A couple of us got to hang with Anna at the DCI Lakeland show. Turns out she's a Lot Riot fan. I loved having the opportunity to thank her for her committed performance, and true embodiment of maximizing your role in any given production. While I've never been the biggest fan of over-done pit emoting, Anna strikes the rare note of being genuinely excited without any false pretense. And when someone brings that much awareness to our activity, there's nothing I can say but "Thanks."
Matt has performed and instructed at nearly every level in the marching percussion universe. Based in Orlando, FL, he is the Founder and Owner of Lot Riot.
You may have seen the video of the hyper-passionate keyboard player in the Boston Crusaders front ensemble this summer. She ended up on TMZ, People, front page of Reddit, and a million other websites.
