WGI Dayton Regional

WGI Dayton Regional Recap

This past weekend both Rhythm X ensembles competed at their first WGI Regional of X17 in Dayton, Ohio. It was a successful and productive weekend for each ensemble in both rehearsals and performances. Winds took first place in their class in both prelims and finals, and Percussion took second in both prelims and finals

Winds delighted the crowd with their show "Jumping Through Loops," featuring gorgeous uniforms from Fred J. Miller Inc. and the vibrant tarp from Field and Floor FX. Percussion added 11 back drop props produced by Pageantry Innovations, each standing 12' tall. Keep an eye out for more exciting additions as the show progresses!

The X Store was open both Saturday and Sunday for Rhythm X fans to grab all the best gear. Stop by at our next show to try on a jacket, test out the Tim Fairbanks and Tim Jackson Signature Innovative Percussion sticks, and pick up a lanyard for the recently reduced price of only $5!

We always love hearing from and seeing our fans on regional weekends! With gorgeous weather this weekend, tons of our fans were able to stop by to watch us warm up in the lot and say hi. Stay tuned on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat [rhythmxinc] for updates on the location of our warm up and performance times each weekend!

X14 had another great weekend at the WGI Dayton Regional at Kettering Fairmont High School, competing in prelims on Saturday and finals on Sunday. Rhythm X was proud to take first place in Independent World Class at finals! Take a look at prelims scores and finals scores

The weather was finally nice enough to allow the cast to warm up in the lot! All lot warm ups are open to the public and we welcome you to come watch! Times and locations are posted on Twitter each weekend. These fans loved watching in the lot!

New at The X Store this weekend were Tim Fairbanks and Tim Jackson signature sticks by Innovative Percussion and stamped with the Rhythm X classic logo! Several fans and percussionists stopped by to try them out and take a pair home with them. These are the sticks all of the snares and quads use in the show- you should try them out too! Find them online at The X Store later this week or at The X Store booth at the WGI Mid-South Championships in two weeks.
