  1. With the expansion of singing into drum corps, I think VK could totally pull this off if they were around today...
  2. One of these guys (the smallest one):
  3. It was a lot of fun! Lots of people throughout the day, and good discussion in the comments about shows, insider tidbits, etc. Plus I got to see ALL of my favorites (although I somehow missed '82 and I knew it was coming)... They had 5 minute breaks in between each video; at one point, someone commented they needed that time for the corps to move equipment on and off the field...๐Ÿ˜
  4. Big 10 cancelled their did the ACC, Big 12, Pac 12, and SEC...
  5. Hmmm.... Alton, IL...I remember a show used to be held there in the 70' was an interesting place back then...
  6. If the show is anything CLOSE to what I just saw in that SNL skit (which was hysterical, btw), I fear my brain might just rebel and leave my body were I to watch any significant amount of an episode... YMMV, obviously
  7. Looks like as good a time as any to trot this classic back out ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  8. TBH, I'd agree to "just as loud" but would prefer the term "different" to "better"
  9. Sounds like they could use some help in "expanding their creative limits" ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. Did not know the highlighted part...Up to 3 obviously isn't enough, given the number of times MANY corps can't get the sound right... ๐Ÿ™„ They could, you know, NOT permit these "in the stands" folks to make any "on the go" adjustments - use one of their set up minutes to do a sound check then shut them down. While we're at it (and this argument has been made by several on here), during the show, an "of marching age" member should be the one running the field board... Also an advocate of disallowing shotgun mics and large-scale individual micing (no, don't have a top limit in mind)...
  11. 1. I have yet to attend an indoors show (DCI, WGI, etc.), and I doubt I will. I know that in some cases, stadiums/arena design has included elements to INCREASE sound focusing/retention with respect to increasing the impact of fan noise. I highly suspect that these elements will NOT benefit sound quality with respect to fans LISTENING to a performance. 2. Short answer? Probably not. Granted, I would probably be intrigued enough to go to a small indoor venue version to see what it's about. TO ME, however, give me outdoors, big, powerful performances, with as much acoustically-based sourcing as you can.
