PRESS RELEASE 9/28/15: BREAKING NEWS—> 14-Year-Old Eugene High School Student WINS Golden Gate Battles in San Francisco, CA.

Madison Meadow Music is pleased to announce the crowning of our very good friend, Dakota “Shortstack Beatbox” Seven as the champion of this weekend’s “Golden Gate Battles” beatbox tournament in San Francisco, on the evening of Sunday, September 27, 2015.

Dakota Seven, 14 (a.k.a. “Shortstack Beatbox”) was winner out of 55 participants in the single elimination series of beatbox contests hosted by SYzYgY at the Honey Hive Gallery in San Francisco, California and sponsored by Beatbox Without Borders: Think Outside the Beatbox, Swissbeatbox, States Of Beatbox, and The Honey Hive Gallery. The event was organized by Austin “Wobbles Beatbox” O’Brien and American Beatbox Archive. The competition was judged by Beat Rhino, Francisco ‘Frisco’ Romero, and Luis Iturbide.

A freshman at Churchill High School in Eugene, Oregon, Shortstack has been in high school for less than a month. The winner of five awards at last April’s “Make A Band” Competition in
Eugene, Dakota has been a crowd favorite at the Hop Valley Tasting Room’s “Scotty’s Student Showcase” series, as well as the Ambience Crew at the Oregon Country Fair, and most recently, as a drummer for Bella Steel. He will be making a cameo appearance at The Sugar Beets’ 25-Year “Silver Anniversary Ball” at the MacDonald Theater in Eugene on Saturday, October 24.

Bandmate Scotty Perey (Bella Steel / The Sugar Beets / The Shedd Institute’s “Magical Moombah”) says of Dakota, “We can say, enthusiastically and without reservation, that not only is Dakota a walking, breathing, living embodiment of everything rhythmic and funky, his amazing musical talents are equalled by his character. He is one of *the* sweetest, kindest, and most humble people you will ever meet. He is in it for all the right reasons, a wonderful example and role model for the rest of us. He is the epitome of the expression ‘It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.'”
