2019 DCI Review #4 - THE BLUECOATS - part 1 of 2

Recommended Posts

I got my 2019 DVDs last week and have watched the first disc a couple dozen times already.  I thought I'd give my reviews of the top five and see what anybody thinks.  Next: the Bluecoats - this is the ONE SHOW that got me back into drum corps after a hiatus starting in 2009.  The Beatles are my favorite band and I never guessed that a drum corps could pull off putting pop music on the field - something I feel no group has done successfully before.  Some unpredictable selections like Within You Without you and I Want You (She's So Heavy) really shows the design team knew what pieces would work better on the field than, say, She Loves You or The Long And Winding Road.  The arrangements really worked too.  However, I know this was supposed to be a rock concert but the near total lack of traditional drill was a real shortcoming.  This is supposed to be a drum corps show too.

For some, Winter Guard International has become a major influence on corps productions/attire.

I would say that The Beatles and an incredible design team influenced this show more than WGI...
