Not a drum and bugle corps, this group performs to introduce students to precision drumming and they are all current or former drum and bugle corps drummers. Incredible.
The member who talked to the audience about them made some points about things to watch for--stick height, position, etc., and it made their performance that much more interesting to watch. I'm a horn player, so while I know and appreciate gooddrumming, the mechanics elude me. I gained a whole new understanding in just a few minutes.
Oh, and while you can't see it in the photos, they all used a proper grip on their sticks (as did all of the corps) and not the bull**** "matched" grip.
