Was great to be able to see drum corps when you are unable to travel to them. Great!!!

Excellent Experience

The experience of getting to watch the top 15 drum corps in DCI live in the theater was fantastic as always. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was simply that the type of shows performed this season did not grab my attention the same way they have in the past. I was blown away by the majority of the top shows last year, but this seemed like a down year in terms of concepts of the shows themselves. That being said, those kids can play. Horns and drums were amazing and I'm not sure how the judges picked one to win. I highly recommend anyone interested in music of any kind attend Big, Loud, and Live 12 when it comes around next year and I hope this event never stops!

Since going to one of these events is extremely costly and difficult for me, this is a fantastic alternative. It was enjoyable in every way.

Excellent Show - Horrible Venue

As always, the DCI Semi-Finals are an incredible show. Fathom Events does an awesome job bringing us the show, however the Cinemark in Amarillo does a horrible job hosting the program. Like last year, they overbooked for the small theater they put us in, but this year we had an added bonus...No Air Conditioning on a day when the outside temps reached in the upper 90's. So no cool air and people standing to watch the performance. I wish Fathom Events would contract with another theater in the Amarillo, TX market.

Big, Loud, & Live 11

This was a fantastic event. Being in California it is hard to make it back east for DCI events and this is a great way for fans to see the best of the best with friends and fellow alumni of drum corps'. My only disappointment was that it was the Thursday preliminaries and not the Friday semifinals or the Saturday finals. DCI should make the finals available to everyone...but that is a complaint for the DCI cartel.
