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

Recommended Posts

I've been lucky enough to personally witness some of the legendary live performances in the history of the DCI era from the mid 70s to now, but the one I'd give anything to have seen live, based on the recording, is '74 Muchachos at Finals.

Cavaliers - 1969 in the Houston Astrodome, with Jesus Christ Superstar.  When the guard portrayed the three people dying on the cross, the entire Dome went silent.

My vote is for Madison Scouts 1975...Hello Screamers! Heaven for me and bliss...

I came across 75 Madison on PBS while switching channels and was captivated by their performance as well as Santa Clara who followed.  It was one of my first exposures to DCI.  The first was seeing SCV and the Blue Devils live in 1975 at Pacific Procession.

I'll go you one better. I've said before that 1995 Cavaliers might well be the best realization of a classical piece ever performed on a football field.

I, too, wish I could have seen it live.

Amen to that.... it is incredible

This is beyond a great call! Jim Ott arrangements before he became THE Jim Ott!!!!! Someone should create a library of Hall of Fame designers formative years. Either as performers or rookie designers. Let us see and learn the lineage of what we do.

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.

I marched Cavaliers 1995 and this may sound odd but if there's any show I would like to see from the stands it would be that one. I remember our horn sergeant getting injured on a free day mid season. He got to watch us perform a few times and I was so jealous lol.

THIS is an excellent choice.  I was there, and the ENTIRE night was a slow, intense increase in crowd excitement.  My dad brought his trusty Panasonic tape player/recorder and recorded the entire show live from the stands.  The tapes still play and sound decent for their age and I 100% agree with you about the Muchachos show - even 40+ years later, those tapes trigger a memory response of seeing it live.
