That I have shelter and enough food to eat I am thankful for other friends , Nise Myers, Sarah Yen, and William C Schultz for also keeping me grounded, Letting me know when i was screwing up something and their great friendship and humor that lifts my spirit on a consistent basis including many other Drum Corps friends past and present who are also there for me. To my former departed teachers Neal Tidwell and Arnold Jacobs for their friendship and wonderful genius as performing artists and more importantly top notch people of great character. I am also thankful for my wonderful relatives who have passed but helped shape and mold me. It was my great honor to know all of them and be touched by their wonderful loving spirits ...

Went to DCI Semi-Finals in Indy yesterday...awesome. They were all spectacular, but still a fan of The Big Green...go Cavies! (They came in 6th, but that's OK--still a treat to see them.) The field was loaded with talent and some seriously stiff competition--pretty amazing to see how Drum Corps has changed since we marched with the SK's; lots of props, voiceovers, and sound effects--seems like anything goes, which make for lots of creative license, and a rousing good good time.

This is OLD SCHOOL Drum Corps, and what its all about: This past Sunday, after our DCA debut, the Bushwackers marched in the Barnum Festival Parade in Bridgeport, CT. After waiting over 45 minutes to board the shuttle bus from our housing site to the parade stepoff, the shuttle buses provided by the event WERE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND!! Holly Marino, Director of Fusion Core, offered to share their buses in order to get the Bushwackers to the parade start JUST IN TIME for step-off. WHEW! To show our thanks and love for their support, the Bushwackers Hornline and Battery lined up at the end of the parade and performed a standstill of parts of our show for the Fusion Core members. They, in turn, setup and did a standstill for us! It was a great moment, attracted many from around the campus, and both Corps cheered on each other! This is why this activity is not solely about the competition field, and we at the Bushwackers concentrate on the family component of Drum Corps. We are ALL Drum Corps brothers and ...
Happy Flag Day to the Fort McHenry Guard Fife and Drum Corps, 1st Maryland Infantry, longtime Parade participants...
About a year ago I started looking into starting a not for profit organization that would raise money and offer scholarships to help pay band fees for high school students, buy instruments for kids who can't afford them, or pay fees to march in Drum Corps. I sort of abandoned it because it isn't something that I can do by myself. It would take an entire team of people who are committed to furthering music education for high school students. But, more and more I am hearing about kids that are not able to participate in high school band programs because of how high the band fees and trip costs can be. I think I am going to revisit this idea and see if I can find other people who are willing to be involved. Every year, thousands of kids are given college scholarships based on the talent they develop in high school band. I think it's something worth supporting.

This day brings back wonderful memories of my dear departed mother, Mary Ellen Fields. She raised myself and my two great brothers, Jamie Fields and Larry Fields. She got us through those crazy years of Boy Scouts, Drum Corps and the break up of her marriage to my dear departed father Loren Fields. She taught us to be good boys, to keep out of trouble, and lots of life lessons that we have never forgotten. One lesson she taught us the hard way. As the years went on she became more disabled and ended up in a wheel chair. As a teenager she smoked and I guess my dad did for awhile. But I never saw her smoke when we were living there in the house with her. My dad moved Sacramento for his job and we stayed behind to finish school. They never did reconnect like most divorces. The one thing she taught us that none of us ever forgot: To never smoke. She was living all alone with the three of us spread all over the world. The firemen said it looked like she was sitting in her wheel chair smoking, she must have fal ...
Drum Corps event a 14-year triumph By Patricia Andrews Journal Times Staff (August 1977) When Kenneth Pias started Drum Corps Day in 1964, letters were ambitiously mailed to governors, representatives, senators - and President Lyndon Johnson. President Johnson didn't show, but he did send his best regards. Over the past 14 years, Pias has unfailingly invited the nation's highest dignitaries to the celebration given by drum corps groups in the city in appreciation of community support received the preceding year. True, not all of the dignitaries have made it. Not one president has taken time off from affairs of state to come to Racine. But, thinking BIG never hurt. When Richard Nixon was invited in 1972, some may have thought he would agree to come and thus also make Racine a campaign stop. He didn't, but Pias didn't mind. Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wisconsin, couldn't come to the first event in the summer of 1964. The Civil Rights Act was coming up for a vote that summer and Proxmire, known for his attenda ...

