  1. LETS GET BACK TO DCI AND THE 2019 SEASON.
  2. The website says it all: CantinaIndigo.com
  3. A letter just sent to BDB parents that they are also remaining on west coast. Open Class Finals will be missing the top 2 Corps next year.
  4. Will switch to Peckville when it comes on. This is the old Scranton PA regional all Northeast DCA Corps except Fusion Corps. Now without Minn Brass a pretty complete line-up considering Atlanta CV and Gold would have already performed earlier in the day on the DCI stream.
  5. Can we start a thread with all of this information? I've seen a few corps releasing public statements such as Cascades, OC, and Blue Knights. Cascades: https://www.seattlecascades.org/single-post/2018/04/06/Seattle-Cascades-Response-to-Philadelphia-Inquirer-Article Oregon Crusaders: http://oregoncrusaders.org/response-inquirer-article Ascend performing Arts (Blue Knights) https://ascendperformingarts.org/ascend-continues-focus-on-members-workplace-safety/
  6. Probably a lot of you all know about this site. For all you really old times I came across a blog site NanciD with uploaded copies of old drum corps news. The site is Historical Drum Corps Publications. http://historical-drum-corps-publications.blogspot.com/
  7. Hey all OC has been looking for Class A CDL drivers and cook staff to join the summer, and have been reaching out all over to share this opportunity. I'd thought I'd share here in case someone here fits the roles or knows someone who does. http://oregoncrusaders.org/job-postings Sorry if this should have been done differently, I wasn't 100% sure how to share this.
  8. Southwind Drum & Bugle Corps is seeking two musicians, a guitarist and drum set percussionist, for its 2018 production. The guitarist must read music (not just tablature) and be versed in classical acoustic guitar. Prior drum corps or marching band experience is desirable but not required. The percussionist must be able to read music. Experience performing with marching ensembles is preferred. Both individuals must be able to meet the time and financial commitments required for a touring DCI drum corps. Rehearsal and touring schedules are available upon request. For more information and audition packets, please mail southwind@southwind.org.
  9. Watchmen enters into the 2018 season in their fifth year of competition, and they are stronger than ever. Starting as a brass ensemble in 2013, Watchmen has grown into a full size open class corps and will be touring this year in California, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado. This year’s production is entitled “Altered”, where they will test your altered states. The original composition by Harry Hutchins and Paul Rendon comes in four movements and will evoke images of psychological manipulation, covert intelligence, and mind control. Will chaos ensue? Let’s find out… http://www.watchmenartsassociation.org/2108-production/
  10. The FREE Players Drum and Bugle Corps one of Long Islands only Drum and Bugle Corps to play at Nassau Coliseum for the NY Open Tennis Tourney.
  11. Watchmen open the 2018 season with a successful 1st audition with 80+ potential candidates for a brass, guard and percussion position. Executive Director, David Becker, welcomed everyone for attending, introduced this season’s staff, and presented the plans for the 2018 season. https://www.watchmenartsassociation.org/a-successful-first-audition-day-for-2018/
  12. SDCA is looking for Music , Percussion or Design professionals that would like to advertise for free.. go to ..thesdca.org to sign up
  13. 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 obvious. It appears to me the judges have a grudge of some sort against them. Is it the guard outfits? I read the corps changed to longer shorts due to complaints about a little butt cheek or two showing. Is it because the judges believe it is destiny for BD and SCV to be fighting it out during their anniversaries? Maybe it is because they don't have enough pretty colors. I noticed BD has pink in their uniforms. That certainly must be worth an extra 3 or 4 points in visual. It apparently outweighs the extreme drill design BC is marching. Unfortunately, the scores are simply the opinion of a select few judges. They are human and have biases. This years "collective thought" appears to be against the Bluecoats. That truly is a shame given the energy and talent this corps has. The message the judges are sending to all: don't do anything risky, keep your drill simple and clean, focus on having a strong palette of color choices and color guard, both have more impact on your overall score then drill, brass, or percussion. Fast is old school. March slowly and precisely. When playing, be sure it is loud and try to stand still while doing so. If you are going to march at a fast tempo, be sure to do it while not playing. And finally, never ever make the young women in the guard where something feminine. Modern women are not supposed to be feminine or sexy.
  14. If you haven't heard (and if you're a drum corps fan, i don't know how you couldn't have), screenings of "Scouts Honor: Inside A Marching Brotherhood", the award-winning documentary filmed and recorded during the Scouts 2012 season, has started screenings across the country. If possible, can we pin this post so screening sponsors can list their events? I'll start... The Velvet Knights Alumni Corps is sponsoring the only Southern California screening of the award winning documentary, "Scouts Honor: Inside a Marching Brotherhood". The screening is scheduled for Thursday, January 15, 2015, at the Edwards Anaheim Hills 14 in Anaheim Hills, CA. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE BY ADVANCE PURCHASE ONLY! THERE ARE NO WALK-UP TICKET SALES! Tickets are $10.50. To reserve tickets, go to: http://gathr.us/screening/9782 This is a fundraiser for the Velvet Knights Alumni Corps. But we need a minimum number of tickets sold to make this happen. Even when you pre-purchase you tickets, your credit card will NOT be charged until the minimum number of tickets are sold. Filmed over the course of the 2012 season and recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound, this theater event is the closest you'll come to hearing a drum corps show live. To see the trailer, go to this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQeQDbRbRt0&feature=youtu.be
