My husband marched in a corp years ago but due to several illnesses we've not been able to attend any of the live stadium events! We sat and thoroughly enjoyed the DCI Big, Loud & Live event and AMC's Showplace 16!!! If I can make only one suggestion, it would have been good to have auditorium lights up during intermission and when the program was over. It made it very difficult to see while leaving! Great night! Thank you! Looking forward to next year!

Hard to believe it's live

I've seen the vhs', dvd's, and other videos of past DCI performances, but it was awesome seeing it live in theaters! Doesn't compare to live in person, but it was very well done. I'd go again.

Cool! Wish I could have stayed to see the whole thing, but had to get up for work today. Awesome :) Can't wait for next year! Definitely take the kids and get them exposed to the major league of music!

Great show & wish this tech was around while I was still marching. Needed to ask to have volume increased-something several people do every year. All theaters should be ready to accommodate those requests. Adds the LOUD to Big, Loud, & Live! & puts the corps in your face.

Enjoyed it but room for improvement

Love drum corps! If this is the only way to see it, then I won't complain. But with technology being what it is, I feel like the picture quality could be better. Resolution is terrible on distance shots; people are just little blobs of color with no definition. Sports events have much clearer pictures than this; what kind of cameras do they use? DCI needs to get some for next year. The sound was a little piercing in the beginning but got better. Show should approximate the live experience. Love the commentators. Overall I had fun.
