Ediker Posted June 22, 2018 Report Share Posted June 22, 2018 Blue Stars - Love the Carpenters music. The contrasting pants and workboots look sharp, but they make weaknesses in marching/moving more noticeable. They're having a lot of fun with the concept. Brass sounds good, could be a little louder in parts. Phantom - the new costumes look great. Their brass line has improved. I could've used a little more oomph in the arrangements. Symphony #9 could be more spirited. Regardless, this show is worthier of them than last years. Boston - Boston had a beautiful show. Love Marimba Spiritual. This year's costumes are a slight shock, but they look so much better from on high than 2017's, which faded into the field. The props are great. The closer was moving. No tears from me yet, but I'm giving them time. Wicked Games had more personality at this time last year. SOS is more complex musically and emotionally. The MMs need time to master its delivery. Cavies - Much improved brass. They're marching well. Music is great. Delivery was strong. They're solid, and have the bones of a more competitive show this year. Bluecoats - They are way too cool! Love the whole jazz bar concept. The singer truly sets a mood, soulful yet fun. The props worked well. Leave it to Bloo to take us somewhere new. Crown - not everyone will agree with me, but those costumes are beautiful, from high and up close. I'm not entirely feeling the concept yet. Crown brass (no need to elaborate). Guard was good. Percussion is becoming a strength. The rocking prop is fun. Kinda wish they'd start the show with it. Hopefully they'll do cool things with the other props too. The drill is tough. The show is going to take some time to gel. Right now it's feeling chopped up. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
