Blue Devils = melodies

Bluecoats = 16th note phrases repeated around a ballad

What's hard to believe?

This. Look, I think Bluecoats' book is great too, but apart from the ballad, Bloo's music book has fallen a bit flat for me as the season has progressed.

It's different strokes for different folks, but I genuinely do find BD's music book to be the most exciting this year l

I've noticed crowds have this vibe that can't be manipulated, they collectively seems to support a top corps, and that support can be different each night.

For those of you live and in person, which corps was the crowd with?

I don't understand what it is about BD that people don't get. Other than the god-awful Beiber bit (truly makes no sense and feels very unBlue Devily), it's probably my 2nd favorite show this year. I definitely like it better than INK.

This is the most enjoyable show I have seen from BD in a long time. Other than the Justin bit my biggest beef is their usage of T-Bones. I place their trombones 1st in power but last in taste and effect. Glissing as loud as you can over and over gets old... even for a trombone player.
