Feel Good Friday Video: Florida A&M University Marching 100 playing Duckmouth drum cadence

It's college football season and I'm psyched because I'll get to see my alma mater's marching band perform. Now, if you've not heard of the FAMU Marching 100, there's way too much for me to share on this page. I'll post some links for you to check out at the end of this post.

The video is of the percussion section playing the cadence titled "Duckmouth." I don't know the year or the location of this particular performance but I did learn that the cadence is played by many marching bands throughout the nation. That is largely due to the expansive network and influence of the Marching 100.

For a little Marching 100 trivia, you should know that "Duckmouth" is a memorial cadnce written for a band member who died in 1995. It is my understanding that there are cadences for other members.
