But in this case, the miracle was a result of a group of people absolutely refusing to give up.
A close friend of mine marched in this drumline, and so I was able to gain a different perspective than most people who will read this story. I know that this was probably the most significant summer of his life. This is a wonderful story, and you don't have to be a drum corps member (or fan, for that matter) to enjoy it. This is not a story about drum corps, it's a story of how to live a dream.
This is a well-written story by a talented writer. Lee Rudnicki has a unique perspective on life and the entertainment industry, and knows how to tell a story. I can't wait to read his next work.

Awesome read and "look into" an era of a corps that is sometimes described as the "Dark Years." I never bought into that description and was happy to read about one of my favorite SCV shows. Granted, the corps didn't win many (any?) awards, but the drum line (obviously the focus of the story) that year turned out awesome and had that unmistakable Vanguard vibe. Reading about the journey is a must if you're anything more than a casual fan of DCI.

My only complaint (not the right word, really) is that it would've been nice to have some more dialogue, which I understand may have been hard to faithfully reconstruct given that the events took place as early as Fall 1992. Also, some insight into the design process for the drum music would've been interesting. Basically, more stuff to let us know that the members "made it", regardless of what the judges thought.

Bottom line, this is well-worth the money and is a great read. It has been well-edited so there's never that let-down of seeing missed punctuation, improper grammar, or misspelled words.

As someone who was participating in Drum & Bugle Corps in the early 1990s, I've always been curious what went on behind the scenes with 1993's Santa Clara Vanguard. As such, this proved a really interesting read.
