Comments winning finalist Juan Carlos:
"For me, more than anything, winning the Drum-Of finals means great publicity for the school district. It brings some positive energy into this town. I want to give these young kids a strong musical foundation once they get to high school."
The grand finals featured not only a riveting competition between the five grand finalists, but also a series of sets by some of the world's biggest drum icons including Steve Gadd, John Blackwell, Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste, Keith Carlock, Gerald Heyward and Darren King.
