I accept that the activity needs to evolve but amplification is not the answer and electronics and
gosh forbid voice in a drum corps. show is against the religion that DCI has come to be.Look back at the great shows of the 80's and 90's ,the corps. were only 128 but without the cheating of a mixing board or the use of a mike of any kind, other than the ones recording for posterity the corps. blew the skin off your face and even though there wasn't all the visual fluff of today I believe that the shows were more PURE and not just a bunch of mixing and hocus pocus that belong on broadway
NOT on the drum corps. field.
