Some drumline audio clips for DCI 2009

Tonight is the semifinals show for the Drum Corps International 2009 World Championships. I love this time of year, the height of summer and the height of musical competition. I can't get enough of the music, especially the drumlines (I marched in the Santa Clara Vanguard in 1985, part of the drumline, so I'm biased).

So for your listening and watching pleasure, here are a few clips of drumline coolness for this year.

By the way, do you have any favorite drum line audio or video clips? If so, comment on this blog post and share the links. I'm always looking for new, cool stuff to listen to.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
