—Nick Davey Receives Trip to Warped Tour Boston Date, Backstage Pass, SABIAN Gear—
SABIAN, the award winning cymbal company, sponsored “The Most Warped Drummer” contest, an online competition at www.mostwarped.com. The contest gave aspiring musicians the chance to upload a performance video to be voted on by fans, for a chance to win a grand prize trip and all-access pass to the Boston Warped Tour stop on July 13, 2010, as well as a collection of SABIAN gear.
Musicians were invited to visit the site and upload a video, up to three minutes long, of themselves playing drums in one of five categories; “Drum Solo,” “With Music,” “Rock/Alternative,” “Jazz/Fusion,” and “Latin-Inspired.” Between April 21 and June 14, the public was able to vote for their favorite drummers. The 10 videos with the most viewer votes moved on to the semi-final round of the competition last week. Top SABIAN artists on the Warped Tour have judged the videos, and determined the grand prize winner – Nick Davey from Ontario, Canada!
Nick has won airfare and accommodations for one to Boston, two all-access passes to the Boston Warped Tour stop, a one-on-one meet and greet with top SABIAN artists, an HHX SABIAN Performance pack of cymbals and a SABIAN BacPac Cymbal Bag set. Nine runners up have received a 16-inch SABIAN Crash cymbal, and as a bonus, the contestant with the most votes that did not win the grand prize – Kevin Steele from Lancaster, PA – will also get his choice of an 18-inch SABIAN cymbal.
“The chance to have your skills viewed by drumming pros like Chris Gaylor and Ryland Steen, not to mention the opportunity to hang with them on tour, is thrilling for musicians. We’re excited to continue our longstanding partnership with the Warped Tour, and to provide drummers with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase their talents and meet their idols,” said Stacey Montgomery-Clark, Vice President of Marketing, SABIAN.
