MEPA Championships Show Recap

Rhythm X had a successful and productive weekend at MEPA Championships with both Percussion and Winds earning Gold medals in their classes! Congratulations on a great season to all of the ensembles who competed this weekend at MEPA Championships. A huge shout out to all of our awesome fans in the audience who made both Prelims and Finals come alive! View the recaps below:


Fans were excited to visit The X Store this weekend to get their hands on our Vintage Crew Neck Sweatshirt, Vintage Black Pocket Tee, and Grey Logo Jackets, as well as enter the X16 Drum Raffle! Order your merch online and come prepared for WGI Championships next week and then stop by The X Store in the WGI Expo tent to check out our brand new merch. Limited Edition X16 Rhythm SeXy tees will also be available starting Wednesday when The X Store opens. Rhythm SeXy tees sell out fast, so make sure you plan to get yours before they're gone!


Now that the weather is getting nicer, we love to see our fans in the lot at all of our performances! Keep an eye on our social media accounts for times and locations where you can stop by to say hey and watch the ensembles warm up in the lot. An audience full of fans in the lot makes for a really great time!

It's a beautiful day for an outdoor warm-up! #RhythmX #drumfam #evansdrumheads #X16 #thealpha🌕

After a fantastic weekend with MEPA Championship Gold Medals around our necks, Rhythm X is looking forward to and preparing for WGI World Championships next week! We are extremely excited to welcome European X for their first ever appearance in the United States as they compete in WGI World Championships. They land this Thursday and we're anxiously counting down to their arrival so that the entire Rhythm X family can be together for the very first time!

Next weekend also marks the beginning of the Dayton Dragons Drumline's season with the Dayton Dragons Baseball Opening Day on April 9! Both the Dragons Drumline and Rhythm X Percussion will perform in the Opening Day Parade, followed by a free concert performed by Rhythm X Percussion on the plaza from 2-3:30 pm. All of these events are open to the public so we hope to see you there! The Dragons Drumline is a program of Rhythm X, Inc., providing local percussion students in the Dayton/Cincinnati area an opportunity to perform for thousands throughout the summer at Dayton Dragons Baseball games and learn from world-class Rhythm X instructional staff. Members of both Percussion and the Dragons Drumline are looking forward to performing with and for each other. 

Keep an eye out on The X Blog for a day-by-day schedule of Rhythm X, Inc. throughout WGI Championships week! See you next week!

Got this good shot of @rhythmxinc in the lot at #WGI Mid South Regional Championships in Bowling Green today.
