1812 Overture with Cannons

This is the best comment to vid.

'"Yeah, I'm in the band" "Oh? What instrument do you play?"

"105mm cannon"
Admit it, you would give anything for a moment like that.... I know I would."

Enjoyed the video! Thanks Supi, I can see you having fun with that question too.

Supi said...

@Keads - You are welcome.

@Stopsign - It almost has me wanting to back to college for a Music degree in 105mm cannon instrument.

My goodness Supi, is this how you get us to stay long time? Cool stuff ... now get back to school.

Pretty stirring, SUpi! Never saw a military band play in their BDUs before. Kinda like it; makes them look more "businesslike".

This was a Japanese military unit, correct?

Supi said...

@Odie - Of course, this is how I get you to stay a long time.

TWP - Neither have I. The man who posted the video likes to video tape Japanese Military Bands.

Really cool!
I've only seen it done live like this one time, and they were using black-powder cannons. Gave a much deeper "THUMP"!
The orchestra in this one was superb, and the lat cannon shot was right on the money!
Well done, gentlemen!
