I love the corps in the all black uniforms, but they made them even better with the maroon plumes and the accents they added to the sash on the front. The guard uniforms are incredible and the metallic color scheme of the overall design is very eye catching.

You know what this means.

I'm going to have the best Finals live blog EVAH!

I'll have to go back thru the thread and see what it was you said, Gadget, that caused the firewall to say "uhhhhh-uuuuuuuh".

On The Waterfront, which the main corps performed in 1986, is a very effective opener for Cadets2 this season.

I'm usually very nice to firewalls, considering my job and all.

The pit just all doubled up on instruments and played some wicked licks.

Ballad. I'm assuming it's "The Next Place". It sounds like the ballad from 2009 Blue Stars, but I'm not 100% sure.

Guard is on swing flags, filling the field with great visual effect, while the horns are all on side one performing the impact of the ballad. Incredible drum corps moment and the crowd loved it.

I'd be surprised if it was our ballad from that year considering all our music minus the preshow and closer was original music that year lol

Very metallic pit sounds, both synth and foley effects.

Guard performing on gear platforms while rotated by corps members.

Drum feature. Very tasty.

Guard equipment is large wrenches.

Hey, remember that moment in Crown's show that everybody liked. Cadets2 do it, too, and it's just as fun and effective.

I think it's the preshow.
