In the Summer we often have our circles outside in the Boston, MA. Check Meetup.Com for more info. We're where we often are.
The Charles River - Lot #4 or #11175A or 1228 Soldiers Field Road, Brighton, MA
We're the nice folks with the Drums!
Price: $10.00/per personChildren under 12 - free.
A high-energy, FUN, celebration of drumming and community. For beginners wanting to try something new, friends, experienced drummers, dancers. We celebrate the traditions - rhythms that have built energy for hundreds of years for celebration, dance, ritual - just plain FUN! As well as whatever you bring to it!
We'll have drums to share, and support for newcomers, and energy for everyone.
IMPORTANT! We will be at Parking Lot #1 (first choice) if it is empty enough or Parking Lot #4 (the larger Publick Theater lot) second choice but maybe necessary with the numbers of cars coming! So either 1228 Soldiers Field Rd. or 1175 Soldiers Field Rd, Brighton, MA.
PLEASE BRING: a folding full-height chair, your drum, water, sun block, fruit, a hat and maybe a jacket. On a hot day, it can be 7-10 degrees cooler at The Charles. Parking should be easy in the huge lot.
RAIN PLAN: If it rains we will keep the same day and time but move the location indoors to DrumConnection - 177 Mass Ave, Arlington, MA 02474 Call 781-316-8068 if you are unsure of inside/outside. There will be a recorded message or maybe you get ME! Parking is not bad on a Saturday afternoon. Use the side streets.
EXTRA INFO: If you have an extra chair and/or an extra drum, please bring, if you can. If you have dunun (Mandingo Bass Drums) please bring with stands, or use some chairs and straps. Sticks! No Drum? We'll have some so don't let that stop you. We'll even have extra chairs.
OTHER IDEAS: Bar-B-Que! For the last few years we've been holding a BBQ. If anyone would like to volunteer to get a grill down there and get some help setting it up, we will ask people to bring food stuffs for it. Or, we can do cold food stuffs and that will work fine. Whatever's clever! Just let me know if you want to do the BBQ volunteer duty. Free pass into drum circle for that!
TIME: We will start at 4 and end at 6, however folks may stay and make a night of it! All chairs we bring will have to leave at 6 but other chairs and drums you bring stay till you want the party to end! Party on!
RECENT ACOLADE! This Drum Circle is a great stress reliever after a long week of work and I wish it were every Friday night!! Boston Drum Circle attracts a wonderful , eclectic group of people that share the common bond of hand drumming. It is always wonderful to have the multi talented Fanta leading the Circle. Her singing, dancing, and drumming are all 5 star. Thank you for a great night of Drumming! Carla (thanks Carla - love you too and all)
