Hey check out http://vicfirth.com/ for the George Mason Drumline podcast!
Though I'm no longer a member (was bass 5), they're still my school and I'd love to promote them as much as possible. If you're in the area, look out for them at local AIA competitions, and if not, check em out in Dayton for WGI Championships.

I think that's awesome that GMU has a line now. Hopefully I'll get a chance to see them this year, I'll be with Yorktown H.S.

Is that tall tenor player the one from Chantilly?

Another local guy checking in...

I went to GMU. Back then, we had no drumline. This was between 1995 and 1998.

Yeah, that guy's the man... I wish I were that tall.

Yeah this is our first year competing, last year was just a pep band kind of deal. For a first year line, I have never seen or been a part of a drumline with this much talent. From the instructors, the drum techs, right down to the battery and pit, there is so much talent. The drill, from what i've seen is nasty and the book is ridiculous. There is no shortage of chops going around, that's for sure.
This year's show is called "Buzz". But that's pretty much all I can tell you, you'll just have to check em out live. :D

timdrums08
03-30-2009, 08:16 PM
oh it was at dayton in 04, i don't know if it was finals or what but thats where i got it.
congrats on 3rd? was it? you guys beat my high school south county :(

davidrums
03-31-2009, 03:46 PM
thanks man. yeah we got 3rd.

the way the gym was we were able to see south countys show since we went right after them, and i got REALLY nervous after seeing them play.

but when they announced 4th and heard it was sc, i got chills. we got 8th in psa last year btw...

this was the first comp i went to and didnt see masons show, i guessing it killed like always? good luck in dayton!

timdrums08
03-31-2009, 04:40 PM
thanks for the kind words, I teched for a few of their practices so i knew what they could do. I knew they weren't going to win though, they were given the short stick, they were missing 11 people for prelims because of a band trip and for finals, hardly any of them were really in the mind set.

davidrums
04-16-2009, 03:49 PM
YEAH MASON!!!

Good Luck at prelims tomorrow!!
