What I am Thankful For Today ! My Mother Carol Palmer and Step Father Brad Palmer who keep me grounded and have helped me more than I can say.

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
Colonial ancient fife and drum corps originated in the early period of our history. The marching cadence was 110 (the same as the bagpipe bands of today, also The Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps of US Army), this enabled our foot soldiers to march many miles, also many tunes were played on the fifes which provided them rhythm to march to. Such as Rally Around the Flag, Road to Boston, Yankee Doodle, the songs and tunes went into the hundreds all with the Ancient beat. Instruments were wood fifes and rope tension drums, color guards, flag bearers, muskets all were used then and still with the corps now.
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 ...

(CNSNews.com) - 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 ...

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.

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.

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

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.
if you are a multi-sport athlete, or a DCI, Drum Corps, DrumLine fan...tomorrow's shows will be right up your alley. Giving away listener prizes on-air for The Fit Kitchen Show at 10-11am CST then some awesome tix on-air for the Crossmen Drum & Bugle Corps Show at 1:30pm CST. *HINT?

Today I am honored to attend a service at Valhalla Memory Gardens to honor those brave men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our great country. The program will feature Gov. Mike Pence, VFW Post 604 Commander Joe Hardin, Navy Corpsman Rick Salazar, Monroe County Honor Guard, Southern Indiana Pipe and Drum Corps, Bloomington Community Band, singer Dan Narducci, Bloomington High School North Chorus, Boy Scout Troop 136 Color Guard and Cub Scout Joseph Hardin. 1.3 million. That’s roughly the total number of Americans who have given their lives for this nation since that very first shot in April 1775 in Lexington, Massachusetts that began the American Revolutionary War. To imagine that number more clearly, consider that if you could utter the name of each of these heroes—at one name per minute—it would take you two and a half years to say them all. Nonstop. May we all take the time to appreciate the service of our fallen soldiers this Memorial Day. Their bravery and commitmen ...

To My Mother I really miss you everyday and especially today as we honor ALL Mother I want you to know EXACTLY how special you are. I know although you are no longer here on Earth to guide me that you are watching over me from heaven and with me in Spirit always. As you know I recently celebrated David and I's third wedding anniversary; I really wish you could have met him. The kids are grown now and I truly have learned how hard it must have been for you to let me go off to Phoenix as I did. I've learned that although I may try to guide my children in what is best for them, learned from my old experiences, they still have to spread their wings and learn from their mistakes. I ask to please be with Corey he NEEDS some extra special Grandma Connie love as he is going through some growing pains right now. As for Kortney she has grown to be a beautiful lady; Cloe and her are doing a great job raising little Xander.

Mom Maaka. Mom A. My mom has been an amazing lady throughout her life. Not just to her own children but to all who have had the privilege of meeting her. From the start when she meet my dad and his younger siblings, and being there for them ... to raising us, which lead into drum corp friends, color guard friends, sports friends, co-workers, neighborhood kids, anyone and everyone. I can't recall any of them saying mrs A. It was always MOM A! Love you mom! You are one special lady Patricia Maaka Hawkins-Alberque

From Bill Patterson, Dubiously Esteemed Leader of the Toad Suck Drum and Kazoo Corps: Continuing its DISTINGUISHED TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE, the Toad Suck Kazoo and Drum Corps Marching Band will perform at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 4, in the Mardi Daze Parade – and you’re invited to join the band! The Corps, founded way back in the last century by the wayward toady trio of Jerry Adams, Woody Cummins, and Milton Davis, performs its magic only once annually. YOU can help perform the Band’s old standard music such as “She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Toad Dome When She Comes” and “When the Toads Go Marching In” and maybe even a third number if we think of something we can play. At least five minutes of practice is required for learning the music and the almost-world-famous march steps. So please gather at 9:45 a.m. Saturday morning behind the Toadmaster’s vehicle in the parking area between the courthouse and the fire station. Kazoos will be provided. This is a few minutes of great fun for crazies o ...

Youth Alive Step Team and Drum Corps excited to audition at Apollo Theater:
Just got back from an awesome, albeit short, night at Western! I think this was the first time I'd been back in almost three years! I just wanted to say thanks to David Starnes, Joshua Parker, Kaitlin Sue Saulter, Richard Huffman, Lance Barton, James A. Bowlin, Tony Sane and the rest of the WCU Symphony Band for a fantastic concert! Plus, the icing on the cake is that I finally got to hear a John Mackey piece performed live that was not part of a Drum Corps show! :) And, the brothers of Phi Mu Alpha sang the Alma Mater at the end of their normal traditional singing (must be a new tradition) and everyone around joined in! It was great to get to sing it again! Now, to bed! "Hail to thee, our Alma Mater / Faithful, kind, and true; / Every son and every daughter / Offers praise to you. / Hail to the dearest spot of all; / Hail to WCU! / Light and life and fond devotion / All to thee are due." (Can't tell I miss being up there, can you? :) )
An honor to stand w/ Breezy Point Pipes & Drum Corps. Even more when we march in NYC St. Patrick's Parade!
A Drum and Bugle Corps, also known as a Drum Corps, is a musical marching unit (similar to a marching band) consisting of brass instruments, percussion instruments, and color guard. Typically operating as independent non-profit organizations, drum corps perform in competitions, parades, festivals, and other civic functions. The percussion section consists of two subsections: the front ensemble (or "pit") and the drumline (or "battery"). Members of the battery perform on marching percussion instruments, including snare drums, tenor drums (also known as "quads", "quints", or "tenors"), tonal bass drums, and cymbals. : Color guard (flag spinning). In modern drum corps, the color guard has become a crucial part of each group's visual and thematic program. Standard equipment includes flags, mock rifles, and sabers, but other objects like bare poles, hoops, balls, windsocks, and custom-made props are sometimes used to create visual effects that enhance the show.
Question for those who were in the Drum Corps in Chattanooga. Didn't we march in a 4th of July parade over there in 1969, and then come back to TC and march with the GCHS band too? Seems like I remember doing this. It would've been just before we went to the VFW and AM Legion nationals in August that same year. I'm wondering because somebody posted this pick, which I think I'm in (the taller one with a tenor drum on the right with my hat in my left hand). I suspected if I marched over there it would've had to be early enough to get back to TC for our parade. See anybody else in here you might know? One of the players further back looks like John Myers.

Lynn's Brain Stem Repair Shop Report - Just three years and two months from a catastrophic cerebral-vascular event which destroyed some very important regions of her brain stem, Lynn took herself down to E Street Cinema for a showing of the new Anna Karenina film followed by lunching at the very busy Ollie's Trolley - and today, on her own, got to Chipotle and back. Hal was belatedly celebrating Harold Gill's 80th birthday and attending the Colonial Williamsburg Fife and Drum Corps 55th Anniversary Reunion Planning Committee meeting in anticipation of the July 4-6 celebration coming next summer and enjoyed a pleasant walk through the Historic Area with Margaret Snell Gill before returning to DC to find that Lynn had also made huge strides in tidying the "music room" that Hal has been "letting go" for far too long. Wow...am I lucky!
Did you know that "Pershing's Own" has led the Presidential Escort in every inaugural since 1925? While not part of the inaugural parade, the Presidential Escort is actually a smaller, distinct procession that includes the President and Vice President, the Commander-in-Chief's Guard, the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, as well as Honor Platoons for each of the armed services.
