2017 Legends Drum Corps Open – Social Media Coverage

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.

First, if you’ll be at the show, be sure to check in on the Legends Drum Corps Open Facebook event page and/or Google+ event page.

Second, I’ll be posting my thoughts and photos of each of the performing corps on my social media accounts. Make sure you follow me on TwitterFacebookGoogle+, and Instagram.

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.

Competing corps:

  • Colt Cadets
  • Legends
  • Les Stentors
  • Music City
  • River City Rhythm
  • Shadow

Whether you’re coming to the show or will be following along online, I hope to see you next Saturday!
