Week 2 Update

2015-05-29T23:35:12-05:00May 29th, 2015|

Chers Phans, Dear Phans, this past week has been another spectacular one with the Phantom Regiment!  On Wednesday, we had the opportunity of going to the Perkins Stadium at the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater. It is always great to have a huge stadium to fill up with our performance energy, as opposed to a small scaffolding on a grass field.  The corps was able to spend nearly the entire day in ensemble rehearsal, and we got a lot of large, quality repetitions in, including about four full runs of everything we know. In the past two days, the Phantomettes [... Read More]

5/20/15 Chers Phans, Salut! I am thrilled to say that the 2015 season has begun for the Phantom Regiment!

Tuesday was the final boot camp day, and that evening we put on a little “show and tell” for the rest of the drum corps and the staff. The Phantomettes performed our dance [... Read More]

However you know the show, whether it be: The Rockford Show, Homecoming, Boylan, Show of Shows, The Home Show, it’s still our annual alumni homecoming!

Originally those performances included half-time shows for the Rockford Rams semi-pro football team mixed together with a few competitions run by Rockford’s 4th of July committee. The first Show of Shows operated by the Phantom Regiment was held there in 1976. The show has grown over the years to be more than just a drum corps competition. Year after year, it’s [...
