Show: A Midsummer Knight's Dream
The Good: Another great sounding hornline for the Blue Knights. It seems to me that all the hornlines using King horns have improved greatly since making the switch. The drumline, which has been a staple of the Blue Knights ever since they broke into Finals back in 1991, are once again at the top of their game.
The Bad: Nothing really happens during this show. I feel like they're trying to recreate 2004 and it doesn't work. The opener sounds like they're trying to copy Trittico, while the next piece sounds like they're trying to copy the feel of last year's drum feature. I never feel like I'm going to get a powerful moment during this show.
The Ugly: This show is just so...vanilla.
Overview: This show really didn't do anything for me. The corps performs it well, but I felt like I sat through the show waiting for something to happen that never occured.
2006 Auditions: November 19-20
