All time shows: Corps that are no longer with us

Recommended Posts

2017 is winding down and an all time show list wouldn't be complete if we don't honor great shows of the past from corps that are no longer with us. Besides I don't want to curse anyone with the week 13 title. You can use any show from any corps not current. Some examples include Star of Indiana, the Glassmen, the Bridgemen...etc it i s up to you. 

What are your top 1-10 all time shows?

(Optional) What are your 1-5 least favorites from them?

You can go into as much or little detail as you like but please please try to keep things positive.

For a quick recap in case you missed it and/or want to add your contributions:

Week 1- Cavies- 2006 the Machine is the favorite and 2012 15 min of fame is the least favorite.

Week 2- Jersey Surf- 2012 Bridgemania favorite

Week 3- Blue Knights-1994 Trittico for bras band favorite. least  2001Blue Toons

Week 4- Spirit of Atlanta- 1980 favorite

Week 5- Carolina Crown- Favorite: 2015 Inferno; Least Favorite: 2017 ...It is

Week 6- The Mandarins- 2017 inside the ink for favorite.

Week 7- Boston Crusaders- 2000 RED is the favorite.

Week 8- Pioneer- 1996 Celtic Twilight is the favorite.

Week 9- Santa Clara Vanguard- 1999 Inventions for a New Millennium favorite. 1995 Not the Nutcracker least favorite.

Week 10- Oregon Crusaders 2014 Nevermore is the favorite

Week 11- The Crossmen- 1992 Songs for the Planet Earth is the favorite.

Week 12- The Cadets- 2011 Between Angels and Demons is the favorite. 2006 The Zone Part II least favorite.

Honorable mention to 1980, which probably should have won the title. But '81 has Niner Two.

I agree and was considering doing that but I didn't want to leave any out and inevitably I probably would... I was originally going to work 6 into the rotation that I have going but it would be to hard to pick 6 or to pick 5 then lump the rest into one thread.

That's why I increased the lists to 10 and 5.
