  1. After hearing that Music City moved up to world class for 2018, I began to wonder what other corps might make it into either open or world class in the future. This list is my predictions: Predictions for future World Class Corps: Battalion - 2025 Legends - 2022 Louisiana Stars - 2027 Columbians - 2028 Guardians - 2025 Southwind - 2026 Predictions for future open class corps: Tall City - 2019 Arsenal - 2019 Encorps - 2019 Armada - 2020 Appalachian Sound - 2020 Vessel - 2018 Arbella - 2022 Hub City Guardians - 2018 Horizon - 2021 Cutting Edge - 2025 Again, these are my predictions and not are not factual. What are your predictions? Do any of your predictions match up with mine? Do any of your predictions not match up with mine? Please list your comments below and we will find out!
  2. Legends seems to be in a pretty dire situation financially. They need significant funds to keep the corps moving down the road to Indy. Take a look at the video from their director and consider helping them out if you can: https://www.classy.org/campaign/legendsnow/c138390
  3. Here are the schedules for tonight's two shows. A Blast in the Burg -- Johnsonburg, Pennsylvania 7:08 p.m. -- Impulse 7:24 p.m. -- Stentors 7:40 p.m. -- Raiders 7:56 p.m. -- Music City 8:12 p.m. intermission 8:37 p.m. -- 7th Regiment 8:53 p.m. -- Legends 9:09 p.m. -- Spartans (all times Eastern) Percussion on the Pearl -- Muscatine, Iowa 7:18 p.m. -- Guardians 7:36 p.m. -- Louisiana Stars 7:54 p.m. -- Colt Cadets 8:10 p.m. Intermission 8:26 p.m. -- Gold 8:42 p.m. -- Vanguard Cadets 8:58 p.m. -- Blue Devils B (all times Central) Guardians' position in the schedule will throw off the judges a bit, I would guess. Genesis, River City Regiment, and Shadow have the night off.
  4. Please use this thread to report from Legends Drum Corps Open -- Three Rivers, MI 7:08 p.m. LakeShoremen (SoundSport) 7:18 p.m. Les Stentors 7:34 p.m. Raiders 7:50 p.m. intermission 8:10 p.m. Music City 8:26 p.m. 7th Regiment 8:42 p.m. Legends (times are Eastern) or Show of Shows -- Waukesha, WI 7:23 p.m. Kilties (all age) 7:39 p.m. Shadow 7:55 p.m. Impulse 8:11 p.m. intermission 8:41 p.m. Colt Cadets 8:57 p.m. Spartans 9:13 p.m. Blue Devils (times are Central) There should be no rain at either show. Last night in Troy, Legends beat Spartans by 1.5 pts., so it will be very useful to see how close Spartans can get to BDB tonight. Not to mention to see how Music City does against O.C. corps after their strong showing Friday in Nashville.
  5. This show is already well underway. Is anyone there? 6:10 p.m. Les Stentors 6:26 p.m. Raiders 6:42 p.m. 7th Regiment 6:58 p.m. intermission 7:20 p.m. Legends 7:36 p.m. Spartans Will Legends stay ahead of Spartans? Will 7th Regiment tighten the gap from the top two? And where will Raiders fit in after a month off?
  6. The DCI website is oddly limited in its information about this show. There is no zip code listed in the address. And no actual address, for that matter, just the name of the street. A little scouting with Google maps provides that data, but I'd also note that DCI's page for this show says still today, the day of the show, that "Ticket information about this event will be available soon." Anyway: A Blast in the Burg Memorial Field 284 W. Center Street Johnsonburg, PA 15845 Thursday, July 24 -- 7:00 p.m. Performance order: --Coastal Surge --Genesis --Stentors --Raiders --Legends --7th Regiment --Spartans This is the first meeting of current score leaders 7th Regiment and Spartans with an Open Class corps likely to be of similar caliber (Genesis--not sure why they go on so early), so we will see just how realistic their scores this season have been (particularly the Manchester scores). This is also the seasonal debut of Coastal Surge.
