Today the DCI Season Pass opens for subscribers to devour 396 drum corps shows, spanning 33 years. This streaming audio is available 24/7, or it's available to download if you want to own it. How delicious is the DCI Season Pass? Patty Orben of Lowell, Mass., who marched in the Division III Buccaneers from 1989-1993, the Division II Spartans in 1994 and the Boston Crusaders from 1995-1997, listened to the 1989 Santa Clara Vanguard as part of the beta test last month and was physically moved. "I just got goose bumps listening to 1989 SCV. That was my first year -- it holds a sweet spot in my heart. I was 13 and in Division III that summer. They were gods," Orben said. Other former marchers have been wowed by other elements of the DCI Season Pass. "I marched in the '70s and haven't been to a corps show since 1996," said Kim "Sprite" Algaier, 44, who marched in the Florida Vanguard in 1979. "DCI's revolutionary and impeccably produced Season Pass has compelled me to buy a ticket to this summer's Orlando show! I've never downloaded music from any site, but the Season Pass is going to fill my MP3 player. Whether it's the Madison Scouts' 1975 first-place finish, or Star of Indiana's memorable debut in 1985, the music on Season Pass is download-worthy! Thanks for bringing me back to my roots!" Algaier said. For DCI senior Web developer Ricky Fritzsching, the DCI Season Pass unveiling today is the capstone of a season of hard work. Fritzsching has been doggedly creating the DCI Season Pass since November 2004, and his labor is in the spotlight. "Many thanks to the DCI Season Pass development team and the DCI office. Through their support and hard work this day wouldn't have come as early as it did," Fritzsching said. We hope the DCI Season Pass is the online answer to all your drum corps needs.
