The Top Secret Drum Corps from Basel, Switzerland is formed of 25 drummers and colorguard members. They become famous worldwide after having performed a demanding six-minute routine at the Edinburgh Tattoo in 2003.
For those of you reading this who haven’t heard about the event, The Edinburgh Tattoo is an annual series of military tattoos (military performances of music) which takes place in the Scottish capital of Edinburgh.
Since their smashing success almost fifteen years ago, the Top Secret was invited to come back to Edinburgh in 2006 with a new and upgraded routine. They were asked to return a third time in 2009 and then again in 2012 and 2015.
The video below shows their performance from three years ago, but the clip is still getting plenty of love and attention online – and for good reason. Under the leadership of Erik Julliard, the band has managed to do great things over the years and impress their audience with every performance they were a part of.
You won’t help but be mesmerized by their drumming style and their incredible talent. Every move is perfectly synchronized, and it is obvious that their act is rehearsed to perfection.
