Here are a few photos prior to Drum Corps Europe (official) Prelims taken by our friend Maarten Van Het Hof and captures our pre show ritual

We have always finished every show we have performed with a vocal CO after the last beat

When we do our pre show chat outside the stadium which needs to be quiet out of respect to the performing group already on our Drum Major will always say (I’ll give you “Let’s go” you give me the “CO” keep it low) and we whisper a vocal CO

Last year we added an extra hype which is inspired by the great The Cavaliers Drum and Bugle Corps and their “Splooie” shout, the Bluecoats “Let’s go........BLOOOO” and Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps iconic “Do it up Devils”

So at the end zone whilst the CO Frontline are setting up their equipment on the front sideline our Drum Major will give the rest of the cast final instructions and then at the top of his lungs will shout “LET’S GO” and the whole cast respond “C O”

It’s a great way for the cast to engage the audience and for them to get some adrenaline through their bodies prior to the performance

These photos are great and capture the moment brilliantly
