Now that 2022 DCI season rehearsals are starting, I’m really getting back into the 2021 performances.
It’s been a while since Adam Tan posted a Let’s Watch episode featuring marching percussion, but this episode made it well worth the wait. Kudos to Lisa Huerta of the Madison Scouts and Brayton Gust of Phantom Regiment for their excellent xylophone cam videos.
Anther great reaction video by March Or Die. The Cavaliers had multiple standing ovations throughout their performance, and it is clear why from this video.

The crowd was cheering for Phantom on Saturday of DCI Celebration week from the moment they appeared in the tunnel through their entire performance. I’m so glad the corps released this video of that performance. SUTA!

We haven’t had a DCI reaction video from Courtney Colston in some time, so it’s nice to get one from somebody who has a background in the activity, plus it’s from this season!

To the 2020-2021 age outs of the Santa Clara Vanguard: Thank you.
Two things I love about this video: 1) The drum line swaying side to side during their corps song 2) The drum major MILKING the build.
