The step-off of the 2015 Drum Corps International season is one day away. Thousands will watch the Tour Premiere live at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, but many more will get their first taste of drum corps this summer in one of more than 535 theaters nationwide at DCI's and Fathom Events' "Drum Corps at the Cinema" presentation.

To get us primed for what we'll see on the big screen Wednesday, Dan Potter visits with executive producer, director and brand new DCI Hall of Fame inductee, Tom Blair, in today's Field Pass presented by Zildjian.
