I was at the Walnut show last night. A few thoughts.

Academy...great new uni's. Amazing first 1/3 of the show, good enought to fight the big dogs, just didnt pull it off for 100% of the show. Not the kids fault, the show just goes flat.

Santa Clara...damn those kids can drum. Great sound. HUGE overacting by the "characters" almost made it too comical. No way they should have beaten PR.

Phantom...WOW. WOW. WOW... I am still truely at a loss for words as to how rich and full and beautiful their sound is. Those words arent strong enough. just WOW!

Blue Devils. Weird. loved the music. great guard. weird props. Now lets talk about the microphones. I am fine with electronics, but if you have to use a mic for your trumpet soloist, find a new one that can play louder. not at all impressed that they did it throughout the show. Do what you have to, doesnt mean I have to respect it.

Have a great 4th!

Heading for an early dinner in Toledo, Ohio at Tony Paco's tomorrow then on to Bowling Green for the DCI show. Looking forward to seeing the Cavies and Crown in person!

Did ya ever get to Packo's before it turned into a tourist trap?

If ya want a really good meal head east on Woodville Road and right across the street from the refinery is a place called Earl's or Cousino's. Awsome steaks at a very reasonable price, and right on the way to Bowling Green!

Let me know how that show goes, that stadium is a wind tunnel!

Thanks for the tip, Mike. I wish the Glassmen would have their show back at the U of T. I am not that fond of BGSU. I will fill you in on the show. The weather is perfect for a show tonight!

The weather last night was perfect for a show, there was hardly any breeze and the temps were more than comfortable.

Packo's was good, No crowds when we were there because there wasn't a Mudhens game.

BGSU was a good crowd. Lots of people out to enjoy a great show. Since it was the 50th anniversary of the Glassmen, lots of stuff going on there.

WOW to the corps last night. Only show I can say I am not fond of is Teal Sound. I don't like the electric violin or guitar. Maybe I am a purist.

Colts uniforms remind me of gatorade.

Or maybe, just maybe, when you go to a drum and bugle corps show, you expect to hear drums and bugles?

Hey Mike, totally forgot you do this thread here...Happened to see it as I scanned recent posts...

Here is my take fwiw...I HATE ELECTRONICS PERIOD

Ok, done!

Phew, I feel better now that I got that off my chest! DCA RULES...no crap, just drums and bugles and some still in G...go figure!

BTW, have you heard about Cadets2? The plan is to put a corps in DCA All Age division, but check this out, there will be an age requirement of 16-22, but they will consider 23 and 24 year olds...hardly sounds like "all age" to me..heck they should be letting old folk too..huh Mike, so you can come out of retirement..

One thing for sure, since I know some of the management in DCA, Hop will have a tall order if he thinks he is going to step in there and dictate what is going on!

Hey Coach Rick, good to see you again!

I do have to say that Crown has got one great show and the crowd is into it. They had me during their pre-show.

BTW, Coach, I retired from teaching last month.

pinnie, nice to see you, and congrats on your retirement...I am semi, but not my original choice, low enrollment led to less hours...but I am spending more time as a travel agent now, and loving it!!!!

I am liking PR's show this year, but waiting for SCV to come alive, meaning I think they need to buy into it a bit more and sell it! Yes, Crown was in New England recently, and only thing I did not like was the electronics...guess I am too old school.

I haven't seen anything thus far, but I'll be in Atlanta for the show! I can't wait to see them all under one roof so close to finals! Go Blue Stars!

We are flying to Minneapolis tomorrow for the show on Saturday! I am hoping that this show doesn't get rained out like last year's did! The line up is amazing!

We just got back from our weekend in Minneapolis and the DCI show last night. All I can say is WOW this year! Last year, we ended up spending the evening in the stairwell of TCF Stadium due to severe storms. This year it was HOT.... HUMID HOT. But it was one fabulous night of drum corps. We arrived in time to see all the World Class corps and were not disappointed. I did see a lot of changes from last week's show in Bowling Green and the movie last month. I was so anxious to see Madison and boy they were worth the plane ride.

Next stop, Murfreesboro, next week, then on to Indy for finals!
