I don't understand why they changed it from Dierks Bentley, but...

Just realized they used more of the 2012 songs during the practice High Show on Friday, and more new ones for the Low Show on Saturday...

When I was at the TICO show, I talked to Darrick Lee for a bit. I asked him about the music list and he said that they would try a few changes for the show, but last he heard they were just going to keep the 2012 list as far as the high show goes. He said the Ops officer handles that dept. Mr. Lee asked for my contact info and I gave it to him and he said that he would get with the Ops officer and get their music list to me...but to give him a few weeks. I thanked him for his support.

IF and when I get the list guys, I will forward it your way if you still need it. Cheers.

I was also there in Titusville. 8)

Sounds like the same story as what they've been doing for the past few seasons. They'll keep the majority of last season's tunes and change out a few at a time throughout the year (sometimes temporarily, sometimes permanently). The list from last year that's been posted here earlier is still mostly up to date (minus the noted new/temp ones from TICO), and because they're not flying anymore this year (as of right now at least), that list is still current for all intents and purposes.

Btw, there's no separate music list for the low- or flat- shows compared with a high show. The songs still follow a pattern. For example, since there's no TD Cloverloop that same song gets used for the Diamond BUP... there's no Line Break Loop, so that same song gets used for the Echelon PIR etc. Same songs, different sequence... not quite a separate list if that makes sense. :wink:

Agreed. As far as the low and flat shows, I had no idea as I haven't really begun to study up on those as much.

Due to family/work I was only able to get the low show in on Sat. Weather was lousy but was great because I've never had the chance to see it.

I did see them flying down the Indian River back to KCOF after the Friday prac show. Was an interesting formation. The diamond was in formation except 2 & 3 were spaced out each about 150ft. The 2 solos were about 1/3 mile behind line abreast with about 300ft between them. Just a loose formation cruise back to Patrick.

Appreciate the insight you guys gave me. That along with email chats I've had with Blaine helped Tex and I get the high show down in our heads. Flying it though...that's something else!

LD, wish I'd have known you were there! I'm still hoping for an end to the sequester before the Cocoa Beach gig.

Doesn't seem to be new since it was only played once. It was probably just an experiment. The song is "Let It Go" by Demi Lovato.

Yeah, I don't think any of us want to believe the Let It Go could actually be set for the rest of the season.
