Norwegian Royal Guard Band

For lovers of precision military marching and playing … 8.5 minutes of pure pleasure … on ice yet!
This is the Norwegian Royal Guard Regiment (equivalent to the British and Canadian Guards regiments).
These guys would give the USMC Band and Honor Guard and the Army's 1 BN 3d Infantry (The Old Guard) a run for their money.
It is interesting how a cheesy Hollywood theme (from "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly") can sound impressive when played by an elite military band.This is "River Dance" with boots and rifles!
I can't remember ever seeing a display of precision to beat this! All the precision drill is being performed on ICE!
Those are US made Garand M-1 rifles (WWII), and they are heavy weapons (9 POUNDS EACH).
When that one fellow goes on his own - YOU'VE NEVER SEEN A RIFLE SPUN THAT FAST! Unbelievable!

Thanks Ivan
