Do you know anything about Tattoo? (drums)

I'm looking for some information about the Tattoo Drum Corps in Basel. (For you that are not familiar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVMiHC2Bj6k)

It seems that they only play in Basel in July.
http://www.baseltattoo.ch/portal/

So does anyone know what they do for the rest of the year?

So you're not talking about the short little bloke from Fantasy Island who's catchphrase was "Boss, boss, the plane!"?

Always a good party piece...following up the words "do you want to see my tattoo?" by getting on your knees and coming out with the catchphrase

Trouble is...hardly anyone remembers it now

A film favourite of mine second only to Shawshank Redemption. Funny how it takes someone to suggest looking at clips of it on youtube to make you think of doing it!

Same same but different. The Edinburgh Tattoo is the daddy, Basel is a much smaller, but well worth it. The pipe bands are not as grand as at the Embra Tattoo.

Hello,

I am going to the one in Lucern!!! Where Top Secret are also playing. If your bf is playing in the show can you ask him if they do a warm up before. As I would very much like to see that as well.

Paul
