2017 Favorite "Moments"

Recommended Posts

There's been a lot of talk about shows from this past season, but are some of your favorite "moments" from this past season.

1) Soloists in the BD ballad.

2) Cavaliers quad feature, and also the "joke" in their show each night.  Semis and Finals jokes were fantastic.

3) Anything with Phantom's color guard.

4) Crown's opener intro

Honorable mention: Not actually in a show, but on one of George Hopkin's Facebook live sessions, after semis I believe, someone put in the comments, "Jesus was cool!"  I about pi$$ed myself when I read that.  Hilarious.

I would have to say:

1.  Boston's Witch burning, and also the acting in Wicked Game

2.  BD's Off-the-Line beginning

3.  Mandarins' awesome take on Sound of Silence

4.  Cavaliers running "joke"

The Wife LOVED BD's entry onto the field.  They performed it VERY well.

During the Little Green Men section of the show, one of the members would grab a microphone and tell a joke, usually one that involved innuendos. My personal favorite of these was something along the lines of "Alright Semifinals, how are we doing tonight? Ya know, I gotta be honest. Being a member of The Cavaliers and being around these guys means that I always see a ton of (sad trombone sounds)... Green."

Two favorite moments:

Boston's witch burning. My son hadn't seen the show until Finals, and I didn't tell him what would happen. It was a pretty amazing moment.

Bluecoats reprise of the opener at the end of the show. Gave me goosebumps as they got everyone on their feet.

In no particular order:

1. Blue Devils starting their show "old school" and with a 16 snare drum line. 

2. Blue Coats tubas running down that ramp without tumbling. 

3. Crusaders witch burning and vocalist

4. Academy "Kill the Rabbit"

5. Jersey Surf plume switch

6. Cavaliers spinning drums

7. Phantom guard

8. Crown vocalist

9. Madison Scouts make-up artist

10. Seeing fans actually cry during the Cadets closer and Amen chord.

Some that haven't yet been mentioned

  • The Cadets vocal ensemble
  • The trumpet feature in BD's closer
  • Phantom's arrangement of the Rachmaninoff piano concerto (this work is one of my all time favorite pieces of music)
  • Mandarin's color guard & those cool pen nibs

Often overlooked because it followed the god-like ballad, but BD's blob form where everyone rocked back and forth with one single member staring up at the audience during the intro to the drum break was awesome.
