This is 1981 Crossmen's 1st sop line during our opener Explosion. One day my husband was goofing off while on tour and one of the brass instructor saw it and put it in the show.
Cadets copied the idea a few years ago. Funny how just playing around will promote ideas.
My hubby is the first one on the left;

The Bridgemen faint at the end of their 76 DCI final show was the result of a joke the members played on the instructers at the end of practice earlier in the year. It was one of thoughs hot 14 hour practices and when bobby hoffman said one last time (for the 12th time) we had all agreed to faint at the end. We never heard anything of it until a day before DCI when Bobby said to put it in at the end of the show.

Hey, we did that, too! 1988 show, right up front, tasty little set of jazz licks there in the middle of the opener (Cherokee).

Gimmickry. What fun. :D

I remember that sop lick from 1981. We thought that was so cool.

That '81 Crossmen show was HOT!!!

The greatest typographical blooper on any DCI merchandise was on the '81 DCI albums, which said the Crossmen played the song, "Bustline", instead of what should have been "Bustling".

:shock:


In 1970 we played a Brazilian tune called Laia la Daia (Lie-uh luh Die-uh is how it should be pronounced). One announcer called it "Lay a lady".

:D

Thanks Brian!
As far as Jazz songs from Crossmen's past, I really like our production number in 1980....Jack Miraculous. Really great sop feature in that one too....and I still remember the guard work to it! :)
