Here is what MCB's Alex Conley had to say about the drumoff:
"Guitar Center of Southfield played host to the district finals of Drum off 2008, the largest drum competition in the world.
Some of the best drummers from across the country compete for fame and $25,000 cash. Other perks include endorsement deals, custom drum kits and $4,000 in shopping sprees. And best of all, a write up in Modern Drummer that will hopefully start a career for a lucky and talented musician.
Drummers from all over michigan participated, coming from as far as Kalamazoo to compete. Each a winner from there local store and looking to prove they are the best Michigan has to offer. The small room was packed with supporters and family member, eager to see there own local drummer win, but supportive of all contestants.
By the end of the night Anthony Burns from Saginaw was declared the winner. His impressive skills wowed the crowd like none other. Afterward, he performed a five minute solo that was actually better than his contest winning performance.Given the level of talent so far, the Chicago finals in December should be something to watch." - MCB's Alex Conley
