We spent a lot of the time in the streets of Indianapolis where the corps spread out doing “In the Lot” warm ups and their preshow run through. We are looking forward to once again creating the greatest stage in marching music, and to doing that this summer! Since the Kansas State University marching band has their own YouTube channel, The Pride of Wildcat Land, while the University of Kansas doesn’t, I’m sharing one of the former’s videos today, 2017 Central States Marching Festival. Yes, another wildcat band in purple. These Wildcats also played a song performed before by a Kansas drum corps, “Home on the Range,” again played by the Sky Ryders, although they also played “Rawhide” and “Shenandoah,” both part of 27th Lancers repertoire in 1970. Both the drum corps and Western influences are strong with this band. Those of my readers who have been following the drum corps activity since the last century or who have seen videos of corps from then might recognize two songs played by the KSU Wildcats played by Kansas drum corps, “Channel One Suite,” played by the Argonne Rebels, although made more famous by the Blue Devils, and “My Favorite Things,” played by the Sky Ryders.
Over the years a lot of corps have played music from “West Side Story,” but for many fans, Sky Ryders’ 1987 12th place show remains one of the most memorable “WSS” shows ever. It’s also quite possibly the most memorable show to ever place in 12th at the DCI World Championships. This drama isn’t being played out in a corporate boardroom but on the football field, Drum Corps Videos as marching groups converge on Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, for the Drum Corps International (DCI) World Finals on Saturday. So, Blue Devils for May Day it is; some resources are better used now instead of being conserved. I say that I’m an adult now and I can take care of myself thank you very much (well most of the time I can take care of myself). I plan on continuing this series on May 12, 2020 when I move over one state for the Nebraska Democratic Primary, scheduled to take place on that date. The state awards 47 delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention, of which 41 are pledged delegates allocated on the basis of the results of the primary.
The 2020 Kansas Democratic primary will take place on Saturday, May 2, 2020, and is the sole contest scheduled on that date in the Democratic Party presidential primaries for the 2020 presidential election. As my main interest in marching music is Drum Corps Videos corps, I will begin with a corps that hasn’t been in Kansas for 30 years and hasn’t existed for 26, the Sky Ryders. Of course, if I have a Rose Parade band from the state, I’ll showcase it, so I present the Louisburg HS Marching Wildcat Band – 2018 Pasadena Bandfest recorded by Music213. I conclude with Music213’s video Louisburg HS Marching Wildcat Band – 2018 Pasadena Rose Parade. “Drum corps is like marching band on steroids,” Pla said. The penultimate show, Drum Corps Videos like the first, was a patriotic retrospective of America in a moment of crisis, Drum Corps Videos but instead of the 1960s and 1970s, the 1995 Bluecoats were commemorating World War II. 9:15- I love that moment when the guard pairs off to act out a dramatic scene, but you can still see them counting beats in their heads. Where can I see them around here? Words can be said and moods can change.
In 2001, The Academy Brass & Percussion Ensemble was formed to give some of Arizona’s finest young musicians an introduction to the incredibly unique activity of drum and bugle corps. This brand new ensemble first took to the field in the summer of 2014 and found great success as Arizona’s very first SoundSport ensemble. Our partnerships are strategically designed to yield maximum benefits, providing year-long marketing platforms to build brand equity and drive sales. The DCI Championships, first contested in 1972, are the culmination of the drum corps season. Shoremen Brass Classic Drum Corps International (DCI) competition at the Avon Lake Memorial Stadium on Friday, July 31 at 7 p.m. For those who perceive America as one of extreme excess, “American Variations” responded with, “Yeah, what about it? And while we’re at it, here’s even more of the more, more and MORE!” Pushing home the unabashedly patriotic theme were red coats, white pants and blue sashes on the brass and percussionists and red and white stripes inside the blue color guard dresses, just in case the red, white and blue flags didn’t quite convey the message. The brass and percussion were attired in military dress uniforms and the color guard members wore clothing and hairstyles of the 1940s. Tunes from the era highlighted the personal battles at home and the military battles overseas.
