Drum, Eat, Drum #2

The first event that we had at Penny and Alan's place was such a wonderful event, we want to do it again.  This drum circle will start with drumming at 3pm, then break for a pot luck dinner at 5:30, and resume for more drumming after we eat.  It will be at the home of Alan and Penny in the rolling hills near San Juan Bautista (SJB). The format will consist of lots of free drumming and only a few activities thrown in for fun.

SJB is only about a 40 minute drive south on 101 from central San Jose. The town of SJB is to the left of 101 as you are going south, but Penny and Alan's home is on the right, in a peaceful countryside setting.  Their home home sits atop a wooded hill with wonderful views of rolling hills and green pastures.  You really, really, should use the Google map LINK above for the exact location (the green arrow points to their house; it's shape is a hexagon with an old tennis court next to the long winding driveway), otherwise you will probably get lost.  Look for a "Meetup" sign that will mark where to turn from Searle Rd. to Merrill Road, and another marking the driveway.

If you are going to attend, please include a comment letting everyone know what you are going to bring for the potluck.  Beer and wine is allowed.  Penny and Alan will supply the plates, cups, and utensils.  If you have a favorite chair or stool that you use for drumming, you are welcome and encouraged to bring it.  Also, there will be plenty of extra drums and percussion toys to experiment with.

    I concur with all of the positive comments. Mike took some interesting photos, where it looks like we were not in an organized circle, which is true because there were so many different instruments to play, we often moved from one spot to another within the room. Great fun.
