It’s a bonus when I can attend a local show on my birthday! As I celebrated my 44th session on this world, I took in one of the last Open Class shows of the 2018 regular season as DCI Championships loomed ahead. I always want to give as much love to the Open Class corps as possible as they don’t get as much attention as the World Class corps do.
My review of the 2016 Shoremen Brass Classic drum corps competition is now published in the August 19th edition of Drum Corps World.
You can read the review here.
You can also check out this and all previous digital editions of Drum Corps World here.
My LIVE From the Stands! coverage of the Shoremen Brass Classic can be found here.
Finally, I’ve created a Google Photos gallery of pictures I took during the competition. You can view it and add your own photos to the gallery here.
Tonight, I will be providing LIVE From the Stands coverage of the 2016 Shoremen Brass Class on Drum Corps Planet. Join me LIVE from Avon Lake Memorial Stadium in Avon Lake, Ohio, as I provide updates, analysis, and photos as the show happens. My coverage will take place in the Drum Corps Planet discussion forums so watch this post as well as my social media accounts for the link on show day.
I am also writing the show review for Drum Corps World. This will be a more polished run down of the performances from the night and will be published in one of the August 2016 editions of Drum Corps World. You can subscribe for free to DCW on the publication’s website, http://www.drumcorpsworld.com.
