The ballad of Yoko and Kumi

by Drum Corps International

Yoko Usui (LonVakeTK@comcast.net), who played timpani with the Blue Devils from 1998 through 2001, submitted this one. "This picture was taken in the lot at Drums Along the Rockies in Denver (07.12.2003). I'm the one on the right, and my friend on the left is Kumi. She came all the way from Osaka, Japan (with the hand-sewn Snoopy) for the weekend. We are both alumni of the Blue Devils -- I marched 1998 through 2001 in the pit, and Kumi marched mellophone in 2001 and 2002. We both missed being ON the field, but the show was absolutely awesome!" Thanks Yoko! View the Forzato archives E-mail your Forzato submissions -- and we will get to them all, in time -- to dave@dci.org along with where and when the photo was taken.
