Heading to DCI Ft. Worth

We are packing up the car and heading to Saginaw, Texas for the first DCI show of the year. The Top 8 from last year’s Finals will be there and we will try to get as much video footage from the lot as possible. We are running all new recording equipment so all drumline videos will be YouTube HD from here on out. We are currently taking a poll over on snarescience.com to see which drumlines people want us to record.  Put in your vote before tomorrow night!

The performance order for DCI Ft. Worth in Saginaw, Texas:

Chase Community Giving 2011

CHASE Community GivingThe Chase Community Giving Project we blogged about last year is on again. Round 2 is underway and a few corps and the organizations that support music activities (DCI, WGI, BOA) need your vote. Each organization has presented a video about their “big idea” on what they would do with the grand prize of $500,00. Each one needs your help, but there are more music-based groups than you have votes. So watch each video, and vote for your favorite ideas. Voting ends on May 25th so you need to hurry!
