  4. 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?
  5. After reading through the 2015 predictions thread I've noticed that not many people are counting on the Bluecoats to be top 3 or even win DCI this year. I'm just curious as to why this is? It looks as if the Bluecoats have the same exact staff this year. You would think they would be better than they were last year. After hearing rumors about the show I honestly hope they are true. And also after seeing a video of them in January marching, they look like they have a whole lot stronger visual program this year.. Anyone care to explain?
  6. If you live in the southern California and want to march drum corps this summer. City Sound has a few brass spots left that need to be filled by Memorial Day camp. If interested visit our website and fill out an interest form and show up to our Memorial Day rehearsal. We have several scholarships available to assist with fees.
  7. 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 into drum corp I began to love the sound that the crown brass had and could only dream of ever being a part of the horn line. I was always a great player but just the sheer amount of money that was required to participate in the groups made ever joining one seem impossible. After graduating highschool and working on my own I decided to take a leap of faith and audition for the corp of my dream Carolina Crown in 2014. Although showing potential I was cut the February camp and I was devastated. This disappointment only made me drive more and this year I re-auditioned got a contract! This will be my first year marching drum corp and as a 20 year old this is one of my last chances. I had believed the hard part was out of the way but realizing the limited work schedule I had due to school it caused my severe lack of funds and even though all of my money has gone to the corp that I made I was still severely behind on payments. Just in tuition alone I have $1,575 left to pay not to mention my camp fee, spring training, and uniform fees left. If you were to decide to donate your donation however small will greatly help me accomplish my dreams and give me a music educational experience I will always remember which would mean the world to me. To help you would need to follow this link to the Crown store and put my name down in the member name field at this link: Also here is the Carolina Crown main website to find out more info on the corp: Also I will leave my email address here to contact me directly for any more info: Please consider donating or possibly sharing this with someone who would like to donate and continue to grow drum corps. Be blessed :) Juwan Murphy
  8. 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 desperate need for help with this fee. My parents are doing all they can, but they also have financial committments, which means it is up to me to try to raise the funds. If you, or anyone you know could possibly help, I have a gofundme account with which you can donate. My gofundme is Any donation is greatly appreciated! Please, I really need help. It would be heartbreaking if I couldnt march my dream due to lack of finances. Thank you!
  9. I have been looking for a mouthpiece for a little bit now and was wondering the differences between a DEG 6V and a Kanstul M6, which is what i have and am used to but is damaged and ugly because it's from a school horn. the DEG I've heard is great but i was just wondering the tone differences and if I'd have to get used to it. (please no other recommendations, i am asking about the DEG only, not "but this one's better" type thing).
  10. Thank you to everyone who came to our Open House on March 1st!! We had a great turn out and are excited about the potential of this year's corps! We would like to see everyone again at our next full corps rehearsal - Sunday, March 15th from 9AM - 6PM at Gahr High School. PERFORM IN THE ROSE BOWL THIS SUMMER WITH CITY SOUND!!
  11. SDCA Texas is announcing the formation of a The Texas All Stars Alumni corps. This will be a parade corps comprised of former members of any corps. The corps will perform at parades around Texas, and is open to anyone who wants to participate. The first performance of the corps will be on May 2, in Corpus Christi Texas(on the Gulf of Mexico), for the Buccaneer Days Night Parade. The Buccaneer Days Night parade, draws approximately 200,000 people, and would be a good way to gain exposure for Drum and Bugle corps in Texas. We are planning a entire weekend of fun for anyone who wants to join us. We are planning to participate in other parades/events, in other parts of the state. if you are interested , send me a private message, for more info.
  12. For the past 2 summers I have marched with the Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corps out of Canton Ohio, and it has changed my life completely. Performing in front of thousands of people and touring the country completely changed who I was as a person. I learned how to push myself beyond my limits and to accept nothing but perfection. Over these summers, the people I had barely known at the beginning of the summers have become my family by the time August rolled around; and that is the family I wish to return to next summer. In order to return to my family next summer, I have to put forth around $2,500-Which is the average price a member of any Drum and Bugle Corps pays. I have already taken care of a majority of those tour fees but I still need some help with the rest of the tour fees and the extra cost associated with marching. (Camp fees, etc.) My Bluecoats family is worth a lot more to me than my tour fees, and I hope that you all can see that and help me by donating. If you want to talk to me about my experience last summer, or need more convincing to donate, don't hesitate to e-mail me! Anything and everything helps! GoFundMe Link: Email: Six Words, Ryan
