Anonymous asked, "What are some popular dca bands?"
It’s not so much about popularity, but the top 3 DCA corps this past season were the Reading Buccaneers, the Hawthorne Caballeros, and Minnesota Brass.
However, the entire DCA circuit is great. While the corps are largely based in the Northeast, there are great groups in other spots around the country too. Sunrisers, Sun Devils, Gold, Atlanta CV. Here in NJ/PA alone we have Cabs, Bucs, Cadets2, Windsor Regiment, and Bushwackers—and of course, my favorite, Fusion. All of these corps are wonderful and are comprised of excellent groups of people. It’s not about who’s popular, it’s about who’ll give you the best experience you can get. And it’s a personal choice!
Can you read music, or do you have an at least basic ability to play set? Awesome. Rad. Sweet. United Percussion needs YOU. Yes, YOU. We’re looking to fill a synth spot, and looking to fill a drumset spot. We seriously need people. If you can fill the spot and live within and winter-band tolerable…
Anonymous asked, "It's me, your Secret Santa!! I auditioned at Academy and got a contract and also have a strong chance for a leadership position! How will you be spending your Christmas?"
That is so awesome! I wish you guys were coming out my way on tour. But still. So cool! and the leadership position thing is even better. Congrats!
On Christmas I usually just have dinner at my house with my immediate family and my grandma. I don’t have a lot of family. On Christmas Eve I think I’m going to try to find a church to go to because I want to sing Christmas music. Nothing too exciting.
United Percussion is in needs of some people to fill spots. Particularly, a synth player, a drum set player, a snare player, and a cymbal player. If anyone lives in the NJ/PA/NY/DE/MD area and is interested, or knows anyone interested, message me!
But seriously. COME MARCH AND DO THINGS
if i could play any of these things i would do this. BUT IF YOU CAN, YOU SHOULD!
