Rhythm X 2011 Show Unveiled: ‘Stand By Me’

Just read this article on my feed from WGI.org:

Inspired by the Playing for Change project and based on the original Ben E. King song of the same name, in 2011 Rhythm X will bring 'Stand by Me' to life. Look for themes from the classic coming of age movie Stand by Me, updated for the new millennium with Rhythm X's trademark athleticism, musicality and innovation.

Rhythm X will be performing locally in the Mid-East Performance Association and nationally at the WGI Dayton Regional, Mid-South Percussion Championship and World Championships. 

Rhythm X was founded in 2002 and is under the direction of Tim Jackson and Craig Dunn. In their inaugural season in WGI Independent Open Class, Rhythm X was the PIO Champion and since joining World Class has medalled six times, winning the PIW Championship in 2008 and 2009. Designing together since 2008, Tim Fairbanks, Andrew Markworth and Tim Jackson all return to the design team to bring you Rhythm X 2011... Stand by Me.

"No matter who you are... No matter where you go, in your life... at some point, you gonna need somebody... to Stand by You."

Sounds pretty cool. I can't wait to see their show come April. Check out their website for more.
