Due to the amount of time it takes to set up a drum kit, we have found that a DVD of your drumming or band's performance works much better for you and us. A DVD will allow you the time at home to tune and adjust your levels and will give us a more accurate representation of your talent than you would get in our audition room where no sound checks are allowed. The DVD does not have to be of professional quality. It can be as simple as your friend taping you at home or a prior show at which you have performed.
If you would still like to play something "live" in the audition room, you may bring a portion of the drum kit (ex: a snare and hi-hat) so that you are able to literally ‘walk in and play'. Due to the amount of auditions we need to conduct, NO SET UP TIME WILL BE ALLOWED! You can bring in a drum kit on a 4x4 dolly, but again you need to be able to roll it into the audition room in one trip.
Should you move on to the next round, you will be able to use a drum kit provided by the show.
