About the Movie
In one unforgettable summer, three young men commit themselves to one of the most demanding youth activities in the country -- World Class drum and bugle corps: A veteran drumline member steps into a leadership role for the first time; a 15-year-old trumpet player from Texas becomes the youngest member of the entire corps; and a color guard member fights to finish his final season after receiving a life-changing diagnosis. Often referred to as “marching band on steroids,” drum and bugle corps pushes young people to extreme levels, both physically and mentally -- all for one 11-minute performance. All three young men march with the Madison Scouts from Madison, Wisconsin. The strong brotherhood of this all-male organization helps them through their struggles and celebrates their triumphs.
A great balance of story, soundtrack and video. It’s accessible and appropriate for any kind of audience. I enjoyed the overall story of the group, as well as following a few individuals that had weaving story lines of their own. It’s an honorable look into a a great drum corps.
Best documentary I've ever seen
As a former member of the Madison Scouts, I think this film is a beautiful representation of life in a drum and bugle corps. This brotherhood is so incredibly strong and I'm glad the world can finally see what life is like as a performer in a world class drum corps.
This is an incredible documentary. If you know anything about marching band or drum and bugle corps you need to watch this video! Fantastic stuff here!
