Well, it's actually happening. It's all kinds of crazy and stupid, but it's sure going to be fun!
For those of you who don't know me, I am Campbell Phillips - a young drummer from Melbourne Australia - and I am about to head off on tour with the Blue Devils International Corps. I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure I am the first Aussie (born and bred) who has marched BD.
Anyway, the point of this blog is to help everyone keep up with my escapades throughout the US and Europe, and hopefully give a bit of insight into what life on tour with BD is like. More importantly, I hope it can help inspire other young musicians to chase their dreams... The idea of me ever marching BD was just absurd... but somehow it is happening...
Over the next 7 weeks, I'll be chucking up heaps of videos of everything that goes down - rehearsals, gigs, sight-seeing and all the good stuff. It's going to be a pretty sweet ride, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
See you in New York!
