Gettin’ My Nerd On

Hi, my name is Pam, and I am a former band nerd.  Okay, scratch that “former” part.  It’s still there.  I may not play anymore, but the love of music is still there.

On Wednesday, I found out that there was going to be a DCI competition at UTM the next day.  I immediately texted my band nerd sister to see if she wanted to go.  She did.

If you’re not familiar with them, the Drum Corps International is kinda like the Major League of marching band.  These musicians are simply amazing.

The lineup included the Crossmen, Spirit of Atlanta, Cavaliers, Carolina Crown, and Cadets, and the show absolutely did not disappoint.  It was hot and muggy, but I kept goosebumps almost all night. Music just does that to me…



Any other band nerds out there?  Ever been to a DCI performance?

  1. Our town hosts the largest Fourth of July parade in the state. This celebration has been going on for over a hundred years. The parade entries contest is a pretty big deal! I was lucky enough to happen upon a marching band (of adults, all ages!) practicing for the parade yesterday. They were awesome!! I cannot wait for the parade on Wednesday!
