    Someone loses a Tenor Drumstick! Look at 1:36 between the union flag and the tree - whoops! Bloody brilliant though, I wish I was there, these guys are the very best - so smart. My favourite tune is Gibraltar 03:16

    Top Secret Drum Corps always lose a few sticks during their performances. They do have a pouch with replacements on board - I think it is expected!

    He might have had another mallet in a stich pouch on the side/back of his drum.

    Yep, very unfortunate, especially as it happened at the very beginning of the performance. However, he carried on with tenor-drum stick movements as though he had the two sticks with him. Well Done that guy. Professional. SuperNutkin.

    Wow, they have learned some new music. It must be as boring to consistently play it as it is to listen to continuously.

    This ridiculous! How do you get THIS good? When were this enormous number of musicians able to rehearse together? So, so proud of the discipline, dedication and self-belief that enabled the musicians to get out there and perform to this standard. In awe.

    Beating the Retreat is often wrongly) interpreted amongst civilians. It is not the surrender or the forward troops, it is the call for forward troops to return to the safety of the fort for the night.

  42. Casus Knacksus

    They do not have such a range of variety as the Royal Marines because the HMKG is made up of conscripts and they have five to six fixed marches they play when changing the guard, and a fix routine of 20 minutes when on a tattoo with the same music. After their 19 months of mandatory service, the band is made up of new recruits and the same procedure is being repeated, now with new selections of marches and a new drum static. First months are dedicated to musical training and drill. Imo they are musically not quiet as qualitatively premium but due to the nature of their service they are more admirable

    This is amazing, simple as. The magnificent playing, the precision, the choreography. I can't begin to imagine the hard work and effort & dedication that goes into putting a performance like this together. Hairs on the back of the neck stuff from start to finish. And oh my god, the drum line! Absolutely superb in performance every way. HM Royal Marines Band, the creme de la creme of all military bands. Brilliant.

    I must tell you that I have a few decades as a musician, both military and civilian. There are so many superb musical organizations in the world today--a miracle in itself given the feelings regarding music education these days. I can think of at least ten military marching units that could easily vie for being the very best in the world. In my personal, and in my professional opinion, if Her Majesty's Massed Bands of the Royal Marines were in such a competition, whenever they were in that competition, they would win it...EVERY time. To my mind, this is THE BEST military musical organization in the world today. This performance simply amplifies that opinion. Oh, how I do love this band! A Yank said that, with utmost admiration and respect to every member. THANK YOU!

    Roya Marines Band Service is the ONLY be the Best in the World. OK, I accept that I am biased my being a former Royal Marines Band Service Product of some Three Years Training at the Royal Marines School of Music in Deal Kent, and we were located in East Barracks, Cold and Draaugty Barrack Rooms where we had a Coal Burning Fire at one end of the barrack room and it was always freezing. Could have done with some female company to keep us warm during those Cold Easterly Winds off the North Sea...... ha ha.
