Spartans vs East Coast Jazz

Got a chance to see DCI East Divisions II powerhouses Spartans and East Coast Jazz in Springfield MA Saturday evening July 8.
Both corps are back and better them ever.
Spartans went on first and their show was moving and never let up till the end.
I like the musicical selections better than I have in years and the musical dynamics were great, moving from soft to middle to loud. As usual the colorguard was superb. This corp may be better than they ever have been and perform a division 1 like show as well as looking great on the field.
After the Spartans stirring performance East Coast Jazz took the field and did not disappoint. Their horn line is great and delivered a show that was full of energy and featured jazzy solos that fits their name. The drum line is stronger than last year and the drum show is excellently written. Though the visual execution was not as sharp as Spartans the music performance was more challenging and slightly better performed. Both these corps will be there in Madison when all is said and done.
