2017 Legends Drum Corps Open – LIVE From the Stands! Coverage

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!

2013 WGI Indianapolis Color Guard Regional

Next Sunday (2/24/13), I will be at Warren Central High School in Indianapolis, Indiana, to review the WGI color guard regional taking place there. Prelims are Saturday but I’ll be traveling and visiting family in the area. The Finals event starts at 9 Sunday morning and goes until about 5 and will feature many of the top guards from the Midwest at every competitive level. If you’ll be there, either as a spectator or with a competing unit, come find me. I’ll have my Glassmen corps jacket, covered in patches for easy recognition, plus my iPad and/or laptop for taking notes about the shows.

You can find more information about the regional at the WGI website:

If you won’t be there, be sure to follow me on the various social networks for one-shot thoughts on each unit. You can find all of my social networking goodness here:

See you next Sunday!

iOS 6 Review

For Apple fans around the world, this week is about as close to an international holiday as a non-religious event can get. The fun starts this Wednesday, September 19, as the latest iteration of the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad operating system, iOS 6, is made available for public download. As with each previous release of the OS, iOS 6 promises many new features and one interesting omission. I have had the chance to load the Gold Master of iOS 6, which is pretty much the final version of the operating system released to developers, on my iPhone 4 and have been playing with it for the past few days, so I can give you an idea of what to expect when you pull the trigger and upgrade your iDevice in the near future.

2012 Innovations In Brass TONIGHT!!!

I will be at the 2012 Innovations In Brass drum corps competition, the first competition of the 2012 DCI season, tonight, starting at 7:30 PM. The show is at the University of Akron’s Infocision Stadium and will feature six of last year’s Top 12 corps:

Blue Stars
Phantom Regiment
Carolina Crown
Cavaliers
Cadets
Bluecoats

I will be a fan for this show, so I won’t be doing a DCP Live From the Stands live blog. I will, however, take some photos and post my thoughts on each corps after they perform. There is no retreat tonight, as the scores will not be announced until Monday’s cinecast event, so I won’t live stream the retreat ceremony on my Ustream channel, although I plan to do so at other shows I attend.

If you’ll be at the show, look for me. I’m wearing my blue Glassmen horn line t-shirt and shorts and I’m short, so I should be easy to find. 😀

Let the fun begin!
