A Very Special Marching Arts Holiday Season Spectacular

It's the time of the year where you pull out your 2012 DCI World Championship finals DVD and annoy your friends and family with that iconic Cadets show "12.25." 

The air is filled with holiday spices, the smell of a big turkey or ham or whatever your family may do, accompanied by a healthy helping of dessert, sponsored by your very own Couchmen Drum and Bugle Corps.

We wanted to take a moment to highlight some things on social media that brightened OUR holidays over the last week.

"Merry Couchmen"

Check out this beautiful rendition of "The Night Before Couchmas" from our one and only cozy confidant. 

This Is Not A Drill

Micro Marching League took a moment out of their day on Christmas Eve to send well wishes to all with "Happy Holidays" written using their free drill-writing software. 

Pulse Percussion's "Joy To The World"

Pulse's Zach Wilson from the snareline put together a little holiday diddy for all of us chomping at the bits for some new WGI content!

Fa-La-La-LoMarching

We obviously have to take this opportunity to wish happy holidays and Merry Christmas to all of the FloMarching fans out there. We all appreciate your support dearly and hope you enjoy what we've got in the works for 2019!

Best of wishes going into the New Year!

The Work Never Stops

Etude Winterguard, along with many other winter guards and percussion ensembles has to take advantage of the performers' time off from school during the holidays.
