System Blue is thrilled to announce that Top Secret Drum Corps from Basel, Switzerland will be joining the System Blue Family.
Since 2003 Top Secret has traveled the world, from Russia to Canada, Australia to the United States, South Africa to China, and all over Europe. They have performed at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in 2006, 2009, 2012, and 2015. Their performances are well known for their precision, humor, and thrilling pace. With twenty-plus years of passion, imagination, and dedication, these top Basel drummers have proven themselves to be a world-class act.
Top Secret will perform on System Blue Professional Marching Percussion. The corps is composed of 12 snares and 5 bass drums. They will make their debut performance on the new drums at the Basel Tattoo in July of 2018. Top Secret is an international influencer. The corps has YouTube videos with over 18 million views and a tremendous following on all their social channels.
"Top Secret Drum Corps is an incredible fit with our System Blue Family," remarks Dave Gibbs. "We have tremendous respect and admiration for their level of excellence and look forward to many years of collaboration. They bring an international voice and excitement to the brand, and we look forward to hearing and seeing them perform on System Blue Professional Marching Percussion.” —David Gibbs, Chairman of the Board, System Blue
System Blue is incredibly excited to add Top Secret to the family. Fellow System Blue artists, The Blue Devils, joined forces with Top Secret in 2015 to perform together at the Basel Tattoo. This partnership brings their journey full circle as they continue performing for the world on System Blue Professional Marching Percussion.
Top Secret will join the 6-time and newly crowned 2018 WGI World Champion RCC Indoor Percussion and the 18-time and current DCI World Champion Blue Devils to endorse and use System Blue percussion instruments. These three iconic organizations trust System Blue to help them excel and become the most recognized and awarded programs of their kind throughout the world.
"The opportunity to join the System Blue Family is a huge honor for the Top Secret Drum Corps," remarks Erik Julliard. "We are very proud to have a collaboration with the 18-time DCI World Champion Blue Devils. They are not only the best drum corps in the world, but have also become good friends since our joint performance at the Basel Tattoo in 2015".
