I went to see Blast last night in Orange, TX after waiting four years and IMHO it was well worth the wait. The whole group was phenomenal, but the lead trumpet soloist was unreal. His playing was super clean and great range too. I realize that some people don't think very much about drum corps ( I happen to love drum corps or any type of music program that teaches responsibilty and team work) but considering that 2/3's of the production have drum corps backgrounds, as does the production itself and are exposing the masses to some very beautiful, well played, and varied types of music can only help to raise awareness of the need for continued and increasing levels of organized music in our schools. I'll step off my soapbox now.
