  1. 2019 is in the books and what a great year for Bloo it was! Highest score in corps history, High GE, a tie for Top Music and a well deserved Silver Medal! Let’s see how this amazing design staff tops this!
  2. Does anyone know where I can find old Bluecoats summer tour videos? I’m specifically looking for one called the edge from 2010 or 2011. It starts out with someone saying There was a class. A group of people much like ourselves. And then it tells a story about how they jump off the cliff and everyone flew. Thanks for the help!!

  6. For week 22 we are going to Canton Ohio to discuss the Bluecoats. I am excited! What are your top 1-5 Bluecoats 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. 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. Week 2- Jersey Surf- 2012 Bridgemania favorite Week 3- Blue Knights-1994 Trittico for bras band favorite. le
  7. Its common for a corp to experience a downfall after winning a championship (except BD of course), but I'm sure am excited to see where the Bluecoats are gonna go this year after falling to 5th last year (2017 )trailing of the Cavies at Finals. As much as I'm hoping they'll jump back to their traditional uniforms, it seems unlikely cause of the dramatic shift Corps are experiencing in visual prospect. I sure am expecting an exciting repertoire this year. What are your hopes, desires, expectations for Bloo this year?
  8. Hi everyone, As the summer of 2018 approaches, I thought that it would be nice to have a list of all the corps that will competing this summer. World Class Corps 1. The Academy Drum and Bugle Corps 2. The Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps 3. The Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps 4. The Blue Stars Drum and Bugle Corps 5. The Bluecoats Drum and Bugle Corps 6. The Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps 7. The Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps 8. Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corps 9. The Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps 10. The Colts Drum and Bug
  9. Hi everyone, welcome to episode 5 of my corps match up series. In this episode, we will be looking the Cavaliers and the Bluecoats. Looking back at the 2017 season, the Bluecoats did some tremendous things. They continued to move away from “traditional drum corps” and are exploring new ways to perform their shows on the field. They finished 5th with a 95.163 at finals. For the Cavaliers, they still kept their traditional corps look in their uniform but it’s slowly becoming more fainter and fainter year by year. Also, the Cavalier did an amazing thing the night of finals. They managed to s
  10. After seeing the Blue Stars and Crossmen compete neck and neck with eachother all season this year, I began to wonder which corps might be in that same situation next season where they are right next to each other in terms of scoring and placement. My tight grouping predictions for next season are the following: Blue Devils v.s. Santa Clara Vanguard Santa Clara Vanguard v.s. Carolina Crown Bluecoats v.s. Cavailers Cadets v.s. Blue Knights Phantom Regiment v.s. Blue Knights Blue Stars v.s. Crossmen Madison Scouts v.s. Mandarins Troopers v.s. C
  11. I have participated and have been following drum corps for a very long time. I have adopted the changes over the years with open arms. I love most of those changes and have no wish to turning the clock back. I start with these points because I know some punk will accuse me of being old school or for not understanding modern drum corps. Rest assured I understand it quite well and I am very familiar with the judging sheets and scoring process. Having said that, it is a shame what the judges are doing to BC this year. I have watched closely all season and have seen the bias that is so obvio
  12. Time zone = Mountain 4 p.m. Box Office Opens 7:30 p.m. Welcome & National Anthem 7:40 p.m. Seattle Cascades 7:57 p.m. Oregon Crusaders 8:14 p.m. Mandarins 8:31 p.m. Bluecoats 8:48 p.m. Troopers Bloo brings "Jagged Edge" out west on a pilgrimage to one of DCI's founding sites. They brought "Kinetic Noise" to Casper in 2015. You won't find a more perfect venue to encounter Bloo, or any drum corps, than Natrona County HS stadium. There is no running track encircling the performance field. The Western sky is high, bright and clear; the evening ai
  13. So it's the beginning of July. We've got a pretty good idea what most of the corps are doing and what many of them have achieved so far. The sleek new uniforms have been revealed, crazy props dragged all over the field, and people are lining up the strollers in the front row in baby-throwing anticipation. I'm always lurking and reading, and from what I can tell, these are the 5 corps with the most hype right now. (In no particular order) Mandarins - These guys have been slowly building a contender the past few years. They've got a great show design and performers that are keeping u
  14. The 2017 drum corps season has started, and so has my show review season! I reviewed two shows for the June edition of Drum Corps World. The first was the DCI Tour Premiere cinecast on Thursday, June 22. The focus of that review was on the technical aspects of the cinecast. A separate review of the performances is also in the June issue. The second review was of the Innovations in Brass: Massillon show on Saturday, June 24. That review was a performance review of all 5 World Class and 2 SoundSport corps which performed that night. http://www.gaminnet.info/?p=3054

  16. Bloo has stayed away from the narrative (story telling) trend for past few years with their more conceptual shows (Tilt, Kinetic Noise, Downside Up). The only other corps that was really more conceptual than narrative this year were SCV and the Cavies, and I'd still call what they did more "hybrid" type shows because there was definitely a story going on in each of them, but it wasn't explicit all the time. Do you think Bloo's win might result in more conceptual show designs from other corps over the next few years?
  17. Now that 2015 is in the books with another extremely successful season by the Blooooooooooo, ahem, Bluecoats, I thought I would start the 2016 thread for all things Bluecoats related. What show should they present this year? Music? Rumors? I believe the Bluecoats have a great opportunity to continue building a championship contender. It’s going to be very tough, but they have showed us over the last few years that they have the chops to do it. Is this their year? 2010 = 3rd 2011 = 7th 2012 = 6th 2013 = 5th 2014 = 2nd 2015 = 3rd 2016 = ???
  18. 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).
  19. The Bluecoats just recently released this video about their January camp and a (verbal) preview of their 2015 show music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ORD-rl4sSw For me, the Bluecoats are my "corps to watch" this upcoming season. The direction they're going to take after such a memorable season they had with TILT is going to be interesting. Thoughts? Comments? Any other news from Canton? Is it June 17 yet?
  20. Corps (in preforming order): Start Time: 7:30 PM Weather: -The Crossmen Partly Cloudy, high of 97 -The Bluecoats -Carolina Crown -The Blue Devils -Santa Clara Vanguard -Phantom Regiment -The Cadets -The Cavaliers WHO'S ALL GOING???

  21. Great night of drum corps! No rain, only a light wind, packed full house (arrive early, lots of folks with reserved tickets had trouble getting to their seats as everyone "spread" on the bleachers and some spots seemed to dissappear). This is the grass stadium where the MN Vikings have training camp, no track-grass right up to the bleachers-the crowd is so close some drum majors conduct from the stands. My hometown and most fav stadium to play in! Some totally biased thoughts from last night: (i have not seen much of anything live/video/etc for this season, have not even had time to read m
  22. 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?
  23. 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
