Pick Any Show Throughout All Time and Eternity That You Wish You Saw Live


Recommended Posts

If I had to pick just one, I'd have to go with Madison Scouts 1988. 

Also, I didn't to any live shows in 2014 (I watched a ton of webcasts), and I kick myself every day for it. A lot of great shows that year.

I wish I could have been at 1989 finals live.  I love that year so much, and it got me into DCI. Can't limit to one, Phantom and SCV 1989!

The best version of "Fanfare For The New" was the 1979 Guardsmen. GREAT hornline with charts from Tim Salzmen and great drum charts by Jim Campbell. https://video.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search;_ylt

1971 Argonne Rebels.

Gail Royer always said his favorite show was the 1968 Chicago Royalaires.  I could never find either audio or video of that show.

I'd like to see live any show that impressed that arranging wizard from SCV.

 

Gar, are you sure it was the 68 show?  I thought it was the 65 show GR liked best.

No, not completely sure.  It was from his DCI interview back, I think, in 1989 or '90.  

If you're thinking of the same interview, you most definitely could be right.

It was '65. The VFW Nationals was to have been held at Soldier Field in Chicago, but rain had made the field a swamp so the show was moved indoors to Mc Cormick Place, a spacious barn-like building with enough floor space to do a full drill.

There were 15 finalists and they all rocked the house. The Royal Airs were the only corps without contra basses, but Truman Crawford's arranging skill made that irrelevant.

Incidentally, the audio is available from Fleetwood and belongs in any serious collection.

The Royal Airs were great in '68, too, but I'm pretty certain it was the '65 corps GR referred to. 1968 belonged to the Kilties. They ran the table.

 Wrong year.

 He said " 1965 Chicago Royal Airs ".

Cadets 2000. I've only ever seen it on video, and that show really screams at me that the staging was incredibly important.

 

Honorable mention:

  • Phantom 89
  • Blue Devils 99
  • SCV 99
  • Cavies 00
