Banks of the River Charles

The Charles River - Lot #4 or #1175A or 1228 Soldiers Field Road, Brighton, MA


WHERE: We will either 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. 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, snack, 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 for class 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! If at our store drumroom on Mass Ave, use Mass. Ave. and side streets to park.


EXTRA INFO: If you have an extra chair and/or an extra drum, please bring it 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.
