The world’s first Hip Hop session drummer. When Keith LeBlanc got his gig at Sugar Hill Records in 1979, there was no such thing as a hip hop drummer. There were no rules of thumb. No drum machines. Just DJs cutting beats off records. Keith was the first to do it on drums.

Madison Scouts, one of two all-male drum corps, was founded in 1938 by a group of Madison businessmen who decided their city should have a scout drum and bugle corps. Often referred to as just “Madison” or “the Scouts”, the corps has often been known for delivering fiery Latin-themed shows. Madison Scouts won the DCI World Championship in 1975 and 1988, and is one of the oldest continually operating drum corps competing in Drum Corps International events.