  7. Fiesta de Musica Clem Lemire Sports Complex Memorial High School 1 Crusader Way Manchester, NH 03103 Saturday, July 19, 2014 -- 5:30 p.m. Performing corps: Defenders (in exhibition) Muchachos (in exhibition) Racine Scouts Legends Stentors 7th Regiment Spartans How will les Stentors do in their 2014 debut? Will 7th Regiment stay ahead of Spartans? After a couple weeks off for both corps, will their scores show enough improvement to put them ahead of Blue Devils B's, Vanguard Cadets', and Genesis's scores? And bravo to Legends and especially Racine Scouts for traveling farther than they usually go.
  8. Because most of these tiny shows get overlooked, and because I enjoyed it quite a lot, here is my review of Sunday's show! (Disclaimer: this review will likely be deficient in color guard and drumline commentary. I'd rather spare you "Wow, drumline's big" and "flags were nice but it was windy" because I admittedly don't have much expertise in these areas.) Legends: This was my first ever experience with Legends. I found the hornline to have a warm and nice sound, generally, however, the visual element definitely hurt the musical delivery. Granted it's early July, so there's still plenty of time to get the feet out of the sound. I really appreciated that the (unamplified) pit had timpani. I enjoyed the concept of the show, though at times integration of horns and drums muddied things a bit. Genesis: First viewing of this corps as well. Visually, a noticeable step up from Legends; this group marches well. The hornline sounds good, now if they would only turn down the awful synthesized bass in the pit. With 12 tubas, there's no need for electronic rumblings in the background; the one brass hit without synth was great. Shoutout to the mellophone section, who stuck out in a solid and good way. When the execution is up to the level of show design, it will be quite excellent. Colt Cadets: Again, first time I've seen CC. The level of demand doesn't seem as high as the previous 2 groups but it seems appropriate for the younger/smaller Colt Cadets corps. I thought the adaptation and performance of Eric Whitacre's "Equus" for the DCI field was well done, as it's an especially rhythmically challenging piece. The hornline, though small, held its own. Pioneer: I've only ever seen Pioneer once or twice, but always found them enjoyable. Musically, the material was traditional in a way (Pioneer's traditional style/traditional hymn tunes and Irish tunes) but also non-traditional in some of the settings of the music. I liked the brass book, I think the arrangements work. I do wonder if there is more to be done with the props in the show, the move around but don't seem to add much to the overall effect. Visual clarity (some especially notable lines and diagonals) looks like, well, July. The corps performs the show enthusiastically, for sure. Though the hornline is small for world class, they play reasonably well and I'd still rather hear it without synth bass beneath. Jersey Surf: I'm unsure about the midi sounds coming from the pit; I don't mind the added effect of woodwind and organ sounds too much, but I think they'd fit in much more musically if the samples had some decay instead of just releasing keyboard-style. I loved the effect of the plumes gradually appearing on the members through the opener. Surf's hornline is growing up and they have an understatedly wonderful show to work with. The tuba soloist in the Copland and mello soloist in the ballad both played very well. Also loved the return to the navy blue uniforms, it's fitting for this program. I can't wait to see this show in August, as Surf has more time on tour this summer than they've ever had. Colts: I'd been hesitantly looking forward to this show for quite some time since I love Pink Floyd. The corps really delivers. Hearing a hornline of this size and quality play parts of Dark Side of the Moon was really incredible. I don't have much commentary on the narration. I think it was delivered well and I understand that is evolving, though I don't know if parts of it would have been as effective if I had not know it as lyrics from Dark Side of the Moon. Radiohead's Everything in Its Right Place translates to the drum corps idiom incredibly effectively, I wanted to hear more of it. I'd seen a lot of complaints about the vocals in The Great Gig in the Sky, but I didn't find it to be disagreeable mostly on account of knowing the source material. Top split trumpets, and the trumpet section in general, were impressive (I'd noticed that last time I saw Colts live back in '12, too). I'm looking forward to see what happens to this show throughout the season.
  9. There are actually two shows in Illinois tonight. About 75 minutes west of Lisle, six corps compete in Dixon, where it looks likely the Colts will take first place. I don't see another thread for this show, so... Dixon Petunia Festival A.C. Bowers Field, Dixon High School Lincoln Statue Drive Dixon, IL 61021 Here's the lineup, with times again per From the Pressbox: 6:15 p.m. - Legends 6:32 p.m. - Genesis 6:49 p.m. - Colt Cadets 7:23 p.m. - Pioneer 7:40 p.m. - Jersey Surf 7:57 p.m. - Colts Remember once more that those are Central time.
  10. 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!
