  1. So sorry to hear this. His tapes were always a joy to listen to...the kind you would want to play for the members of your group.
  2. $4 million to each team. Cost for the band was not a concern.
  3. There is also a marching band made up of 250 band directors from all 50 states marching in the parade. They will accompany a float made in tribute of band directors. Pretty cool. There is a live stream of the Band Fest held today and tomorrow on the TofR Music Facebook page.
  4. I believe we are stuck with Flo for at least 2 (maybe 3) more years. Maybe they will learn something from Box 5.
  5. Their are many GREAT bands in BOA. Some good bands in US Bands. BUT...Texas UIL is the top circuit in the United States. Also, BOX 5 MEDIA is FAR SUPERIOR to Flo Marching. They prove it can be done!
  6. Tonight I watched a performance of the United States Naval Academy Drum and Bugle Corps. I thought I heard piccolos and looked closer to see there were indeed piccolos, clarinets and I think saxophones. They still go by the name USNA Drum and Bugle corps. If they are now making a change to include woodwinds in their standard instrumentation why not change it to USNA Marching Band?
  7. I think that would depend on the corps. For some the days of instructors, admin, and volunteers being on the member busses are a thing of the past.
  8. Most commercial passenger busses can seat 56. 3 busses could handle the 165. (If no covid restrictions)
  9. Or as he said to me a few times at a show at Cooper Stadium in Columbus (him sitting in the aisle next to my top row seat) "Watch this, watch this!"...followed by "Did you see that!" I thought this is probably what it was like to sit next to Mozart ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. No scores worked...for a shortened 2 week season with no drum corps the previous year. I personally had reached the point where hearing a Dr. Beat again was a thrill. Could it work for a regular 6 week season? I don't think so.
  11. That Canadian humor gets him in trouble from time to time ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. Sure wish Bluecoats would have stayed home and made a video.... SAID NO ONE!!!!!! BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
  13. Did he go off script when he said "Why is it called LIVE from the Rose if the vocals are pre-recorded? Don't recall hearing that before.