I have been blessed with so many mentors in my Drum Corps life. Gene Laus, my first trumpet teacher, Bookie Bridge, the first man who taught me not to take a suckers bet, Buzzy Schultz who instilled the Brotherhood of Corps, when he fixed my parents furnace on a very cold Christmas Eve because "Ya gotta take care of family regardless of the day on the calendar", Frank Hamilton who taught me hockey rules, Carmen Capone my dad's best friend. And all the many fabulous corps folks from my days in Florida. I well not call *** Filkins a mentor, he was closer to a father. The one person, who was the most influential to me was by far a French horn player in the Rockets named Denny Smith. This man taught me more about being a person than anyone in my life. A gentle giant, with a heart of gold!
Top Secret Drum Corps was cool but the secret is Drum Corps is in UK. Like us here in Stafford
IMO, DCI's biggest problem is their branding. What is a "Drum Corps International?" "Is it a bunch of drums in formation?" "How many countries are involved?" "If it's a Drum Corps, why are there brass players and colorguard?" Please change the name to reflect the activity. Tie into BOA. "The Bands of America Summer Music Games." Add woodwinds and sell it as the best marching bands you've ever seen. Right now, we're stuck with a brass, drum, and guard band that angers the old fans, but doesn't seem to attract enough new fans to make it a viable business model. I don't see the ultimate direction and goal of this business. Strong Corporations can show a 10 year timeline for their organization. What is DCI's 10 year goal? Maybe Dan Acheson told the Board at the recent meeting about his plans, and I don't know about it. How does this recent change make our summer marching band activity viable and sustainable for students?

The Blue Saints drum major auditions are now complete and after several excellent candidates the Blue Saints have selected for the 2014 season George Martinez. George comes to the corps with many years of musical experience, getting into music at an early age of 5 years. Starting off with the piano, George quickly advanced. In Grade 7 George picked up the trumpet and from then he knew that his passion was for music. In 2010 George had his first opportunity in the Drum Corps world with the Kingston Grenadiers. He then went on to becoming a member/visual tech of the McMaster University Marching Band throughout the 2011/2012 season while still in school. George then joined the Empire Statesmen from Rochester, NY for the 2012&2013 seasons. In December 2012 George became a Brass instructor for the Hamilton Firefighter Alumni Corps. George also was a guest member of the Preston Scout House in 2013. George enjoys playing with various organizations from NY state and Ontario. He is currently the Lead Trumpet with ...

Ok so Donna gave me 12 a long time ago so here are 12 things you may not know about me! 1. I am half Puerto Rican or a Hungarican 2. I was a music major in college first 3. I was a Med Lab Tech before a nurse 4. I worked at Jersey Shore 23 yrs 5. I LOVE Bruce Springsteen 6. I marched in Drum Corps from the age of 12 till I was 34. 7. I have 3 close friends that span 25 yrs and over 8. I used to do musical theater 9. Lenny and I met online...9 wonderful yrs together 10. I met Bill my hubby in a hospital 11. I have 2 beautiful grandchildren but no kids ;) 12. I am deathly afraid of bridges!
I got 16, like this and I'll give you a number. 1) Music is my life. 2) My main instrument is tuba, but I can also play trumpet, trombone, euphonium, and piano. 3) Once I finish my undergrad as a Music major (BA) I want to go to grad school and get my masters in tuba performance and hopefully go on to get my doctorate. 4) Classical is my favorite genre of music, hands down. 5) A lot of people say I'm quiet, but once you get to know me, I'm actually a very talkative person. 6) The one thing I look for in a woman is personality. I'm not much of a stickler on appearance. I'll take personality over appearance ANY day. 7) Now there is one thing I love about appearances on women, and that's glasses. I LOVE glasses. 8) My favorite Drum Corps is Phantom Regiment (if you don't know what drum corps is, go look it up, and NO, it's NOTHING like the movie drumline!) 9) I don't have a voice like bing crosby, frank sinatra,scott hoying, etc. But I LOVE singing 10) If I could play a woodwind instrument, it would be a tie ...

