One thought on “Are These The Top Ten Drum Corps Shows of All Time?

  1. Obviously, the list skews young. The Internet sites listing “tops” seems also to skew young. The “best” of DCI is a contentious online universe. The staff of Amos (and me) do not necessarily agree with the top 10 listed here but it is a rough ranking based on at least 12 other sites plus comments plus the views of acquaintances.
