  1. And Teal Sound used one in 2011. I believe they were the first to do so. STRYKE Winds used one in 2017 or 2019, I believe, but the instrument requirements in WGI Winds are much looser than drum corps.
  2. I remember watching this show and becoming a full convert to how electronics can work in drum corps.
  3. Bloo Alumni used Tonal Energy on an iPhone. I was amazed at how programmable it is, and that's on top of the tuning functionality which I originally bought it for myself.
  4. Confirmed as Jay Wise announced this on the Blog Alumni Facebook group. Needless to say, I'm chuffed I'll be on an official DCI recording for the first time since 1996, and with MUCH better audio quality. I'm looking at you, IBM Interactive.
  5. Sticking with the Bluecoats Alumni Corps theme, here’s a montage of photos from our experience this past summer, set to audio of our performance Semifinals night. Enjoy! https://medi-nerd.com/2022/12/29/throwback-thursday-bluecoats-alumni-corps-experience-through-our-eyes/
  6. I'll admit, this entry onto my list is a stretch since the Guardsmen are playing "Greensleeves", but considering it is the same melody as "What Child Is This?", I decided to roll with it. https://medi-nerd.com/2022/12/28/12-corps-of-christmas-1978-1982-guardsmen/
  7. NOTE: This article originally appeared on my old website as part of a series of 2010 show reviews. I've updated the article with photos, but the text is almost completely untouched. Enjoy! https://medi-nerd.com/2022/12/26/marching-monday-2010-bluecoats/
  8. "I was going to save this one for last. I mean, you can't get more Christmas-y than doing a show completely composed of Christmas music with the name "12.25", right? My plans changed when the Cadets dropped the entire 2012 show on their YouTube channel ON CHRISTMAS. If they're going to give us such an excellent gift, who am I to argue?" https://medi-nerd.com/2022/12/26/12-corps-of-christmas-2012-cadets/
  9. If you ask fans of Carolina Crown when the corps’ rise to become one of the perennial competitors for the DCI World Championship, a good number of them would point to the 2003 season. After dropping out of finals the season before, Crown made a number of changes, not the least of which was the addition of Matt Harloff as brass caption head, a position he still holds as of this article. Crown’s horn lines are legendary for their power and dexterity, but it took time to build to that level, and 2003 was step #1. https://medi-nerd.com/2022/12/23/12-days-of-drum-corps-2003-carolina-crown/
  10. It’s a great Steve Brubaker Cavaliers virtual moment leading into the final impact of the show.
