One of the best parts of the DCA experience is the Individual and Ensemble competition. This year, the Renegades won 27 medals and fielded one of the most controversial ensembles ever, the infamous Crunchy Frog. Made up of members from many of the corps competing at DCA, Crunchy Frog was a great time for all involved.

As the Giant Chicken bids us adieu, don't forget to check out the video, audio and slide shows! And buy a dvd or a T-shirt!

"If the Renegades can revitalize my 13 year old daughter's interest in music, and hook new fans to drum corps for life, that's all that matters. Hats off to a most excellent and entertaining show that puts the COOL back in drum corps. DCI should take heed and have every junior corps director watch a live performance of the Renegades."
- Rick Beckham

  There was much more to the Renegades' I&E than the Frog - our Cymbal ensemble and minicorps were crowned champions along with Contra soloist Rich Acheson and Cymbal soloist Anthony Aranda. In color guard, Todd and Veronica challenged us all with their provocative routine, and staffer Frank Dorittie was tops on the Tenor Horn!

The Renegades' Cymbal ensemble, E.V.I.L., makes a grand entrance.

"Wow. To put on two awesome shows (prelims and Minicorps) in one day is nothing short of amazing. Renegades Rule!!"
- David R.

ContraBuddy Tats is always ready with a beer and a smile.

Lisa Johnson models the latest in support hose. Lisa sprained her ankle, but was able to perform with the corps at Finals.

Read her touching, though somewhat bizarre, re-cap of the DCA weekend.

NEVER fall asleep at a Renegades party...


The crowd enjoys the minicorps' performance.

The paparazzi strike!

Chris Nalls (love the hair) is interviewed by the lovely and talented Lesa Barker.

Pennsylvania's finest were vigilant. Too vigilant!
