speaking of "blasts" what corps in the mid eighties had their guard play sops during their opener and add to their big wall of sound for the closer? The horns were laid out on the side lines.. probably about twenty horns in all. This was certainly a blast for the fans to appreciate.

I can't remember it in the eighties, but '77 Garfield did it during their closer.

That would be the 1984 Freelancers.

GREAT sound!!

And the vocal chorale they did that season on With You I'm Born Again was pretty impressive too!

82 thru 84 were probably our best years, for the brass alone.

I seem to remember Bluecoats doing something like that around 1984.
