INDIANAPOLIS - Lucas Oil Stadium will be filled this weekend with the best of the best in marching band music.
At the Colts complex on Friday, the Blue Devils were practicing for their shot at taking home the title from the Drum Corps International.
Band members have been practicing 12 hours a day all summer long to prepare for the event.
"We like our chances right now," said Blue Devils staff member Ben Maughmer. "They work hard every day. The project's not over until the last note is played on the last night, and they'll keep working that way. All of the kids are super, and I'm really proud of their efforts."
The top 25 bands were set to compete Friday beginning at 2 p.m. in the semi-finals. On Saturday, the bands that move on will compete for the top spot.
While they think they've got what it takes to go all the way, the California Blue Devils also aren't forgetting to enjoy the experience.
"I love performing, so on a smart drum you can express emotions with your face," said percussionist Henry Gillard. "It's an absolute thrill to perform and drum with my friends."
Ticket prices for the event range from $25 to $75.
