Corps stormed the castle esplanade, much to the delight of the audience. Since their first appearance at Edinburgh in 2003, TSDC have gone on to travel all over the world from Russia to Canada, Australia to USA and from South Africa to China as well as many European cities. They’ve also been invited back to Edinburgh, and performed there in 2006, 2009, 2012 and 2015 with a future performance on the cards for 2018. The corps is made up of three elements, the Snareline, Bassline and the Colour Guard.
Top Secret Drum Corps is run by Erik Julliard, one of the founding members who also produces the Basel Tattoo. Since the first Basel Tattoo in 2006 it has now become the biggest Tattoo in the world, second only to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
Interesting fact: since they started in 2003 TSDC have used 11,578 drumsticks!
