  • Midnite Express singing Southern Style

    2 weekends ago I saw Midnite Express sing a two-step song and a regular southern straight song. Let me tell y'all, Midnite can JAM southern songs. THey sounded [email protected]$$ when they did. I personally think that Midnite enter a southern singing contest just once.

      This is nothing new>>>

      Lot's of Northern drums can sing Southern style and make it sound righteous (ie. High Noon, Little Island Cree, Moccasin Flats etc. etc.)

      Someday, they will have a SPECIAL singing catagory for . .

      " Northern drums that can sing Southern style in a contemporary fashion while eating frybread with their east coast hommies - while their snags are waiting at home because they said they were just 'going out for a loaf of bread!"

        if you can jamm to northern & southern, then you're GOOD!
        it just upsets me during competiton when everyone agrees upon a northern drum and they end up singing a southern song... what's up with that!?

            singin southern style

            i know at schemitzun they have a contest for that. The northen drums pick a southern song from a certain group, and their judges are that particular southern drum group. This goes vice versa too. The southern drums pick a northern song to sing

                  alright now lets face it, if ya put any of these northern drums against sizzortail, yellowhammer, or cozads in a drum contest, they'll get murdered, but that doesnt mean they cant jam southern though...

                          It's all good if a northern drum can breakout and sing a southern song,and a southern drum can breakout and sing a northern song, but I think most of these drumgroups that CAN accomplish this feat, do so to keep their "popularity/reputation" cards. Of course this dont apply when you might be a powwow and their is only one drum for the entire powwow. And this drum has to sing for all divisions. Most of the switch singing that goes on is usually at a very large powwow($$$$$$). Back when WhiteFish Bay was still together and on top, they broke out a Ponca Ruffle at a big powwow. They surprised everyone.....they sounded good but they misspronounced some of the Ponca words. This of course went unnoticed except by the few Poncas that were there and those that grew up listening to Ponca songs.
