It was the hot topic of January's Drum Corps International annual business meetings and rules congress: A rules change proposal that would have put limits on the amplification of horn lines. While the rules change itself was voted down, the discussion it sparked will echo in stadiums for years to come. Dan Potter "amplifies" some of what was said by the activity's top directors, designers and instructors in this edition of DCI's Field Pass podcast.
Drum Major of the Geneseo Knights Drum and Bugle Corps from 1979-1981, Dan was also on the staff of the Glassmen and has taught or consulted high school marching bands in Indiana, Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma.
