The competition heats up again on Friday, July 6 at Drums Along the Rockies in Casper, Wyo., The Whitewater Classic in Whitewater, Wis. and CYO Nationals Tribute in Quincy, Mass. Performances listed below are on July 4, unless noted, and all times shown are local. Check this page often leading up to the Fourth.
