For me

1976- this is the show of shows. Chuck Mangione and the jazz staple Channel One Suite.  Great brass, marching timps, good visuals considering the time. Just a great, fun show all around and by far my favorite BD show. Besides it's the show that started the dynasty.

2017-  Metamorph-I love the way they entered the field and thoroughly enjoyed the jazz ballad and trumpet feature. I feel like this is a new direction for them and I really like it.

2009- 1930. In 2009 the blue devils knew they had it and it wasn't even close. Their confidence as they performed at finals was radiant and they put on a high energy really fun show without going over the top.

1999- okay. I just really enjoyed the variety of percussion. This show is just really unique and different and fun to listen to.

I want to put a show from the 80s in here but I haven't decided which one yet.

Least favorites:


2004- summer train blues mix. I love summer. I love blues. I really enjoy Ghost Train and Take the A Train. I cannot handle this show. Nope. Not for me.

2012 Cabaret Voltaire- I think this show does an excellent job demonstrating it's intended purpose but that doesn't mean I have to like it. 

1996 Club Blue: A Gangster Chronicle.  Too over the top.

1. 1993

2. 2003

3. 1992

4. 2005 (This show gets an unfair rep. Yes, the narration was cheesy, but imo the real headscratcher was designing the show to be backwards. All of that aside, the music selection was fantastic, and I prefer it to most other shows I've seen)

5. 1995

I'm getting way too many 500 server errors lately. I can't post my list.

'88 and '85 come to mind though.
