For many years, Guitar Center stores has been holding an annual Nation-wide amateur drumming competition. Drummers of all ages and styles sign up for the competition in all of the Guitar Center Stores (they have 214 stores this year). The single-elimination style competition begins in late September in every store. As the field narrows, the competitions move to fewer stores. By the end of the year, one champion is awarded $25,000 and all sorts of drum gear.
This event is the District Finals competition for Minnesota (the last competition in MN). The winner of this round moves on to compete in the Regional Finals in Chicago.
I'll confirm the time during week of the event. The previous round of competition began at 7PM.
If anyone's interested, we can discuss the competition over some food and drink somewhere nearby, after the competition.
