Teams can register here.

While contestants heading to the Cage will need to work on their team rhythm in advance of the tourney, they can take a page from a new exhibit launching at American Tobacco showcasing Durham’s soul, funk and R&B past.

Soul SouvenirsSoul Souvenirs: Durham’s Musical Memories from the 60’s and 70’s will survey the origins, influences, politics, history, local landmarks and media impact of Durham’s rich soul music scene.
