  1. What in the world is stopping FLO/DCI/Corps from securing the Sync Rights to offer a DVR Service, To offer Full audio and Video recording of past shows? Surely ASCAP and BMI don't intend to stop a free market. The prices for these fees are negotiable.. Quick math here tells me FLO is charging $150 a year per person. I venture to say they have 20k to 30K Active FLOmarching subscribers. So annually they get 3 million to 4.5 Million is Revenue from Subscribers. (just ballpark, I'd be curious to know the true number, my estimates where based on the fact that they have 105,000 Instagram
  2. Music City is DCI's newest World Class Corps! Any thoughts?
  3. Anyone on here attending finals this season? I'm taking a road trip from CT with some friends, gonna be there a couple days prior.
  4. Hi everyone, as part of my drum corps poll series, I’ve come up with my next match up. Throughout the 2017 season Pioneer and Jersey Surf went head to head at numerous competitions throughout the season. At the DCI World Championships, Pioneer finished 34th and Jersey Surf finished 27th. Even though there is a gap between the two, that gap might close up next season. Pioneer is on a mission to field a full Corps next season. Within the goal of marching a full corps next season, Pioneer has a goal of marching a full hornline of 80 brass next season. As of right now, they have 44 brass members r
  5. Hi, everyone, before I get to my next match up episode, I wanted to take some time and talk about uniforms in DCI. Uniforms have been around since the birth of the marching arts. However, starting in 2016, a movement began. The Bluecoats won their first championships wearing costumes that were customed designed. When the Bluecoats made their departure, other corps followed the same path. In 2017, The Santa Clara Vanguard, The Blue Knights, The Cadets, The Madison Scouts, Gold, Southwind, and The Guardians made the move to costumes. Seeing this movement makes one wonder how long do traditi
  6. 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?
  7. Hi everyone, This is episode 7 of my match up series. In this episode, we will be looking at the Colts and The Academy. In 2017, both corps experienced changes. New uniforms, new staff, etc. Both corps were neck and neck with eachother. This match up should be very interesting to watch in the 2018. Now it time for you to vote. Who do you think will score and finish higher next season? Vote and well will find out.
  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. Hi everyone, as 2017 comes to an end, I thought that it would be nice to take some time to look back on the events that occurred in 2017. For starters, Blue Devils won their 18th title in 2017 and celebrated their 60th anniversary. Also in 2017, the Santa Clara Vanguard finished in 2nd and also celebrated their 50th anniversary as well. It was the first time Santa Clara Vanguard medaled since 2004. Also in 2017, the Cavaliers, the Boston Crusaders, the Madison Scouts, and the Mandarins made incredible jumps in 2017. The Cavaliers managed to slide into 4th place at DCI finals ahead of
  11. Hi everyone, welcome to episode 6 of my corps match up series. Today we will be looking at an unusual but very interesting pair of Corps today; Golden Empire and Heat Wave of Florida. Let’s start off with Golden Empire. Golden Empire is a drum corps that was founded in 2013. They have stayed local and have competed in competitions along the west coast. In 2017, Golden Empire had one of their best season ever and finished a their season at the Southern California bellflower championships with a 59.70. In 2018, they are scheduled to compete in many competitions across the United States as t
  12. Hi everyone, Here is episode 4 of my match up series. Looking back at the 2017 season, one of the biggest story lines was that the Boston Crusaders beat the Cadets for the first time since 1979. The Boston Crusaders finished 6th and the Cadets finished 7th. Looking at both corps, the Cadets moved away from using uniforms and shakos and made the transition to costumes. Also, the Cadets bought back a show theme from an earlier show that they did in 1983. As for the Boston Crusaders, they kept wearing uniforms and stepped up their game competitively. They beat the cadets for the first t
  13. 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
  14. After noticing that Music City finished 24th at the DCI World Championships and that Genesis finished 23rd right above them, I began to wonder who might score higher because they are right next to each other from a scoring standpoint. Attached is a poll and please vote for the corps that you think will score and place higher than the other.
  15. After hearing about Storm Drum and Bugle emerging out of Indiana, I wondered if there were any other states that have only one drum corps in them and states that are getting a drum corps for the first time. Below is a list of drum corps and the states that they are from. Storm Drum and Bugle Corps - Indiana - Plans on joining DCI's open class in 2020 Arsenal Drum and Bugle Corps - New Mexico - Plans on joining DCI's open class in 2019 Appalachian Gold Drum and Bugle Corps - West Virginia - Plans on joining DCI's open class in 2019 Armada Drum and Bugle Corps - Idaho

In 2020, they plan on becoming a DCI Open Class Corps! #thenewstarofindiana Website: http://indianastorm.net Facebook Page: facebook.com/groups/IndianaStormProductions

  18. After the 2017 dci season, I realized that Les Stentors is the only active corps out of Canada and Quebec. However, I learned that there are a few corps in Canada that are planning on joining DCI's open class in the future. Here is a list of corps from Canada and the divisions that they are in: Open Class: Les Stentors Drum and Bugle Corps DCI Soundsport: The Diplomats Drum and Bugle Corps Les Titans de Quebec Drum and Bugle Corps Corps that aren't in soundsport but are working to come back to DCI: The Blue Saints Drum and Bugle Corps Are there
  19. 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 -
  20. Two Friends of DCI tickets in Section 140, Row 21 (top row of section 140, handicap section is right behind this row. Can stand up to watch corps on the field and not block anyone's view), Seats 5 and 6 are available for Quarter and Semi finals. This section is on the 50 yard line, so you get both great site lines for watching drill and still get your hair blown back with brass! Asking face value for the tickets: $59.00 for quarter finals; $79.00 for semi finals. If interested please post your contact information so that I can get in contact with you.

  22. I was just mulling over the wisdom of buying myself a season pass to DCI Live. Noticed there is a space in the sign up for a Promo Code.. How does one get a promo code? A promo code might get me off the fence.
  23. I got this in my inbox today due to my use of their services. No doubt this is an attempt to do some major PR control. I'm not sure what specifically made them want to send this out though. Maybe issues related to DCI, WGI, and MFA? "Dear #### I would like to take this opportunity to re-introduce Tresóna: who we are, what we do, and why we do it. Tresóna was started, and is currently staffed, by musicians, educators and music fans. We have created a simple and cost-effective licensing platform and are committed to protecting the rights of songwriters to make sure that they are rightfully co
  24. Has the music rights issue permeated the DCI website's "Spotlight of The Week"? Normally there is a 2 minute video of the performance from the corp being spotlighted. But this week for the 1989 Freelancers, there's a video with background music and captions regarding their show, not the performance..
  25. We have a handful of corps that have the talent to win gold, which is outstanding. The sheer number of great ideas this year is more than I've ever seen in DCI, and I've been watching (or marching) since the mid-80s. What pains me most is when show designs hobble great talent, that demoralize almost as much as inspire. What I love to see most is a show design that empowers MMs to achieve their highest potential as performers, as people, and as artists, making the show itself into a work of art that transcends the idiom of drum corps. Usually, it's the show concepts that either click, or f
