1) Southern Thunder
2) Yellowhammer
3) Southern Boyz
4) Cozads
5) Omaha Whitetail

By the way, those are in no particular order. I think it's honestly a good thing. Gives everybody a little more opportunity to sing. Ithink it might also kick up the competition if you get just seven Southern drums in there. Should be quite interesting.

in alphabetical order

Cozad
Omaha Whitetail
Sizzortail
Southern Boys
Southern Thunder
Yellowhammer
Youngbird

P.S. if Sizzortail is not travelling anymore then i'll put Bad Medicine in their place

pow-wow-wooer 02-05-2002 12:39 PM

Hey a quick question for you southern dudes. Here in the north we are catergorized as two seperate styles. Is it kind of the same thing down south? 'Cause I was thinking drums like white tail, and rosehill, would be more comtemp sounding, and drums like bad medicine and greyhorse would be the straighter style. What do you think? Or is southern just southern?

SouthernSinger 02-05-2002 12:48 PM

For the most part, I'd say Southern is just southern. You're right though--some groups are a lot more contemporary sounding than others. All in preference I guess. But I've never heard of separate distictions.

My 7 invites would be:

Sizzortail
YoungBird
Yellowhammer
Southern Thunder
Cozads
Omaha-WhiteTail
Southern Boyz

That would be a hellofa contest!

SouthernSinger 02-05-2002 02:39 PM

Seems most of us seem to agree on:

!)Yellowhammer
2)Southern Thunder
3) Cozads
4) Omaha Whitetail
5) Southern Boys

That leaves Young Bird, Bad Medicine and Sizzortail. Which 2 of the 3 are stronger? Or perhaps this is a disadvantage of having only 7!

3. Yellohammer
4. Rosehill
5. Grey Horse
6. Youngbird
7. Cozad

X49ER 02-05-2002 10:02 PM

I think that would be a good idea to have contempory southern and old style.

Alot of groups like youngbird, Southern boys, Otter trail, Rose hill
etc. they sing new songs at big competion dances for the most part.

Cozad, Bad Medicine, white tail, grey horse sing older or songs that stick pretty close to thier tribe.

Don't mean to put any Drums into catogorys though.

just my thought if they did somthing like that they should stick to all new songs or all old songs..


i have spoken!

Has any one seen my snow cone

First tymer - Who's officially invited in the other categories?

SouthernDrumSinger 02-07-2002 03:45 PM

I got a question......


How did southern thunder not make the list? Is it because they haven't been in a while?

first_tymer 02-07-2002 03:49 PM

Kiwehnzii,
Don't tell anyone I told you....lol

Original is:
High Noon
Battle River
Mandaree
Haystack
Mountain Soul
White Tail
Snake Island

Contemp is
Blacklodge
Blackstone
Eyabay
Southern Cree

It is hard to pick as while i really enjoy so thunder they don't travel much, especially to schemitzun soo i'd have to say definately youngbird -omaha white tail and yellowhammer would be my top three.

i used to hope for bad medicine as my contest drum but they just don't show that "make em dance" spirit anymore or at least the last couple of times i heard them (sorry), sizzortail depends on who up for it, cozad always the same, i guess consistancy is good but where's the fire? sbz they'd be good showed spirit at red earth.

larie101396 01-26-2005 04:31 AM

I would pick

YellowHammer-Host

Wisconsin Dells
Youngbird
Sizzortail
Southern Thunder
WhiteTail
Cozad
YellowJacket
