  4. I'm a FMM of The Velvet Knights, having marched in the early 90's. Nowadays, I am a sommelier and restaurant professional who has a popular blog about food, wine, restaurants, and men's fashion. Every now and then, I will write about something that is not-related to theme of my blog, including topics on drum and bugle corps. I've always been a fan and loved the activity since I first saw a drum corps show in 1987. Recently though, I thought it would be fun to interview a current member of a drum corps and feature them on my blog. As it turns out, I know someone personally in The Concord Blue D
  5. I didn't experience the Kiltie Klassic from the stands. Any ticket holders out there planning to do a writeup?
  6. So it was recently announced that Boston's 2014 program is entitled "Animal Farm". Thoughts? Predictions? I think that this show could be very interesting, especially with those new uni's.
  7. I'm entering my senior year of high school and by the end of this marching season I will have had 4 years on flag and 2 on rifle and saber. I have never been in a winter guard, but am searching for one for this winter. I know I have a lot of practicing to do to make a world class corps. My long term goal is to be in Phantom Regiment, but obviously my chances of making that this year are slim to none. What is a good corps to audition for my first year? I will probably audition for Phantom anyway for the experience. I live in Wisconsin, but I can't bring myself to do Pioneer. Also, given that
  8. Enjoy our thoughts here :)
  9. Hey guys, We made an attempt to predict who's going to win drums this year in DCI by crunching numbers from 40ish years of recap scores, and we also discovered some judging trends. If you've got 5 minutes to spare, come check it out!

  11. "Scouts Honor: Inside a Marching Brotherhood," the feature length film won the "Best Documentary" award yesterday at the FLY Film Festival. Read more about the festival and the latest with the film on the movie website. While the movie features the Madison Scouts, it has the ability to bring many new people to the activity and help all the groups in DCI & DCA. Please spread the word! Thank you!
  12. I was wondering if the top corps from today would be switched with the non-high scoring groups....
  13. Any Comment? If you have been thinking about this too like i have been for the pass three years, lets discuss it. What are your thoughts exactly. Anyone cares to? anyone!!!?
  14. Hey, I was thinking about trying out for the colts. I know they aren't finalist but I would still like to be there working hard in order to get the desired result. However, since they arent a high ranking corps I was wondering if their guard would be a challenge for me.(im tossing 5's and 6's)
  15. You keep announcing the Blue Devils as being founded in 1970. This is wrong. They were founded in 1957 as a drum and bell corps. In 1970 they started a drum and bugle corps. I think the way you are explaining it does not make sense. I know that you understand the history but are explaining it wrong. Thank you.
  16. Posted here by DCI. Based on San Antonio scores, shuffled as usual in groups of three. 2:30 p.m. – Carolina Gold (All Age) 2:47 p.m. – Atlanta CorpsVets (All Age) 3:04 p.m. – Pioneer 3:21 p.m. – Jersey Surf 3:38 p.m. – Cascades 3:55 p.m. – Mandarins 4:12 p.m. – Pacific Crest 4:29 p.m. – Oregon Crusaders 4:46 p.m. – Intermission 5:37 p.m. – The Academy 5:54 p.m. – Troopers 6:11 p.m. – Spirit of Atlanta 6:28 p.m. – Colts 6:45 p.m. – Madison Scouts 7:02 p.m. – Blue Stars 7:19 p.m. – Crossmen 7:36 p.m. – Phantom Regiment 7:53 p.m. – Intermission 8:10 p.m. – Boston Crusaders 8:2
  17. If you are looking for something fun to do on Sunday of the Allentown weekend, please consider joining the Crossmen members, staff, supporters, alumni, volunteers and fans for a great lunch time banquet. Come mingle with other drum corps fans and support a great cause. Wednesday July 23 is the last day to order tickets, there is plenty of seating available so act fast! Click the link below to buy tickets, they are $50 per person. Crossmen/CAA 40th Anniversary Banquet Sunday, Au
  18. I feel like this question needs to be asked. What's your favorite vocal or vocal passage? I really dug the fast 1234 vocal with leg swings in the middle of crowns show last year. It made me uncomfortable in more of a curious way? Anyway the colts this season seem to be pushing the limits of their vocal cords with a constant stream of vocals to keep me interested. I heard that past presidents are even giving the vocals a shot in some shows. Having them in the show really makes it all the more genuine and official. Well the question still stands....tell me your favorite vocal! Everyone's opin
  19. I don't see a thread for this show, which should be about half over now. Schedule as per From the Pressbox (CDT): 7:15 Legends 7:32 Colt Cadets 7:49 Genesis 8:26 Colts 8:43 Troopers 9:00 Phantom Regiment 9:17 Cavaliers It looks like a little rain is about to roll through, although I don't think it will last. If you're there, or after you're there, chime in here!
  20. Week 1 [June 18 - June 21] (74.075) - The Cadets (73.700) - Blue Devils (73.016) - Carolina Crown (72.800) - Bluecoats (70.525) - Santa Clara Vanguard (70.250) - Phantom Regiment (69.266) - The Cavaliers (66.775) - Madison Scouts (66.400) - Boston Crusaders (65.550) - Blue Knights (64.250) - Blue Stars (63.075) - Crossmen (61.633) - Troopers (60.450) - Spirit of Atlanta (60.400) - Colts (59.975) - Pacific Crest (58.575) - Mandarins (47.350) - Pioneer - The Academy - Cascades - Jersey Surf - Oregon Crusaders *Rank
  21. I'm interested to see if DCP posters are generally negative and critical of DCI or are, instead. generally positive and complimentary of DCI. Not about a specific topic, just about DCI, the organization, in general. Please answer two questions from your own perspective. Poll is not public, and comments are welcome. Since, obviously, the broader the votes the more valid the poll, so I'll likely bump as the season picks up and fans circle in for a view.
  22. In Corps at the Crest San Diego at Oceanside. I think this is the earliest that's happened for a while. Four of them are making their season debut (Gold, Impulse, Incognito, Watchmen). Three of them so new that DCP has no Topic Tags for them (Golden Empire, Incognito, Watchmen)--maybe it's time to swap out the tags for Forte and Revolution? Golden Empire got off to a strong start last week. Gold has been the third-best California O.C. corps the past two years. How will they stack up? If you're there, let us know how they're doing!
  23. I see that DCI has announced that Patria Drum and Bugle Corps from Guatemala will present Todos es Posible (Anything Is Possible). A quick Google search indicates there are nine Hispanic radio stations in Chicago, which is only about an hour from Michigan City: does this offer a new marketing opportunity? Also, if North Eastern Technology from Thailand is still traveling to the U.S., as DCI announced in December, that would make sixteen corps at Open Class prelims.
  24. Akron Cinecast Review Let’s start off with some disclaimers. I’m a guard person, and I’m much more active in the winter than in the summer. I have no musical training, so I can’t comment much on brass or percussion. I mostly watched the color guard and overall visual effect. With that out of the way, here we go. Cavaliers: I just could not get into this show because of the cheesiness factor. My guess is this show looks and feels much different under the lights, because during the day it felt comical and forced from the guard. The guard characterization was not right for me – I know that’s w
  25. Been off DCP for a while, but I saw this... ...back when DCI first put it up. Can someone direct me to the forum on here where it was no doubt discussed into oblivion? Thanks!
