The 2017 drum corps season is kicking into high gear as DCI begins its stretch of major regional events. This also means that drum corps is coming back to the Midwest soon! In two weeks, I’ll be providing LIVE From the Stands! coverage of the 2017 Emerald City Music Games competition in Dublin, Ohio, on Monday, July 31st. If you’ll be at the show, be sure to say hello!
It’s just one week away from the 2017 Legends Drum Corps Open, part of the DCI Open Class tour. As you may know, I will be covering the show for Drum Corps Planet as part of our LIVE! From the Stands series, as well as writing the show review for Drum Corps World. Being the 21st century, there is also a social media component to my coverage and the experience.
Finally, be sure to follow each of the corps on their social media accounts as they post photos and updates before, during, and after the show. You can find a list of drum corps social media accounts here.
- Colt Cadets
- Les Stentors
- Music City
- River City Rhythm
Whether you’re coming to the show or will be following along online, I hope to see you next Saturday!
One of the side benefits of living in the Midwestern United States is that a good portion of the annual DCI tour takes place within driving distance of my home, especially during the final few weeks of the season. After almost a month of no live drum corps blasting my face off, the time is coming for me to get my fix once again. You can join me as I’ll be providing LIVE From the Stands! coverage of the 2017 Legends Drum Corps Open competition in Three Rivers, Michigan on Saturday, July 22nd. If you’ll be at the show, be sure to say hello!
The 2017 drum corps season has started, and so has my show review season!
I reviewed two shows for the June edition of Drum Corps World. The first was the DCI Tour Premiere cinecast on Thursday, June 22. The focus of that review was on the technical aspects of the cinecast. A separate review of the performances is also in the June issue.
The second review was of the Innovations in Brass: Massillon show on Saturday, June 24. That review was a performance review of all 5 World Class and 2 SoundSport corps which performed that night.
You can find my cinecast review here.
You can find my Massillon show review here.
You can also find my LIVE From the Stands live blog coverage of the Massillon show here.
UPDATE: Photos I took during the Massillon show are located here. I’ve opened the album to allow you to add your photos as well!

With the completion of the 2016 drum corps season in North America and Europe, the withdrawal symptoms are starting to set in. I may or may not have searched for videos of corps performances on YouTube and I’m sure you may or may not have, also.
In order to tide you over for a little while, here are the various reviews I wrote for Drum Corps World, the LIVE! From the Stands coverage I performed for Drum Corps Planet, and the photos I took at many of the shows I attended this season. Please feel free to enjoy and share these as we count the days until the 2017 season is upon us.
