Show: Caravan

  • Caravan
  • Incantation (from Cirque du Soliel)
  • Ombra (from Cirque du Soliel)
  • Hajj

The Good: It's amazing how far Bluecoats percussion has come in just the past two years. They're now one of top drumlines in DCI and for good reason. Add the always spectacular hornline sound and it's no surprise that Bluecoats are a Top 5 corps for the first time ever. I have a hard time picturing this corps as the same group I would compete with during the 90's. It's amazing how good the hornline sounds from top to bottom, so mature with such a full and dark sound. The contra line is just phenomenal, especially during a fast-paced walking bass line during Hajj.

The Bad: The Tabla chanting, while I understand how it fits into the show concept, is a little annoying, especially since the drumming isn't necessarily Tabla in nature.

The Ugly: You know the corps is good when you can't say anything ugly about your in-state rivals.

Overview: This is another show where it's hard to review the entire show because I'm lost in the performance. There's just so much that's amazing about this performance.
