I give mad props to all drum groups!!!! But I agree w/snowrose515......Midnite Express is pretty good too, plus I know a few of them. But over all....... to all drum groups.

Seems to have been awhile since anyone has posted on this poll but, i couldnt go without, i just HAD to vote.

I give *MAD* props to ALL Southern Drum Groups, they have it going on.

BUT, i HAVE to go with *Yellow Hammer*. . .they are my all time favorite. These dudes jam from the heart, I can feel it when i hear them.

Yellowhammer!

~ ~ Y E L L O W H A M M E R ~ ~

These groups are all awesome, but YellowHammer and WhiteTail by far are my favorites, as well as my family group *Standing Eagle* I have had the honor of being able to sing a song or two with these groups. Summer of '04' was GREAT! *LOL* Just hope Big Freddy can still butter Johnny Moe's Bunzzzzzz....*Yikes* well atleast that's what he told us. I think I better keep everything else on the *DL* *lol* The Memories.....*sniffles* Well hope to see you all down the pow-wow trail. *AHO* God Bless to you all!

This was a tough one to decide but my all-time favorite is Midnight Express. Heard 'em a few years ago at a small powwow, bought a cd and still love listening to them.

Cedar Tree Singers

I'd have to say that all of the drums listed are great! I have heard sizzortail, yellow hammer and some of the others and just love the job they do, makes ya wanna dance!

But, I have to think about the "less exposed." Cedar Tree is awesome, that Rose boy has a voice that just won't quit! Believe they are NC drum. Also, Red Oak Singers (NC) is one to watch for, they need to take their show on the road. Jason, you are a heck of a singer!!! Then there is Black Bear, a group from OK (I believe) but, most live over here now (VA/NC/WV??) They are great too!!!

I'm really proud of these guy's and appriciate what they do!!!

Jim,

Cedartree is out of Northern Virginia...a lot of people say DC though. Black Bear...yeah...those boys are from Oklahoma and although they live here out East, they still keep those strong ties back home.

As far as Red Oak,...thanks for the compliment, suggestion and vote of confidence. I've gotten much of my learning from both of these drums and the singers around them. Hopefully Pow Wow Idol will help us to do just that...take OUR show on the road. While many may think it's "my show"...Red Oak doesn't even have a show without the men and ladies the compliment one another.

Jason

Wink Redstone Singers of Oklahoma

[SIi agree with what you said OU Native...but i have to say that Redstone is the best. i may be byass since it's my g-pa's group, but they have the deep old school southern tone and they know a lot of old songs. plus they can sing northern, not many people know that. they don't travel as much as they used to, but they are still great and g-pa is getting better everyday!!

Red Stone Okla

Many Ah-Ho's Lilchief! Hopefully we'll be doin' the drum group thing more this coming year. I personally am liking the fact that there seem to be more good southern drums around these days! And let us not forget the pre 1990 southern drums like the Gunslingers, Brave Scout, Eagle Claw, Rough Arrow, Black Star, Gray Eyes, Wounded Soldier and Gray Horse of Oklahoma. I know I probably missed some but I think its important to acknowledge these drums that helped pave the way for us today!

Man, it's hard to say who you like more in a poll like this...

I voted for Yellowhammer, but could easily have voted for Cozad or Zotigh as well.

Someone asked about Rose Hill, I know they did a pow wow down in Kentucky about 4 years ago, but haven't heard from them over this way since (which I don't blame 'em... LOL) Those guys were that ones that always got me going... Live from Hinkley is probably still my favorite Southern CD I own.

Just my 49 cents worth...
