Over the years, the Scouts have always had the ability to perform high energy shows. What are your favorite Madison Scout shows (top 3) of all time?

Mine are (not necessarily this order)

1. 1981
2. 1980
3. 1988

runner-up- 1995

I really liked the early 80s too. The music was great and Sal Salas had some great guards. And who could forget Dan Veerhusen as drum major in 1980.

1981 - My youngest brother's rookie year in Scouts as a rifle.
1988 - Clean as a whistle.
1995 - En fuego!

I remember my first time seeing Madison live....1978. That was another great show!!

Malaguena, God Bless the Child, Star Wars medley, and How deep is you Love. Great hornline!! I had the chance to see legendary Jimmy Elvord work the brass inside the gym. Great stuff!!!

I also really liked the 1979 opener. That was very exciting!!
