Encore, Ep. 1: "Hey Bloo"
Introducing Encore, a two-part series following two of the best drum and bugle corps in the world: the Bluecoats and the Blue Devils. The two set the standard of excellence in 2019 and we followed each section through the final days of their incredible season. Catch the premiere of Encore: "Hey Bloo" on Monday, September 2 at 7 PM CT. The second episode, Encore: "19in19" will be released LIVE on Friday, September 13 during a special edition of the FloMarching Block Party starting at 7 PM CT.
In episode one of Encore, we spend time with the Bluecoats guard, brass, and percussion sections to see their process of warming up and preparing to perform on the activity's biggest stage—Lucas Oil Stadium during the DCI World Championships. The corps held the top spot for a majority of the 2019 season and took over the community by storm with their show inspired by The Beatles. "The Bluecoats" was a hit from day one of the 2019 season and culminated in one of the most incredible crowd responses to ever be seen at DCI finals—a chorus of thousands of people singing "Hey Jude" as they walk off the field for the final time.
During episode two, you will get an intimate look behind the curtain of "Ghostlight" with the 2019 DCI World Champion Blue Devils. The Blue Devils are an organization whose foundation is based in excellence and pushing to perfection at the most opportune time of the season—finals day. Follow along with the winningest corps in DCI as they go from prelims, to semis, to finals and earn their 19th DCI World Championship... in 2019.
