Slam – Grades 7-9

Slam is an introductory performance ensemble and includes members with previous percussion experience in grades approximately 7 through 9.  Slam members audition for instrument placement. They rehearse moderately advanced cadences and percussion pieces and will perform shows at various local/nearby events during the season.

Starting in November and running through April, rehearsal for Slam will be held on Saturdays from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at First Lutheran Church, 601 N Cliff Avenue, Sioux Falls. All rehearsals will be held at this location unless there is a scheduling conflict. Notice of any changes will be sent out via email as soon as that information is made available. Alternate rehearsal location is Sioux Falls Empire Fairgrounds National Guard Armory Building. Check the Events Calendar regularly for location updates.

The Slam uniform is black Groove t-shirt, Groove hat, black wristbands, blue jeans, black & white Converse All-star shoes (or something comparable), and sunglasses of your choice. The Groove t-shirt and hat are available through Groove, Inc. The cost of the uniform is not included in the dues amount and is the responsibility of the group member to purchase.

Winter line (November-April) membership dues are $120/month.  The first month’s payment is due at the first practice/drum checkout.  4 ACH payments are set up to follow for December, January, February and March.  Pay in full by November 30 and receive $50 off.
