1990 Velvet Knights is DCI DVD Spotlight of the Week

Recommended Posts

One of my favorite years. To me, the ones that have incredibly strong corps 1-12 stand out. 1990 is definitely one of those. (Loved VK's drum feature that year!)

From the very start of the show, it was clear the corps was continuing on its path of defying convention. The drum major took out a baton from behind his neck and then dropped it on the field; a spoof of Phantom Regiments drum major routine. A brief statement of the melody of Summertime (from Gershwins Porgy and Bess) kicked off the production, just as fans eyes were finally adjusting to the psychedelic pattern of the stretch pants the brass and percussion members were wearing.

Yeah that was me! :tongue:

At the end of that number, is VK spoofing Madison '88, by having the cymbal line frame the soloist?

I don't think so. I saw that same thing in a number of shows back in that era. But I could be wrong.
