I'm Gabby, this is a blog! Marching bandits, enjoy! Don't hesitate to ask me questions and submit cool things. Peace, love, percussion. Help me march drum corps this summer! Anything will help!
If you stepped out of your comfort zone and auditioned for a corps this year, congratulations. That shit takes guts, and no matter the outcome, you should be pretty damn proud of yourself.
Finally updated my about me cause it’s been a while lol
I came to the second day of camp to see Sam play and I felt like such a weenie cause I was geeking out so much. It was amazing, I felt inspired just watching. There were so many people there from all over, and that was just for this camp. I bet in total there are close to a thousand people who auditioned/are auditioning between all the camps. I could feel the sense of competitiveness in the air, even though people had already been given their callbacks. And the horns sounded spectacular. It’s so different being on the other side of the wall of sound. I haven’t been able to experience that much since I’ve been in band all season without seeing many other bands. Makes me miss the days of competing. I can’t wait till I go to my first camp though! I probably should’ve done this one. I would’ve learned a lot, but I don’t have 175 dollars right now so….
Anyway, Sam got a callback for baritone and I’m very happy for her! I just received my Blue Stars music (which is actually quite similar to Bluecoats, actually) and I’m going to practice my ass off and send in a video in the next week or so considering the deadline is coming up…
I’ll post some pictures and videos later or tomorrow! I got a little bit of the drumline segment and The Boxer and Creep from the brass segment.
Who else was there??
Okay fine I changed my mind I’m going to send in a video to the Blue Stars
My girlfriend is trying out for the Bluecoats this weekend! I’m so proud of her :)
