What are your Top 10 Drumline/Percussion Moments from all time. Not necessarily always the best, but the most entertaining and fun.

In no certain order:

Madison 1975 "Dueling Banjos"
Cadets 1995 "Swing, Swing, Swing" (Drum sets, and the multiple bass drums and people jumping around and playing)
Crossmen 1992 feature, those guys were just throwing down, and you could tell they were having fun doing it
Cadets 2000 tenor feature, all you can really say is WOW!
Blue Devils 2009 feature, just hard, fast, and crazy, and very fun to watch
Crossmen 1996 beginning of the show, lots of basses and toms
SCV 1978 (I believe) Lezghinka, mallet players were amazing
Velvet Knights 1990 "Slow Burn"
Madison 1997 feature/fight scene with movable rack and sword fight on top
Blue Devils 2003 drum solos at the beginning of the show

Honorable Mention
Les Etoiles 1997- Upside down spinning drummers
Kiwanis Kavaliers 1996 trash can drums in West Side Story
Cavaliers 2004 "007" latin groove feature
Bluecoats 2008 feature that starts with the bass drums sounding like a speed bag
Madison 1996 eight tenor players

Can't believe that slipped my mind. Truly I could make the list Top 100 moments, and we still would leave something out.

Also, the fun feature that Blue Knights had in 1993. "Little Green Men" (I believe that was the title)
