Sidebar: “Tattoo” originates from Dutch: In the 17th Century, the command “doe den tap toe” (close the beer taps) was given via a drummer or a fifer at the end of the evening, when the troops had to return to their barracks. In English this phrase was shortened to the word “Tattoo” and this is now the recognized word for military music festivals.
