The Innovations in Brass show in Akron, Ohio, was my first live drum corps experience of the 2018 season, both as a spectator and as a performer with Rhythm In BLUE. This led to some interesting logistical issues when it came time for my live coverage, but I was able to make it work, as you will see below.
Not only will the 2018 Innovations in Brass be my first live drum corps event of the season…
Not only will I be providing LIVE From the Stands! coverage of the show on Drum Corps Planet…
Not only will I be writing the show review for Drum Corps World…
I will also be performing for the first time with Rhythm in BLUE!
My review of this past Monday’s “Drum Corps at the Movies” DCI cinecast event was published today as part of Drum Corps World’s June email blast between full magazine issues. You can find my review on page 20 of the PDF file located at http://www.high-velocity-media.com/Magazines/jun_2012/jun_22_2012.pdf. Enjoy and please let me know what you think!
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:
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!
