Top Secret Tuba Corps

Postby Mark » Sat Dec 09, 2017 10:23 pm

If you don't know about the Edinburgh Military Tattoo or the Top Secret Drum Corps, you don't know everything you should.

I'm thinking we should form a Top Secret Tuba Corps. Anyone interested?

Maybe it exists but you just don't have the clearance.

Wow. That is quite impressive.

But notice that they're all playing the same model of drum, with the same electronic lighting effects. If we did something like this, we'd have to all play the same model Alexander...... :twisted:

This one's pretty good too:

I think an undisciplined tuba/sousaphone flash mob would be more our style.

I assume everyone else will buy a tuba to match mine.

Top Secret Tuba Corps? It has been tried before, according to my access to little known archives from 32 BC Rome. A retired military brass player (IV Legion), Marcus Sextus Flagellus, organized an elite and secret group of players (male and female) to perform only at secret meetings of powerful politicians in the infamous Corruptus party. The band folded when honest and honorable Senators outside the party discovered rampant sex abuse of female musicians by Corruptus big wigs. Sigh.

Some things just never seem to change.