( - An organization that serves British and American soldiers and its families was told by Union Station security in Washington, D.C., Saturday that it could not play its bagpipes, because it did not have a permit. The Allied Forces Foundation (AFF), which helps wounded soldiers and their families in the United Kingdom as well as the United States, had a luncheon at Pizzeria Uno’s on Saturday for their families and supporters in the buildup to the Marine Corps Marathon, held the following day. As part of the event, a couple members of the AFF’s Pipe and Drum Corps played a couple of tunes on bagpipes to entertain their group, as well as the general public. The pipers played on the balcony which faces the main promenade, but several members of Union Station’s security team stopped them, because they did not have a permit to play. Maj. Steven Cain, MBE, one of the founders of the AFF who served for 20 years in the British Special Forces, explained that the entire incident was “ridiculous ...
I miss Drum Corps season. :-( Saving up to audition for Phantom Regiment in the fall! :D
What a great lineup of Drum Corps! Blessed Sacrament, Golden Knights, Crusader Senior Drum & Bugle Corps & more!
2 more days of work and I am off until July 22! Friday's weather looks perfect for a 4 hour trip across Lake Michigan to Wisconsin on the S.S. Badger! Will be at the Mall of America that night in time to take a look around. Then heading to a prelim show with the top Drum Corps in the U.S. on Saturday in Minneapolis. Dekalb, IL on Sunday afternoon - Scott and Josh will continue on home, and Jared and I will be left there to begin our "volunteering / touring with the Bluecoats through Thursday the 18th (Justin's B'day) - flight home from Little Rock, Arkansas that night.. sleep (after a shower!) on Friday, enjoy the weekend and then back to work on the 22nd :-) I am so excited!
The Rockford Corps marched in the July 4th parade in Rockford, playing G bugles. I continue to be amazed how young people, as young as the age of 6, respond to the concept of Drum Corps. If every child would have this opportunity, things would be a lot different in music. The people after WWI knew what they were doing, in terms of establishing patriotism for their country. It's interesting that the only thing that will ever precede the Rockford Corps is the American flag.

Why do I get so nervous when performing at Drum Corps shows? I have done this how many times? Wicked nervous about Friday.
Wishing everyone a happy 4th of July, have fun and stay safe. We're hosting a 4th of July cookout tomorrow for some friends with fun lawn games included. At 7:00 PM going downtown to listen to the Stars and Stripes Annual Holiday Concert (Purdue Summer Jazz Band, Tippecanoe Ancient Fife & Drum Corps, Lafayette Citizens Band, The Freedom Singers and Indiana All-Star High School Show Choir) and at 10:00 the spectacular Lafayette fireworks! On Saturday we are going to another cookout (we're guests this time) to have a belated 4th celebration. Good times ahead!
We will be helping with technical support at the annual Stars and Stripes Celebration on July 4th. that will include the Purdue Jazz Band, Citizen's Band, Fife and Drum Corps, and the Freedom Singers will begin at 7 pm. Fireworks will be fired from the lookout point at the end of Brown Street in West Lafayette at dark (around 10 pm).
Greetings Raider Band members. Congratulations and thank you to those students who represented us at the TAMU/Commerce Leadership Camp and to Sheryl and Joseph this past week at the UT/Arlington Drum Major Camp. We are putting together a volunteer band to ride on a trailor and play a few tunes for the 4th of July parade. The parade is at 4 pm on the 4th. Dress is VERY casual and cool. The parade is just under one mile and will take about one hour from the time we leave the band hall until we return. We will have 1 rehearsal on Tuesday, July 2nd at 6 pm in the band hall. This is a volunteer band, so come if you are in town and can do so. Feel free to invite former Raider Band members who are in town on College breaks, friends from other schools, as well as any adult who still plays well. I have tickets for the July 18th DCI Drum Corps show at UNT in Denton. The tickets are $40 each and are sold on a first come, first serve basis. There are currently about 15 tickets left. I will be in the band hal ...

How many people on will be attending a Drum Corps show of some kind this season? Share, comment!
Two Age-outs give their thoughts as they head into their final week of Drum Corps ever.
Just got back from watching a Drum Corps show at the movies. The Cadets, Bluecoats, Phantom Regiment and Spirit of Atlanta looked great.
There are some things I miss dearly: Swamp, church, CSU, Mill Creek, and my dog, Molly. But I am glad I took this summer off to do Drum Corps. Phantom Regiment has a way of making people whole.
Yipe off to eat a burger at Red Robin and then to the movies to see the 2013 DCI Movie . Drum Corps fans are you ready to be amazed YESSS. And Bluecoats, Boston Crusaders, Cadets, THE CAVALIERS, Phantom Regiment and Spirit of Atlanta are your bands Ready. You may take the field Gonna be an AWESOME AWESOME MOVIE
Scores from the June 22 Innovations in Brass event in Akron, will not be released to the corps or the public until the Drum Corps at the Cinema: DCI Tour Premiere, coming to more than 450 movie theaters nationwide on Monday, June 24 at 6:30 p.m. local time.
Drum Corps show at Merrillville, IN tonight. My three favourite corps of the night, Madison, Crossmen, and the Troopers. Madison was wonderful. Well designed and well executed for the 2nd show of the year. Gonna be really something when it is cleaned up a bit. Crossmen are great until the last minute of the show, hope that is worked out. Look forward to seeing them again. The Troopers had me from start to finish. Musically pleasing while maintaining an edge in arrangement. Some ensemble issues in the brass voice but a lovely sound anyway. Wishing them all the best in the weeks to follow.
