls March Motto: For many of us, we simply wouldn't be who we are today if it weren't for the marching arts. It taught us the value of dedication, sacrifice, and the power of individuals working together toward the same goal.

  14. I can attest to this. the junior corps I marched with had very similar jackets to 1972 Anaheim Kingsmen only ours were red. They were a "West Point" style uniform modeled after the United States Military Academy West Point uniforms and were constructed out of ripcord type fabric which is extremely hot to wear because it did not breath well. Most of our shows were always in the central valley of California which is extremely hot. Even VFW Nationals in Seattle Washington was a bear. Inspection was done next to the large fountain at the World's Fair and it seemed like inspection took forever. Th
  15. A Comparison; The Representation of Male and Female Musicians You are correct but you miss the point of these posts. In no way were women being disparaged for their roles in playing an instrument previously considered as "male dominated". They are being honored for their contribution to music which is worthy of respect and admiration. Women who have previously participated in "drum corps" have gone on to successful careers in music but the number is still small for those who have gone on to be a successful brass or drumming instrument performers.
