The loudest thing that I EVER heard was Spirit, at the Memphis show, the day after (I think it was the day after) Jim Ott got killed, doing a standstill. I credit most of my hearling loss to that one single event.

OK, Heard all of the aformentioned live many times and I would have to say Spirit in the late 70's, early 80's followed by '75 Madison. Early 70's Anaheim and the Muchachos would be right there as well. Schaumberg in the late 70's early 80's also had one year where the corps could make the earth move. Remember, the question dealt with quantity, not quality!

Schaumberg 79. Saw them blow SCV clean off the field one time. It would be hard to imaging the 79 Guardsmen with a 68 man hornline. They were really really intense. I had a bootleg of a late July show of them. The finals recording was really pretty lame. Did not reflect what they really sounded like. I'm guessing they had to move the microphones back a hudred yards when they came on or something.

Muchachos were VERY loud at times, I can remember seeing them in 76 when they were on the down side and still being very,very loud. I can remember just plain out ripping your face off at times, they were big and loud.

I don't remember how they measured it, but I believe it was determined that the loudest hornline to date is Star of Indiana 93, and I can believe it. Not just loud, but incredibly talented; I heard a story about a couple guys from an orchestra that had recently played something from Medea watched them play that at finals, and were astounded, making a comment like "It's hard enough to play sitting down; I can't believe they play that moving."


I was there in Jackson for finals, sitting right in front, and that show brought tears to people's eyes. The last couple minutes were INCREDIBLE!!! I know it was a little too complex for some people, but that is one of my all time top 5 shows...along with 87 scv, 84 garfield, 90 star (LOUD and controlled), & 94 bd (very LOUD).

Was it in 80 that Spirit *literally* blew out a press box window?

Oh, if you haven't lately, check out Spirit '86. Holy sheet!

That 80 Spirit press box story is just an urban legend.

Loudest hornline I ever heard live as Star 93. Texarkana show and finals.

the first couple that come to mind are Star '93 and BD '94. Especially BD, I heard them several times that year in victory concerts and it just blew my mind away....and some of my hair too.

Question for Cavies '95, I have been wracking my brain trying to remember the ballad Cavies played with the guard member climbing the pole, is that '94?? I don't remember that moment blowing me away when I saw them live but it sounds LOUD LOUD on the cd. Anyone remember that at finals being a particularly incredibly loud moment??

The guard guy climbed the pole in both 94 and 95 (it's the same guy). In 94 it was during "Ivan the Terrible" and in 95 it was during "Jupiter".

Ivan the Terrible is the moment I was thinking about. I haven't seen The Planets show since I saw it live in Dayton, Ohio so I didn't recall the pole climb that year.

At any rate, C95 do you have any particular memory of that chord in the 94 show that might set it apart from anything else? I swear that is the loudest moment on those cds.

You did not get out in your younger years, did you?
