THANK YOU DC!!! It's amazing to witness first hand the growth of the DC music scene, and we want to celebrate this with a proper festival and party for ALL students, bands, partners, friends, and family -- past, present, and future!!

We'll be taking over Union Stage with a big thank-you bash for our people. We'll have 6+ bands, 4+ business partner tables, happy hour specials all night, and discounted 7DC swag. Free event - come through!

---Here's the plan---
We'll have several performances of bands who have formed and risen in the scene through lessons, Flashband, potluck jams, or other community events -- preceded by a proper speech by Miles about why they are awesome. In putting this event together, we realized there were a crazy number of bands that fit into this category... So we will pick a few for this round, and hopefully keep this festival thing going in the future! Confirmed bands as of 1/4:
Smokin' on Planes - featuring long time student Omri Malul who started with no experience on drums
Tuff Lover - featuring enrollments manager Nikhil Venkat and his crew of 7DC teachers on drums

We'll also host tables of several key partners that support the 7DC tribe in very important ways:
Chuck Levin's Washington Music Center for tuning all our drums every other week and always taking the time to help out Miles with gear fixing questions and strategic advice.
Rock'n Repair at 7DrumCity and Peter Serano for keeping all of our gear in tip-top shape, making us look cool when we give tours of the studio, and always enthusiastically helping out when we are in a pinch.
This Could Go Boom! - for a fruitful partnership and support through the Women Rock Flashband and other exciting events
Project HERA - for partnering with us time after time through many events
GoldPants Rentals - for always supplying top shelf "sound guy services" throughout the development of 7DrumCity, as well as gear recommendations, friendship, and networking!

We can make the world a better place by building community and sharing good vibes. Come practice these beautiful virtues at Union Stage on 1/27, make some music, and eat some friggin' pizza!
