So, I had two rehearsals yesterday, 12-4 with Rockland Defenders alum corps and 4:30 - 9 with Mass Brass to get ready for Thursday nights show in Lawrence, also got 50 yard line seats for the show following our performances. So, once again, quick uniform change from one corps to the other, then settle in to watch SCV, Cadets, BD's and Boston...could be the night that BAC overtakes SCV.. Really looking forward to Key Poulan hearing us for the first time with his charts... What a great writer he is!!!!

Thoughts on the Orlando show....

That stadium is nasty! Our seats were covered in bird crap an inch deep, and the stench was unbearable! Think Manning Bowl! We were in luck as there were a bunch of seats right below us that were clean and we snagged two of them.

Teal - Not impressed. Very dirty for the end of July, and sorry, but violins just chap my rear!

Glassmen - Interisting show, I think they missed the ball in the theming department a little. Who is this couple and why should I care about them?

BK - Loved their show! "From Revere Massachusettes the Blue Knights!"

Boston - Really liked the show, but dont understand why they took two wonderful pieces and mixed them together? Both pieces have enough material to cover a 10 minute show, but I guess it's "artistic" LOL The Ballad had me chocking back tears, so beautiful! I dont like the uniforms, they are "too red", I thought the orriginal uniforms were a darker red, Hmmm maybe they were just old! LOL And why does the drum line change plumes half way through the show, am I missing something?

The best part of the show for me was the instant encore's! I think DCI should really look into adding this to more shows! I really appreciated some of the music, especially Blue Knights!

Well, guess you didn't miss anything since you saw them change plumes.

Yeah, I heard about that encore thing...well hoping they do it this Thursday...my pocket HD camcorder will be waiting..

I was at DCI Atlanta and was very entertained by the top 8(and of course my Blue Stars) I don't understand some of the scoring, but who does? I introduced my bf to DCI and while he was bored at the 2 corps after the BlueStars, he was really into it by the time the top 5 came.

The more I look at some of these "Instant Encore" things the more I like it!

Gives a corps time to play their corps song or a signature tune...or sometimes just something awsmome!

Yep, I like that too...kind of reminds me of days past when we used to play ourselves off the field after full corps retreat, when you could either play a celebratory tune, or a revenge type, I'll show them second place my *** !!!

Your right though Mike, very entertaining, kind of like "retro-drum corps".

We are driving down to Indy on Tuesday and will be there until Sunday. Home base will be at the Staybridge Suites across the street from Lucas Oil. We will be at all 3 nights performances! We will also be attending the Friends of DCI breakfast prior to the parade on Saturday.

I noticed they are putting the souvies on the main floor this year as opposed to downstairs. Also the main entrance will be on the EAST side of the stadium.

See everyone there!

Smart move! I had to leave a trail of bread crumbs last year to find my way back!
