  1. Happy Friday everyone! What everyone else said...I couldn't possibly add anything to this thread - but I'll try. It's like the New England Patriots, their owner Bob Kraft, their Head Coach Bill Belichick and their QB Tom Brady. They've all been together for close to 20 years (consistency). They have set standards for each and every person in that organization. I much suspect BD does as well. No matter who you are, you could quite possibly be the best trumpet player in the world, but if you don't meet the standards or at least follow them, you're gone. Not saying that BD is that harsh, but you all get the idea. It's all about chemistry as well. If you don't have the chemistry, you're not going to get that far. All the young men and women who try out for BD understand there's a certain level of excellence expected from each and every corps member, from the Director of the corps on down. It's simply amazing when you really think about it. Not saying that other corps don't have great leaders, but BD has a proven track record of consistently winning and placing in the top 1 or 2 for the last 25 years or so, and that's what draws the top talent to them in my humble opinion. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
  2. Got no spirit and want to start a cult? Well come on down y'all to Atlanta. We've got 150 black robes with hoods and a door to hell. Heck, we'll even through in a stage (drummers not included), and then for those days where you're feeling a bit hot, we have you covered there too with some light blue shirts and pants that will make you feel cooler. Serious inquires only. LOL
  3. How about a tribute to John Williams? One of the greatest composers of our time. It would have to be a very well thought out and put together show. If done right, it could simply be amazing. I'm not sure which corps' design staff would do it justice though.
  4. For me it has to be the Blue Devils. It was the solo at the start, and the lead up to the rotating drill - gave me chills. Some of my other favorites from this incredible season are: 1. Blue Devils 2. Cavies 3. Bluecoats 4. Blue Knights 5. Boston
  5. I love the Bluecoats show, but it seemed like they had a better run last night.
  6. I know, right. Someone stop him before he hurts himself. Geez…I can only imagine what’s going to come out next.
  7. So many amazing shows this year. Just amazing! Case in point, the Crossmen! These corps are all bringing it, and I’m loving every minute of it!
  8. Awesome Show!!!!!! Great job Pacific Crest! Loveeeeeee this show! Outstanding!
  9. Man, I love PC’s show! That brass line! Such energy! I hope they sneak into finals…
  10. Absolutely loved their show last night. It sounded and looked even better than it did in Allentown. These words bring to mind their show: Energy, precision, passion, and confidence. Loved everything coming out of those horns from start to finish. I have no idea why they aren't scoring better this year! I think this could easily have been a top three show, and I don't say that lightly (coming from a BD guy). So many great shows this year, and the Cavies definitely have one of them! Loving this season of Drum Corps! So many deserving corps this year, those kids are leaving everything out on the field! It's going to be a photo finish!
