Review for CROSSMEN PRODUCTIONS INC, San Antonio, TX, USA
I first encountered the Crossmen in 1978 on the televised DCI Finals telecast from Denver, Co. I was struck by their style, energy and unique appearance incorporating capes and painted drummer's faces. I had the distinct honor and privilege of becoming a member of the Crossmen percussion section for the 1982 and 1984 seasons. I felt part of something special and established. The Crossmen Drum & Bugle Corps are an extended family of members, instructors, directors and volunteers. After one marches with the Crossmen they are included in a family that spans years, generations and geography. Even though the organization has relocated to Texas, there is still a strong tie to the Philadelphia area and the former members and instructors that founded this strong competitive unit. Many of which continue to support and honor the corps still today. I place the years I marched with the Crossmen on the short-list of things of which I am most proud.
