Just wish Madison fans on the Internet would show a little class and congratulate the performers from BAC and Academy rather than insult their shows and imply that their achievements are so much DCI f

I think it would be great if DCI would give all active duty corps fans, deployed overseas, complimentary subscriptions to DCI Live! That might be something the Board of Directors can discuss.... Tha

19 years in the Navy and counting, just re-enlisted for five more years. Drum corps has helped get me thru alot of deployments in the summer months away from home. Being able to wake up and log on and

I want to see them revisit something along the lines of Cirque. 2003 might be my favorite Scouts show ever. I've also always wanted to see them play nothing but Malaga and Malaguena. Malaguena!!

But at the end of the day, don't we all really just want to see the Pirates of Lake Mendota return?

Still no answer as to why no one is playing Latin or straight up jazz.

I'm curious the answer to this too. Drum corps playing jazz is the reason I listen to so much jazz now (literally now, I have Sirius Channel 67 playing right behind me in the office).

My own thoughts would be:

1. It's been done so many times.

2. Hard to tie into a 'narrative.'

3. Tempi are pretty static, wouldn't score well in 'content' subcaptions.

Having said these things, BD almost won five years ago with a mash up of Burt Bacharach. So...

Yes!!! A modern version of 1995's "A Drum Corps Fans Dream" would be outstanding!. No one is playing latin or jazz so it would certainly be different & we know it would win the crowd.

No Latin or Jazz or anything remotely recognizable to anybody except maybe College Music Majors.

As much as there is that I don't like about current "Marching Band On Steroids" I could live with all the nonsense if the Music was there. It Aint! Just a bunch of off the wall musical phrases and passages. Nothing I recognize and can get into.

DCI used to be primarily about the Music and "In Your Face" loud G Bugles blasting out songs that we all liked. Drill was secondary.

Somebody, anybody, please take a leap of faith and bring back "Old School" music. Keep all your modern theatrical BS if you simply can't function without it, but bring back recognizable music to the field.................. :thumbup::worthy:

Wow! Did you not hear any of the music performed this summer?
