Well, everyone I sat by last year loved Bohemian Rhapsody.... I did.  I love So Far Away & Paradise by the Dashboard Lights.  I also loved Cavies show last year (which was a first for me) and always love SCV- Doesn't mean I see any similarities............. 

By the way I am biased and proud to admit it - don't you just love Crossmen's mellophone line :P

Contra Line!!!!! GO HUNTER!!!!

Anyone goin to the Chesapeake Show?

Saw Crossmen at Camp Kutchers this weekend! Very strong. What a

difference a week makes! They will spend thursday through Sunday

at Sun Valley HS in Aston, PA just south of the Philly airport. Come

by and see for yourselves. Musically way ahead of last year, guard

catching up soon. Putting the last touches on the show over the four

days at Sun Valley. Things seem on schedule so they look to be ready

for Chesapeake!

:worthy: :)

In regards to the Cadets,

Change the pants back and the performance numbers will take care of themselves. The Dancer in the Dark melody has the potential to be the most musical/emotional moment of the year. When the battery comes in mimicing the accelerating train is just shear brilliance during the ballad. Incredible control.

Btw, if I ever see Hopkins in that swan dress that Bjork wore I will vomit. Tempos are mad and very obviously affecting sound quality right now. You can tell that Gino is back with this hornline in a big way but there were some really ragged moments in Toledo where some shrapnel was flying. Unfortunately the drill does appear to be quite safe at this point. Get some big moves out there to match your sound.

Do not quite get the catholic school girl in a dream thing yet, and the door does look really cheaply made. It might not hurt to paint some color other than green. You have the thing sitting on the 50, which means you want to feature it, so don't trying and hide the #### thing.

Show was obviously not done visually when I saw it. The closer definitely was based off Medea and I certainly appreciated the Twighlight Zone insert.

Cadets certainly have the talent and the show has the potential to become a contender. In it's current incarnation, though, they are looking at they 5-8 range at finals. The good thing is that there is not a better staff out there about rewritting and tweaking things all the way up to finals. Keeps your eyes on this one if they do the right things.

Thanks Bob, will pass the word to a Crossmen dad working in my building. His daughter's a "rook-out" (is that the term?) and he just got introduced to corps. Already has his vaction time scheduled around part of the corps tour. :)
