Yet another emotional performance from DB. Truly something special to witness live. Cold caused slight attack and intonation issues, but in Lucas Oil that will be special. Definitely lots of room to clean and make a push for finals
Love the similarities to Avon 2019 in the closer & their flawless guard.
With that being said; the theme is so cool I just wish it had a little more punch. There is very little GE in the show imo, and I sorta understand why they lost visual in prelims. From the multi-cam, you can see every missed set change, guard mistake and wrong horn angle. My best guess is that their Ind. Vis. and MGE scores are what will put them in second (or even third) tonight.
All in all a great show but I don’t see them making finals at GN this year. Maybe in the 16-20 range
Beautiful choir intro. Lovely body movement by the band. Music a bit messy in the first movement.
Definitely getting a Broken Arrow vibe.
I bet the end of that first movement is fantastic live in the stadium.
Ballad is pure Copland. And gorgeous swing flags.
Love the spinning pinwheel drill in the 3rd movement. Music still a bit messy but it will be great when they clean it up.
I think the problem is it’s all just too slow for my personal taste but it’s a good show. Just not convinced about it being GN finals worthy. They very well may convince me otherwise next month.
I totally think it’s finals worthy, seems to be such a GE Monster. I agree it is on the slower end. I am not surprised they lost the Visual caption, that being said, I think they early October things just get shoved on the field for fixing later. Excited to see a more polished version of that show in November.
I think tonight will be a wake up call for DB...don't really see this making finals at all, but I know they have the ability to make it super clean. Very interested to see how it all plays out come Grand Nats.

Mill Creek is more my speed. They definitely grab your attention right away! The music is fast and furious at times but they’re handling it pretty well. They lose me a bit in the ballad but it’s ok because the guard gave me a great place to focus. The huge flower formation was nice too. Nice impact at the end as well. Good job Mill Creek!!

Harrison has a very nice ensemble sound. I feel like the GE is really lacking in this show, and something else I noticed is that their flags are always in the back of the field... like they aren't being utilized fully to maximize visual GE
