John Slick

@bostoncrusaders has taken a massive leap in every way this seasons. And that vocalist who's also spinning the whole show is impossible!

Momma DCI

.@bostoncrusaders — So good they made us cheer on a fiery, violent death (& more!) all season long.

God, I love @bostoncrusaders vocalist. The rest of the corps too, but man I can't wait to have that on the CD's! #dci #dci2017

Puritan Thoughts

As a puritan, I truly approved of @bostoncrusaders show. I lived for the burning at the steak at the end of "Wicked Games."

Incredible performance by @bostoncrusaders - I'm a fan, totally, 100%, wow... just WOW! #DCI2017

Tired #####

#dci2017 GOT ME SHOOK @bostoncrusaders were amazing!!

That @bostoncrusaders show just. It just. I need a moment.

I love your show concept,@bostoncrusaders. SO WICKED. Incredibly realized. And your vocalist! Won me over. #GUILTY #dci2017 #dcifinals

Renee Robbins

By far, she is the best!!!! @bostoncrusaders

I've seen @bostoncrusaders 3 times this week, from as low as on the field to as high as the media booth. Blown away every time. Incredible.

When the @bostoncrusaders opened the door to release the fire the audience was SNATCHED #DCI2017

Rob (Crash_86

@bostoncrusaders should've come out for retreat with like 43 guard ... and an urn.

Also, @bostoncrusaders win the all time Visual award for that fire!

Congrats to @bostoncrusaders on going from 12th to 6th this year! See you at 3rd next year ;) #dci2017

This season has been one for the books! @bostoncrusaders has a new place in my (heart) #dci2017

OuroborosBennieMac 

@bostoncrusaders with the biggest jump from one year to the next since the invention of the 7 valved bugle. Jk, that show was awesome

I WILL march for the @bostoncrusaders at some point

@bostoncrusaders had my favorite show this year like that's a show I would have so much fun with

I just love @bostoncrusaders and I'm so proud of their show and how they scored and how hard they worked this year. Just wow my heart's full

Your show was by far the best drum corps show I have seen! @bostoncrusaders

Brandon

Replying to @bostoncrusaders

Although you guys didn't place 1st, your show itself was number one in my book. Congratulations. Amazing job, everyone.

Glad to see BAC back in the top 6. Next year should be even funner to watch I think. With the talent likely increasing even moreso and the staff now done with the so called transitional year.

I'll admit that when people were predicting BAC in the top six back in May and June I thought they were crazy. I figured they would be 8th or maybe 7th at best. Man, they proved me wrong! They definitely won me over this year and I was thrilled to see them climb all the way to a much-deserved top six finish. I can't wait to see what they come out with next year and I'm hoping to see them continue to climb.

Careful now, lot of people complaining about legs showing this year.  LOL.  Congratulations to you all for helping to give these kids an amazing year.  You are an incredible staff and all Boston alumni are proud and thankful.  You are a good looking group.  Very different looking than when you were all in Vermont.  Ha ha ha.

I just wanted to add my voice to the chorus of fans who absolutely loved this show!  It was, hands down, one of the best live drum corps experiences I've ever had - and, given that I've been involved with this activity for over 30 years, says something.

Looking back, there are only a handful of shows that stirred my emotions like Wicked Games. The commitment to character, talent of all sections, and stunning production values all combined to put 12 minutes of pure magic on the field.  Then, if that wasn't enough, that absolutely brilliant "burn at the stakes" effect at the end was, by far, one of the all-time best pieces of visual mastery that will be talked about for years to come.

Thank you, BAC, for Wicked Games...a show I will talk about and savor for many, many years.

BAC Merchandise/Souvie question ..... I know i saw pics of BAC's souvie area at Finals... and i 'assume' they may have sold out of MANY items still listed as available on the website (not FACEBOOK), is there a telephone # or someone to email to get an update as to what is still available?  Or, should I order what I want and hope for the best?    I wouldn't want to place an order, have my card charged & wait 1-2 mos for it to arrive.... I've had that happen in 2011 with another corps....   Any contact info out there?
