The Army’s Band of the Coldstream Guards have done their own tribute to the late Michael Jackson, as they played one of his most famous hits Thriller near Buckingham Palace. Around 40 drummers, trumpeters, clarinet and trombone players took part. Hordes of tourists were left open-mouthed as they were treated to the spectacular show on Wednesday by the top military band.

Same here, the lady is absolutely fantastic and credible, the guys look like clones having gone throuhg drill corps. Astounding precision and fantastic show!

Maybe this is a good idea (havent been in prison - in the US! - so I do not know)?

Here the Coldstreams at a Tatoo, compare to the (later) Top Secredt Drum Corps, also based on the "Thriller" rhythm!

These guys can be seen for free (get tickets early as they go fast), every Friday night during the summer at the Marine Corps 8th & I Barracks, at the corner of 8th and I streets in Washington, DC. The Marine Corps Band also plays these nights.
