2019 Drum Corps Tour

UPDATED 5/22/19 – The first Drum Corps World review assignments are out. I have updated my schedule below to show the reviews AND Drum Corps Planet live coverage I’ll be providing this summer. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates as the schedule is further finalized.

Now that I follow and attend indoor events during the winter and spring, there is a sense of withdrawal which takes place between WGI Championships and the start of the drum corps season. Fortunately, that period is only for a couple months, but it’s still there. In order to get myself psyched for the upcoming season, I love to plan out what shows I will go to throughout the summer for both DCI and DCA. That plan is what you see on this page.

Note that at least some of these shows will also feature live coverage by me for Drum Corps Planet and/or a show review by me for Drum Corps World. There may also be a few other things in the works as well which I am not at liberty to discuss at this time. I will update this list with which shows get what coverage from me.

2018 Drum Corps Retrospective – DCA Finals

And so we come to the end, my friends. Once again, the Reading Buccaneers win the Open Class title, and deservedly so, while Carolina Gold pulls off an upset in Class A. Now it’s back to scanning Twitter and Facebook for videos and waiting for marching band season to start.

2018 Drum Corps Retrospective – DCA Alumni Spectacular

It’s Sunday morning, so we all go to the Church of Drum Corps for the Alumni Spectacular. It’s always great to take in “old school” drum corps performances, and all of the performing units brought their A game. The only down side to this show was that the sun came out. While that normally wouldn’t be a problem, the sun managed to take a cool and cloudy weekend and convert it into a steam bath almost as soon as it showed up. Still, live outdoor drum corps is worth the sacrifice.

2018 Drum Corps Retrospective – DCA Prelims

And so the final weekend of the 2018 North America drum corps season begins. While I was not in the press box for any of the shows in Williamsport, DCA did give myself and fellow Drum Corps World journalist William Aldrich-Thorpe seats in the center section right in front of the press box to ensure we had a great view to report from. With 19 corps to review as well as cover live, I was pretty busy with just this show alone!
