If you can't be a good example, be a horrible warning

If they were sat in a concert hall somewhere they would be a pretty damn good band, the fact that they are playing while doing a complicated choreography at the time is incredible.

There is a group called "Blast!" that developed from the drum & bugle corps activity, that played in concert halls, including many shows in London a decade ago....

True than! Most major drum corps march consistently at what would be 'fast walking to small jog' to the exercise enthusiast. They are true athletes in every respect. Of course in my marching days, we did so in full thick wool West Point uniforms!

We had it hard in our day didn`t we, kids these days don`t know they are born, do they? :lol:

Have to say that I prefer the effect that a full big band gives you but they are good.
