I was at the Madison show on Saturday night and loved the Crossmen show.  They were on right after Colts and my first thought was the big boys have come to play. The Colts never seemed to "lock in" with the beat but maybe we missed something as were over on the 10 yd line in the cheap seats, so it sounded a bit muddy.   The Scouts were having uniform issues so marched without their coats and a Scout parent said they were concerned about them making finals this year.  I'm learning the DCI side of things after years of marching band, but found it interesting that my placements of the evening were close.  I would have flipped the Blue Stars with Crossmen.  Crown had their sound that you could feel.  The space between all that tonguing was unreal this early in the season, not sure if that is normal or not, but that was clean and impressive.   We got back home in time to watch a bit of the Zionsville show last night on FloMarching, (too tired to hit the stadium) and my wife and I both think that Crown was a better the night before. Going to be an interesting season and looking forward to figuring out how judging works in this circuit.

I know you must be so anxious to see your boy’s drum corps in action. Will there be a chance for the rest of us to see it on FloMarching?

I don't think they are going to be on FloMarching until the Open class championships.  We already have plans to see them live in a couple weeks when they get going and of course my wife has been sewing on uniforms.  They started this past weekend with a local parade but beginning to learn the field show today after already memorizing their music.  Their first competition is not until 7/11.  I guess things are a bit different with Open class as he only has a 7 week tour and they were less than half the cost of the big boys, which is next year's goal.

Open Class is a great way to get your start before the intensity of World Class. And the insane amount of time and money involved in World Class, oh my! I hope his corps has an amazing season!

Man those Bluecoats are really killing it this season. There are so many amazing shows this season that it's gonna be extra hard for the judges to score at finals this season. My personal favorites from an enjoyment standpoint so far are Crossmen and the Bluecoats. 

 

I can't believe SCV just topped last year's "Highest Note Played in DCI History" with a note that is a whole third above that one. 

 

I can't believe the perfection in tuning and balance in Crown

 

I can't believe difficulty of Boston's show, and I gotta love that Sylvester Stallone reference thrown in there.

 

I can't believe the ballad in the Blue Devil's show.

 

I can't believe a lot of the cool things this season has brought us. This is definitely going to be one fun finals night, not one that you want to leave your seat in the middle of.

I’m going to subscribe to Flo for a month starting on Saturday. Then I can at least watch everything over the next four weeks. I’ll be in Denton next Thursday night. Gonna be a hot one!

Also, I wonder why of all of the videos posted after a show I can never find a Crossmen recording from a recent performance.

Maybe because they are so good that people get so hooked on watching that they forget to record it?  :)  I've seen them live a couple times now and they are good.  My wife calls them her favorite and we have a school connection with their, i think, center marimba.
