These fees go directly to pay for a portion of the event expenses, mostly the lighting and sound setup, which costs about $2,100 out of the total $4,500 it takes to run the event.
We encourage groups to look at the judging rubric ahead of time, found under the “Compete” section of our website.
For audience favorite, we will use a text-to-vote polling service called Poll Everywhere, for more information please visit the site: http://www.polleverywhere.com. Note that we will not be using the Twitter integration for voting, only the SMS text-to-vote functionality so that all votes remain private.
The setup for 2015 will be slightly different from prior years. This year we are investing in wireless microphones for each group member, controlled by our veteran technician Sean McLean, on a Behringer X32 Digital Mixer. What remains the same are the acoustic shells across the back of the stage redirecting all sound to the audience.
We encourage all groups to be familiar with proper microphone holding technique. Please watch this short tutorial here: http://youtu.be/3iD4kgO1-gE (skip to 1:00-1:30 for the highlight).

SEIZURE WARNING: while only a narrow range of lighting styles can stimulate a seizure disorder (all of which are off-limits at this event), lighting effects including strobes will be in use during Richmond Rhythm. If you feel that you or someone you know may be affected by this, please ask us for more information using our contact form, and be sure to consult your doctor before attending the show.
