I’m not sure the crazies are exactly  “driving the bus.”  I think they “own the bus company” but realize the bus company wasn’t delivering and also partly realize there is pressure to perform. I think if Madison does not improve DP and probably CK are toast.

I believe that is why they hired a winner like Jimmy Elvord who is 1. Extremely intelligent; 2. Introspective and able to learn and  improve upon previous experience (proof-1974 vs 1975) and  3. JE is very Humble-again a personality trait of a “true” winner not someone who licks into presiding over a winning system.

  I am not impressed that DP, as a leader, has an aggressive will to win- I think he’s trying to straddle winning with something else.....I dunno 


CK and DP should have been toast after 2018, if not 2016 and 2017.

Hey all, I just got contracted for Madison on Lead Sop today, and I think the alumni and fans will all love this year’s show. Arguably one of the most demanding Lead books I’ve ever seen from any corp

Given the state of the thread, I got a kick out of seeing this in a shop window yesterday. posted from the DrumScorps app

Having sent tuition dollars to Madison and watched our son grow, mature, and perform the crap out of shows the last couple of years (before aging out) I can tell you I wish nothing but success for the

There have been calls for it for years, mostly quiet, but it’s been suggested, requested, etc since at the last 20 years or so. 

😮 I didn’t know the pressure had been going on for that long. I believe if the Scouts would have remained as competitive on the field as the other green team I doubt they would have started getting that pressure to go coed at all.

Exactly. These 2 have a record of failure.

“Afterburners” by Chuck Naffier... 
Assuming this must be a Chuck Naffier original composition... can't find anything on this one.
“Backlash” by Simon Dobson
YES!! This one has a very Madison vibe to it.. the old-schoolers should dig this one
“715-Creeks” by Bon Iver
YAWN... Sorry... this Imogen Heap clone does nothing for me... the old-schoolers will hate this one. Might as well be called 715 Winks because that's what is gonna be happening during this part of the show.
“Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra” by Benjamin Britten
Love this piece of music, but I don't see how this fits in with the rest of the show thematically. Gonna have to be some pretty creative arranging to make this one work... Not so sure about this one.
“Spinning Wheel” – Blood, Sweat & Tears
“One Voice” by Barry Manilow
Again... I dunno about this one. Seems really mellow to me.. possibly too mellow to be a closer.

Overall, I am not quite completely underwhelmed, but neither am I jumping out of my chair for this one.. I have no doubt the performers will work their backsides off and be great with this.. I just wish they'd been given something better to work with. This show is screaming 15-17th place to me I'm afraid.
