The Hawthorne Caballeros. Visually, the most impressive drum corps ever. And musically...They might have it there, too.
Another thematic corps, they play music with a Spanish flair. And do they ever play it.
Go up to anyone who knows a bit about drum corps and say "rump, rump, rump". They'll know exactly what you mean. It's the rhythm to "Espana Cani", the Cab's signature number.
The Cabs disappointed me a bit this year--they didn't make their usual entrance and they didn't play "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White", but I got over it. Damn, they're good.
