Congrats to Shariq Tucker, who has been named winner of Guitar Center's 26th Annual Drum-Off! Returning to the competition for the second year in a row, Shariq came out on top, taking home the winning title, along with an incredible prize packaging valued at over $45,000.
Beating out over 5,000 competitors across the country, Shariq joins the ranks of previous winners who have gone on to play for the likes of Jay-Z, Prince, Beyoncé and more.
Check out his winning performance below.
Of his raw style of playing, Trevor Lawrence Jr., a judge of the competition and drummer for Alicia Keys, Dr. Dre and Eminem, said, "While all of the finalists brought something unique to the table, Shariq had a great confidence and meter in his playing. He's ready to leave the Drum-Off stage and step right onto Center Staging. He learned from last year and came back more polished and determined. I can't wait to watch his career take off."
