Your Favorite Drum Corps Season



  1. Alliance Drum and Bugle Corps has declared to compete in Class A for the 2015 season! The decision to compete in Class A this year was not taken lightly, but the staff and administration are excited about the move and potential it brings to the drum corps. We just completed our "Super Camp" (four day camp) and it concluded with the performance of nearly 8 minutes worth of the show. This is a first for Alliance and we are very excited about the possibilities that this opens up for our corps as the season unfolds. We are very excited to be on track with doing our first full-run next weekend

  3. So does anyone know why Spirit of Atlanta decided to switch to Kanstul brass instruments instead of Yamaha? I haven't heard whether Kanstul instruments are better, but I have heard it was because SOA got a sponsorship from Kanstul. I'm probably wrong but still... any ideas?

  7. Since we've had electronics and amplification around for several years, let's discuss it's use in 2014 shows and how effective it was. I figure we can catagorize it in the following uses: Amplifying / Altering traditional DCI accoustic sounds (brass, battery, pic) Amplifying / Altering live voice Use of prerecorded voice Use of prerecorded sound effects Use of synthesized traditional non-DCI instruments (piano, guitar, organ) Use of other traditional synth sounds (bass, synth strings) Any other uses?

  9. Ever thought about each member of Blue Devils has a very distinct style and appearance? Do they audition people based on how they look too? Because almost all of them are attractive. Or is it just the fact that they are from California they have this natural celebrity look? Anybody have other thoughts?
  10. Who do you think will be placed where in this upcoming season? I'm really curious. And new to this!
  11. Hello! Is there a way to get old DCI & DCM, and Division III patches? I'm particularly interested in getting ones from 2001. Thanks in advance for your help!

  13. Murphy, Juwan Carolina Crown, Baritone Hello, I'm new to this community but my name is Juwan Murphy and I am currently a sophomore music performance and education major at the University of Central Florida with my focus on trombone. I started with music early with the piano in elementary school and in middle school joined the band in 7th grade and have been playing trombone since then. Ever since I started high school I have been intrigued by drum corp. The amount of talent and dedication that must of went in to achieve the feats that some did to me was incredible. As I started to get more i
  14. Hello, my name is Alexis Macy. I have been contracted to march baritone with the Sacramento Mandarins for their 2015 season. This is a major dream come true for me because I have always wanted to march with a corps, but I never though I could because Im primarily a flute player. I had taught myself baritone (I have been playing for about 9 months now) and I never thought I wouldve been good enough. But now I have been contracted and I have the chance to live my dream. However, there are a lot of fees associated with drum corps. My tour fees plus round trip flight for April is $1600. I am in de

  18. I was planning on trying out for cavaliers in the future and was wondering if I can use my TAMA by Kanstul Mellophone. They are different than most mellos in the way that they have a full horn kicker and not individual valves, they sound different than your everyday mello, and they're smaller and different looking but only when at a carry, the bell looks just like a yamaha or king from the front. this may cause some differences in appearance the corps may not like but I'm not sure. If someone could help me on this issue, it would be appreciated greatly, thanks. I own no rights to the picture p
  19. "Scouts Honor" is a documentary film that follows the 2012 Madison Scouts on their journey from audition camp to finals night. It follows 3 members, one from the brass line, one from the drumline, and one in the colorguard, throught their personal struggles and stories about their experience within the organization. Two alumni who are professionals in the movie industry are the filmmakers. It's been doing well in the small festival circuit, but currently, distribution is limited to a theater on-demand style. I have requested a screening in DeKalb, IL, home of Northern Illinois University, 60

  22. Action Wipes all natural wet wipes is doing a sale for the new year, 20% off with code "FEST2015" This product is really useful for members and spectators all year round, for after rehearsals or at shows. Wet wipes that use all natural ingredients and can be repurposed later on after wash, smell great and don't leave a sticky residue like most baby wipes. Wish I had these when I was marching.
