Big, Loud & Live Gets Better with Age

Since first going 5 years ago, each year they improve the sound and the picture. It was an enjoyable evening with only 1 small technical glitch. I recommend it to any drum corps fan!

All the bands were awesome! I laughed, I cried, and I was left wanting more. What more can I say. These kids are awesome. I know from my own experience how much hard work, time, and effort goes into these shows. Let me tell you it is worth every second of it. What a heck of a performance from all the participants. Well worth the price compared to what I would have spent on gas to drive to Indy to see it. Thank you DCI :-)

Show better than theater

DCI is always a must-see. It'd be nice if the theater we saw it at treated it that way. The south lobby concession stand was closed, the bathrooms were filthy, and for some reason the entrance to the screen room smelled like someone had barfed a few minutes earlier. Five stars for the show, but just one for the theater.

After sitting on bleachers, working food trucks and driving many many miles, this is the BEST way to watch drum corps. Plus you see the best of the best. The people in the theatre get into it just as much as if you were in the stands. Nice when you see a group from a high school attend. Love coming to this every year.

Big, Loud and Live 10

So glad you offer this each year. Thanks. It was great. The volume for the corps' performances was louder than necessary. It was fixed part way through, but the commentators were hard to hear/understand. Please run an announcement before the performance starts asking folks not to text, tweet, Facebook, etc... while the corps are performing. The lights from the cell phones are so distracting and make it harder to see the screens. Alternatively, reserve the last row for folks who can't put their cell phones down. :-) Tell the theaters that there will be an intermission, so that they know to turn the house lights on while folks are up getting food and the like.
