  7. I'd had been looking forward to seeing Magic's production. I loved the movie and its soundtrack. Yes the blasted metronome was a distraction. I was standing near the endzone and didn't get to fully appreciate the quality of the musicanship. What I was able to hear was well played, no apparent busted notes, good dynamics and precision timing (much in thanks to the metronome). But, I agree with the other reviewer about the marching. Lots of false starts and stops and phasing like crazy. Still, a job well done if in fact the drill had been learned only that weekend as was rumored. I liked the color guard costumes. I think as more guard work is cleaned and choregraphy is added the production will gel together just fine. I love the changes to the corps uniform proper, very classy looking. Whether it's fair or not, I'm sure a lot of comparisons are going to be made between this production and Madison's '97 show. I think Magic is going to be challenged to develop a story line that is uniquely their own while keeping the same raw emotion, excitement and intensity that made Scouts so entertaining and a crowd favorite. They easily have the talent to do just that. I just hope they keep the momentum going. I can't wait to see them again at DCI Orlando. Best wishes and good luck this season, Magic! See you at BINGO. B) Sincerely,
  8. Yes they did. It was annoying at first, but I understand this was more of dress rehearsal on roids. So I got over it pretty quick. But Magic, once they get some feet issues taken care of, will be a force to be reckoned with. And why did NO ONE sing...yo ho yo ho a Pirate's Life for Me? :( I had roids during dress rehearsal too. Much better after the Preparation H :sshh:
