Finals Approacheth

Well, it’s that time again.

Time for the DCA Championships. They are this coming weekend (I fly out on Thursday). And Minnesota Brass is ready.


We may not win– but we are gonna give ’em one helluva show. Seriously, this year’s show is just…



In the past week the corps has matured and grown and achieved nuance and power and emotion and the show has taken on life and fire and heart and I honestly cannot wait to perform it out east.

I’ve never been this excited about any drum corps show. Ever. Not even last year when we won.

On Saturday evening we had a good 2 hour rehearsal at the U of M stadium. And at the end we got in full dress and did a final Minnesota performance run.

A good crowd was on hand, and even after a full day of camp and rehearsal, we smashed it.

We may be going on in 3rd in Prelims because of the way seeding works, but I don’t think it’s gonna matter.

Our show has basically become an 11 minute, in your face, triple dog dare you to knock us down event.

The judges and the crowd aren’t going to know what hit ’em.

  1. break a leg! (not literally, of course)

    I understand cubby and greg are going to be in the audience; I hope to hear some marvy stories from them about your performance!

    I checked the schedule. You’re going on right at sunset. Is that a good thing or bad thing? Greg and I are buying our tickets tonight. Break a leg!

      This is a bizarre setup. Normally, the top
      Corps would be performing like at 8:30 -9 pm. Performing at 6 is odd.

      Please check the performance times, I heard that a corps dropped out so all performances have been shifted up by 17 minutes.

    Way cool! Wish I could be there to see it, and to see Greg and Cubby again. Break a spit valve!
