Live on Your Mobile Device: MBI Winter Guard

By | Drum & Bugle Corps | No Comments

We get the irony.  We really want you to tune into your smart phones today to watch our incredible show lamenting how our online society can reduce human interaction.  MBI Winter Guard’s 2016 production, Auto-Correcting Society takes the floor at the WGI St. Louis Regional this afternoon and will be on your phone live!

icon175x175Here’s how it works.  We’ll be using Periscope this afternoon and evening to broadcast the MBI Winter Guard’s performance.  Periscope is a Twitter product, so you’ll need to make sure you’re following us there (if you haven’t already).   Next, download the free Periscope app if you don’t already have it on your phone.  Once you sign in via Twitter, it will automatically let you know when we’re streaming live from St. Louis!  The Winter Guard’s prelims performance is scheduled for 3:106p.m. CST.  Finals competitions for Independent A Class begin at 8:44.  As an added bonus, Periscope videos stick around for 24 hours post-performance, so you can watch again, and again.

Then put your phone away and connect with someone IRL.

Set off your Easter togs

By | Drum & Bugle Corps | No Comments

You got your Easter bonnet, dress and new shoes all lined up – right? Complete that holiday ensemble with a new minaudière (that’s a clutch for you non-francophones) that you’ll win Tuesday, March 1, at Joe Senser’s Restaurant and Sports Theater (2350 Cleveland Ave. N., Roseville) for another edition of Coach Purse Bingo. It’s bingo … it’s fashionable … and it’s a lot of fun.

The action starts at 6:30 p.m. Cards cost $20 for the first set of six cards and $4 for an additional set of three cards. You’ll play
10 different bingo games and have a shot at winning one of a variety of Coach designer purses as prizes. The more people who play, the bigger and more expensive the prizes! (You must be 18 or older to play.)

So grab a pal and come out and join Minnesota Brass for an evening of exciting bingo. The restaurant and bar are open, as is the pull tab window, and there’s plenty of video entertainment to keep you entertained between games. And all proceeds benefit Minnesota Brass. Hope to see you there on Tuesday!

It Doesn’t Get Any Easier! Support the MBI Winter Guard on Thursday

By | MBI Winterguard | No Comments

It’ll be here before you know it.  It’s almost the third Thursday of February which means it’s your chance to support the MBI Winter Guard with about as much effort as it takes to order dinner.

This Thursday, February 18, visit the Crystal location of Buffalo Wild Wings and tell them you’re with “Team E” or “MBI Winter Guard” and 10% of your bill will go to MBI Winter Guard. It’s that easy!  Lunch?  Dinner?  Night out to watch the Wild game?  Whatever your excuse and no matter what you order, you can help.  Spread the word and join us this Thursday.

Minnesota Brass At A Glance

By | Drum & Bugle Corps | No Comments

Sometimes we get so excited about all the great things going on in the world of Minnesota Brass, we forget that new people are visiting and learning about us every day!  To help introduce new fans, potential new members and the generally curious about what it is the drum corps does, we’ve created a new Quick Guide with great information about who we are and what we do.  Feel free to share with others and spread the word.

The drum corps’ next rehearsal is Wednesday, February 17 at 6:30 p.m. for percussion and brass.  We rehearse at Brooklyn Center High School.  Color Guard auditions are scheduled to begin in April, after the WGI World Championships!
