Beowulf tosses a mean sabre. I wouldn't mess with him.

Raiders get points for using great technique when stepping up on or down off of the platforms they use throughout the show. 

Also, having the horns right in front of me now, I hear great balance throughout the sound. Shout out to the brass staff for their instruction and to the brass performers for showcasing their skills.

Beowulf is slain, but one of the horn members just took out the monster who killed him.

OK, either Beowulf isn't dead or he's in the afterlife wearing a white robe.

Oh, nice way to start the show, low brass. Also, Mahler is always a good choice.

Great buildup both in the music and in the drill. Corps now center field in a block formation, but they blow out individually and randomly until they form a company front and push forward to the front side.

We have a vocal ensemble. And I already like the way they sound.

Drum feature right on the 50.

Whoa! Full brass sound right in front of me! The music is arranged very well. I'm willing to bet few looked at the list of artists the show is based off of and expected to hear what I'm hearing now.

Each singer gets their chance to shine with the others backing them up. They also do a little thing like turning their baseball cap backwards or taking it off completely so you can see who is on the lead vocal for that moment.

Seriously, they can ALL sing so far. I'm loving this show.
