  1. Greetings! For about six months now I have hosted Sketchbook Podcast which focuses on creativity, preparation, & effort with artists, creators, & educators. Part 1 of the interview with Chris Komnick, executive director of the Madison Scouts, releases at midnight on April 13th. I fully realize that to many, Komnick and/or the Scouts tend to incite some polarizing posts and threads. But this episode is drum corps related and so I thought I would make sure to publicize here. Ep. 28, Part 1: Chris Komnick (Executive Director, Madison Scouts D&BC) So that y
  2. 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
  3. I need to buy: 4 used MELLOPHONES (F) 4 used BARITONE (Bb) chrome/silver/nickel finish ASAP, for my youth outreach for at-risk teens in the Ferguson, Missouri area. The program is FREE FOR THE KIDS. I have funded this project "out of pocket" for 4 years now, so DONATIONS or KIND-HEARTED DEALS would be greatly appreciated. Guys, please HELP ME! Thanks! KEITH L.

  4. Hey beautiful people! So here are my thoughts. I've been living in Vegas for a year now and there is not much of a WGI presence out here. UNLV has an IO guard but that's the extent of it. I want to start an IW guard here (and maybe IO, IA and scholastic if the interest dictates). My previous groups used bingo halls for funding as many do. I have some connections with a number of businesses out here that may be willing to help with initial start up. I was thinking that since the casino/gambling industry is so large out here, perhaps one or more companies would be willing to sponsor us
  5. Selling a pair of upper deck seats. Friday and Saturday both available. Sit up high: section Q row 16. Seats are in section to the left of the press box, if you are on the field looking up, and nearly the same height as press box. I will eat the service fees. Tickets are being sold at $45 face value. Total price $180.
  6. Legends seems to be in a pretty dire situation financially. They need significant funds to keep the corps moving down the road to Indy. Take a look at the video from their director and consider helping them out if you can: https://www.classy.org/campaign/legendsnow/c138390

  8. Have you guys heard about the StreetBeat5K? It's a 5K run/walk/jazz run that takes place the Saturday of DCI Finals. The fee is only $35, and HALF of your fee goes to support the music program of your choice. You can support your favorite corps, or even a marching band program, if you want! The run is timed, and you get a nice T-shirt out of the deal. I ran last year and had a blast. Let me know if you have any questions. Hope to see you there! (I'll be the one in the red and black/ 9 rings of hell outfit on.. because dressing up for 5Ks is fun!) Susie Harloff htt

  10. Hey gang. I've been trying to get the word out about a new DCI SoundSport group that is desperately trying to form out of a bad situation in Doylestown, Ohio. The alumni from Chippewa High in Doylestown were once a state competitive dynasty getting superior ratings at State Finals to winning a BOA regional title. In April we learned all of our trophies and hard work were thrown into a dumpster by the school (no sports trophies were destroyed...hrm). Trophies from the same program that delivered many DCI and DCA performers as well as a director of the US Marine Corps band. Obviously formin
  11. Sorry all, likely wrong topic but this should be seen by as many people as it can be. GoFundMe typically takes 8 or so percent away from the donations marchers recieve as operating costs plus another 3 percent to go to whomever handles the money (in GFM's case, WePay), and this site http://www.youcaring.com/, only takes the 3 percent to distribute money as well as offering PayPal as an option too. For anyone looking to fundraise, this is a far better idea than GoFundMe. I estimate ive lost 80 or 90 bucks to GoFundMe that could have been put towards fees.
  12. 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 de
  13. Generally speaking, what are the basic ins and outs of running an open class corps? I've heard that the biggest expenses are gasoline, housing, and food, but I have no clue what the rough dollar amounts for those tend to be among OC corps. And then buses and instruments are capital expenses (up front) that you can maintain for years - correct me if I'm wrong. I'd just like some clarification and discussion. EDIT: this is not me trying to start a corps. This is solely for the purpose of wanting to know for my own interest.
  14. Hi everyone! My name is Gabriel Cabrera. I'm a sophomore at Southwestern Illinois College and the University of Kentucky. In addition to being a full time college student, I am an avid fan of marching music, especially DCI. With only 2 years of eligibility left, I figured the only thing better than watching DCI would be to finally take the initiative and join a group for the 2015 season! I'm a clarinet player by trade, but hope to put my brass experience to use by marching tuba for the Colts of Dubuque, IA, in 2015! Being out of the St. Louis area, I have to drive a considerable distance for
  15. Hello DCP Community, My name is Justin Wilkins I am in my fourth and age out year with the Blue Stars Color guard, The past three years that I have spent with the Blue Stars have been the most inspiring, challenging, and overall greatest years of my life. The organization means so much to me for it has not only made me a stronger performer but a stronger, well rounded person. To let you know a little more about myself I am full time and senior student at Columbia College Chicago studying Arts, Entertainment, and Media Management with a concentration in touring and producing live music.

  16. Hi DCPers! I cannot wait to record our new music! If you enjoyed Resonance and are looking forward to hearing where I take the next album, watch my kickstarter video below. Be an integral part of this next project. We've put together some very fun incentives for helping us reach our goal including the Monette Prana Ajna Bb trumpet used to record "Resonance". We can do this together! Please share, spread the word and donate if you're able! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/egogrowth/joey-pero-album-jazz-trumpet Much love! jP
  17. My name is Kyle Oyama and in currently a member of an independent open color guard group called Vox Artium, located in San Diego. I have yet to experience WGI as a performer (not even a regional), and this is probably the last chance I'm ever going to have to make it happen. I greatly appreciate any kind of help I can get! If you can find it in your heart to donate to a fellow color guard member, I will love you forever! Even if it's just a dollar. Also, if you can refer me to people/businesses you know that would be interested in supporting me that would be amazing. Thank you so much, in ad
