  1. Happy Thanksgiving! This week we are headed to Milwaukee for Pioneer. This group has been around a long time and had a lot of A60 and DII success. Looks like their best WC/DI success was 16th.

For a quick recap in case you missed it and/or want to add your contributions: Week 1- Cavies- 2006 the Machine is the favorite and 2012 15 min of fame is the least favorite.

  4. I thought it would be cool to start a weekly thread about what performances we loved and didn't love about each corps. For week 2 we are headed to Denver to celebrate and discuss the Blue Knights What are your top 1-5 all time Blue Knights shows? (Optional) What are your 1-3 least favorites from them? You can go into as much or little detail as you like but please please try to keep things positive! I am a huge BK fan so my long answer will come later today- I am pumped for this thread. For a quick recap in case you missed it and/or want to add your contributions:
  5. DCI is a little dry during the off season. I thought it would be cool to start a weekly thread about what performances we loved and didn't love about each corps. I am starting with the Cavaliers because I think they are easy to discuss without things getting out of hand or dying quickly. What are your top 1-5 all time Cavaliers shows? What are your 1-3 least favorites from them? You can go into as much or little detail as possible but please please try to keep things positive!
  6. I thought it would be cool to start a weekly thread about what performances we loved and didn't love about each corps. For week 2 we are headed to New Jersey to celebrate and discuss Jersey Surf. What are your top 1-5 all time Jersey Surf shows? (Optional) What are your 1-3 least favorites from them? You can go into as much or little detail as you like but please please try to keep things positive! I am hoping to see a lot of love for the non top 12 corps!
  7. Hello! I'm a trumpet player and I write and play my own music, mostly for trumpet ensemble. I'd like to share with you my new in-progress web site. I just started it last night. https://www.blazingmusic.net/ I give away most or all of my music for free; let me know if you are interested. There are recordings of me playing most of it in multi-track using GarageBand. Example: https://www.blazingmusic.net/audio/trumpet4/100_fanfares_for_four_96.mp3 Sincerely, Robert Walliczek

  9. Over the 15 years of my DCI fandom, there has been a strong move toward explicit theme and direct storytelling. In 2014, Crown did a show about outer space. It's pretty much the consensus view that it wasn't the greatest design, but hear me out. In the beginning of the season, there was the Major Tom introduction, an overly-long but timbrally-intriguing percussion feature, the echo effects etc. One of the (many) great things about Space Oddity by Bowie (RIP) is that it trails off at the end. The listener is left to wonder what happened to the astronaut. Did some small valve on his spaceshi
  10. I marched with Troopers in the 80s and find I still enjoy following drum corps, not only nostalgia but also keeping up with present developments and competition. I make it out to 1-2 shows a year. I look forward to the discussion and reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.
  11. From Facebook: "2014 SNEAK PEAK: We will be playing "The Hymn of Acxiom" by the wonderful new artist Vienna Teng." "Also, according to his twitter, composer Eric Whitacre is currently transcribing this powerful piece for chorus." This is awesome. Vienna's music is amazing, and THoA is especially beautiful. Listen to it here (she's not a new artist, though; she has 5 CDs going back to 2003).
  12. In the past few days, the Hurricanes have announced their 2016 Program & Design Team! See the information below, and click here for a clip from the local news station plugging our Open House, coming up on November 28 and 29! 2016 Connecticut Hurricanes Program Announcement The concept of Freedom is multifaceted. It is a concept that represents the opportunity to embrace a system of beliefs, to choose methods of expression, and the ability to pursue one’s dreams.

  15. I wonder how many people in attendance at finals aren't knowledgeable about a corps show seeing the corps production the first time during the season....I mean that they haven't watched any videos or heard any part of the corps all summer long, not even knowing the title of it at all. I would image most of those who attend finals have at least seen a video or music.....what do you think? percentage wise anyway.
  16. The purpose of this post is for us to discuss all the interesting and fun program points of last year's shows, 2014. I want to start a discussion where we can share what we thought was cool, congradulating the creative design and the performers. Comments should be focused on how a show's element (music, drill, guard movement, costumes, props, sound effects, music choice) helps tell the story of that corps' show. Please start your post or comment with what corps / show you'd like to discuss. And please keep it positive. I'll start the conversation with this: CAROLINA CROWN - OUT OF THIS W

  19. Just posted on Madison's facebook page: Madison Scouts 2014 -- Playing the Music of Stan Kenton and Don Ellis. Finally, jazz again!
  20. There's an afternoon occurance in Arkansas where on a hot summer's day, sometimes the clouds will decide to explode and dump eleventy billion metric tons of water. A perfect set-up for a drum corps show, no? God would not have any of it, as He took His mighty hand and shoved that mess aside just in time for the 8pm delayed start. I wish He would have thrown in a big divine blow-dryer as well. We could have seen full-on versions of these great shows with no short-cuts or boo-boos. That being said, a great evening was enjoyed by all, including my two teens and their tag-along friend. I will be
  21. Are you in the NYC/tristate area and want to march Drum Corps? Crimson Kings Drum Corps RECRUITING BRASS, FIFE, DRUMS and COLOR GUARD for Soundsport this summer. Who we are… For those of you who may not have heard of us, we are the Crimson Kings Drum Corps. We are a junior corps established in 1953, our history is of award winning competitions, championships and exhibitions, one of the only remaining New York City Drum corps, we march with the classic G bugle sound. Practices are “weekends only” and are conveniently located in NYC Chinatown. We offer a lighter rehearsal sche
  22. The Centurions are pleased to announce their 2014 Program: The Journey Join the Centurions as they leave their home in search of exotic new lands. The journey begins as they set off through the streets of the Great Roman Empire. Their departure is announced by the triumphant strains of the third movement of Respighi's Fountains of Rome, which is heralded in by proud trumpet fanfares from the far reaches of the field. Our regiment continues their march east, only barely avoiding being drawn into a fierce battle between Serbia and the Ottoman Empire. Tchaikovsky's March Slav is heard as the C
  23. Lately I saw a high school marching band do quite a credible job with one of my favorite pieces of music, Maurice Ravel's Pavane pour une infante defunte ("Pavane for a Dead Princess"). Thus was I reminded that this song is supposedly part of the repertoire of the Blue Stars' 2008 show "Le Tour: Every Second Counts". While I adore that show and have listened to it a couple dozen times, at least, I've never been able to pick out that particular tune in their mix. (This work should not be confused with Gabriel Faure's lovely Pavane that was used in the Stars' preshow that year.) Did they in fac
