  1. Not sure which was the more bonehead 1981 decision, summer sHow in Vegas or Championships in Montreal.
  2. Looks like you are correct. Grant MS is on the location of the former HS. The AstroTurf stadium Is in the same location.
  3. It’s been a way long time but I seem to recall the HS being on a bend in a side street. It was old at that time.
  4. Not sure if this counts but 1985 or 86 Blue Devils cut 2 snare drummers about a week before finals. Not certain why it was done
  5. yeah, I vaguely remember that. Wasn’t that held at Franklin Stadium in Philly? If you were ever in that stadium you know what I’m talking about.
  6. That’s an easy one...DCI Finals 1981. My age-out year with 27, which no video exists. Great top 12 show.
  7. Actually I heard Marion was permanently flooded from all of the rain they got during The US Open. All of the local residents obsconded a drum corps bus and retrofitted it as an Ark. they were last seen floating off into the sunset using old color guard flags as sails.
  8. I just have to say that two of my all-time favorite iconic drum corps selections we’re by Bridgemen - Land of Make Believe & In The Stone. There is no doubt in my mind that Bridgemen were a big part of the popularity of drum corps 1976 - To the early 1980s.
  9. Here is a Corona learning moment for you. Vincent DeRosa, one of the greatest Brass Players you have listened to but never heard of. He played principle french horn on practically EVERY major motion picture soundtrack and TV theme from the 1940s all the way to the 1990s. Yes, over 50 years!!! From John Williams to the Beatles, he was also the 1st call horn for many Rock, Pop, Easy Listening, and Jazz recordings. Check out his Wiki page for more info. He will be celebrating his 100th Birthday in October. Here are a few of his many big name films - Spartacus (1960), The Magni
  10. Love to hear some top shelf brass playing that is off the beaten path. The more obscure, the better. Here's a start: Example #1. The stratospheric trumpet obbligato on Bobby Sherman's Julie, do you love me. If you hold your nose on the pop song and focus on the trumpet, it is pretty impressive! Example #2. The Chuck Mangione style flugelhorn playing on a few tasty moments of "Bye Bye Life" with Ben Verneen at the end of the movie ALL THAT JAZZ. Caution, I am not sure of this movie's rating, it has been a while since I have seen it. What do ya got? "keep cal
  11. I came across some cool historical drum corps relics. DCI Contest Guild issues from 1977-1981 that you can read on a website, Pubhtml5.com. I finally was able to read more info about why the PBS Championship broadcast was cancelled in 1981 (huge jump in production budget). Grrr, my age out year with 27. If you go to the site you can search “contest guild”, and walk through memory lane with these old Contest Guilds. enjoy and happy sequestering. "keep calm and carry a tune"
