DCI 2011 Thread....

Well I guess it's time for the DCI thread so get going!

Lets start this out with an old classic, Cadets "In the Sprintime When the kings go off to get married!"

Someone we all know marched this show.......any guesses?

http://www.myspace.com/video/carson/cadets-1993/8509915

So show us videos of you marching, or some gossip, or your travel plans....

I googled DCI and still can't figure out what it is!

From google it's possibly:
Drum Corps International
Dialysis Clinic, Inc.
Digital Cinema Initiatives


So i'm at a loss....

You got it right with the first one!

And I am trashy enough to admit I like parking lot videos!

HAPPY DRUM CORPS SEASON!!!!!!!!
Dont forget about DCI at the Movies monday night, showing the Texas shows from this weekned.

And as much as I totally love "In The Springtime" by the Cadets, I really really really love 'To Tame the Perilous Skies". Both shows were cutting edge and stunning though.

So who went to the movies?

The sound here could have been louder, and no sound at all after intermission, till about the start of Cadets. High School kids and their constant texting drove me nuts!

BD - Good show, I like the music, but it sure aint the 2010 show!

Cavies - I really liked them, they will win or come in second.

Phantom - After hearing the music about two weeks ago, I was disappointed in the visual, but it's only June. We also need more Elsa's procession!

Crown - Absolutly loved it! I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say they take the whole thing in Indy!

Cadets - I think the duel uniforms is gonna hurt them in the visual department, and I dont really care for the show. Whats with the new cumberbunds? They make every kid look 50 pounds overweight! And put the chin strap down UNDER your chin and you can wear your Shako's with no problem!

SCV - Kind of got ripped off tonight, I think they will do well with this show.

Bluecoats - I dont remember a damn thing about this show, probably most disappointed in them so far this year.

Bluestars - I like the show, cant imagine how much rehersal that guard is missing out of for hair and make-up, but it was good.

I thought the scores for Friday night were right on! Saturday I can see, but I thought the first set of scores was more accurate.

I DO NOT like how DCI has been split into the "Top 8" and "everyone else".

I also would add I was surprised how each corps was pretty much ready for the first show, a few missing drill endings, but overall they did a great job!

Aw Mike, wish I knew you were going, I would have joined you. But then again I completely forgot about it after having been stuck in a meeting all day.
I so hope you are correct with the Crown prediction, they truely have captivated me for years now and really deserve it
Thinking we may have to take a road trip the end of July

So happy it's DCI season again!

First, it was nice finally meeting you, Mike, in Indy last summer!

Next, we were at the movie on Monday night also. BD did nothing for me. Hated the props, can't stand the hair flippin by the guard. Loved the Cavies, The Cadets, and Crown's shows. My expectations were high for PR, but alas, they let me down. I want more of the ending and more passion. Didn't feel Juliet at all! SCV was men for me, too. Husband enjoyed the Blue Stars. I can't remember the Bluecoats show, and that surprised me.

This summer, our plans are: Bowling Green, Ohio (a little oven an hour's drive), then on to Minneapolis, Murfreesboro and then Finals week.

Looking forward to seeing Madison on the field this year!! Last year they finally won me over!

MADISON is for real this year! Top 6 at least. Their closser is amazing. The ballad is stunning. Total package. (when havent the Men of Madison had a great package )

I got goosebumps off of YouTube. So trying to get back to Minnesota for the show. And jealous you get to see Madison out in Orlando.

Going to 3 shows this weekend. Should be fun. SCV, Blue Devils and Phantom there. Cant decide who to go watch.

Suncoast Sound played that ballad back in 1984! Another Robet Smith production!

Was that the show with the Vietnam Wall across the back. Never got the credit it deserved.

And check out the MADISON SCOUTS in 5th place.

Hey, Mike,

Did you hear that DCI is back in Whitewater, WI for the first time in many, many years this summer?

I checked for you but the bar with beer in buckets has gone OOB...sorry

But I hear beer is bad for your nose anyway.
