2012 DCI West Webcast Review

The first DCI Fan Network webcast of the season took place on Saturday, June 23, as Stanford, CA, once again hosted the DCI West regional. One of the benefits of a Fan Network subscription is the “DVR” capabilities viewers and implement throughout the show, allowing fans to rewind and fast forward through the recording. For those who could not watch the performance live, like myself, this format also presents to option to watch the regional in its entirety. As a result, I was able to watch DCI West as if it was Saturday night. All I needed was a beer and a hot dog. Since I hadn’t “spoiled” myself by checking the scores, I also had no idea what the results were so, for all intents and purposes, I was watching DCI West LIVE!

2012 Innovations In Brass Review

For the 41st time, the Drum Corps International summer season began, this time in Akron, Ohio, at the Bluecoats’ Innovations In Brass competition. Like last year, the first show of the year was also filmed and will be shown to the nation in cinemas all over the country on Monday. Also like last year, the scores for this show were kept secret and, along with the Louisville, KY, show’s scores, will be announced at the end of the cinecast. As a result, the crowd left the stadium not knowing who was on top, although many, including myself, had an opinion as to who placed where and why. Since there were no announced results, I have reviewed the shows in the order of appearance, capping each review off with my predicted placement for each corps. Also, since this was my first read, I tried not to get too specific with each show, hopefully giving my readers a general overview of each concept and level of performance presented by the corps.
