We're going to do it again. . . . AND . . . We have an update for you all - we are very pleased to announce that we will be joined by some special guests for this event. Abdoulaye Diallo, a Senegalese djembe instructor in the Monterey area and his group Tam Tam Sacre'e are going to be joining us for the afternoon and evening.
Come on out to drum, dance or just enjoy the music.
This drum circle will start with drumming at 3pm, with a pot luck dinner available. It will be at the home of Alan and Penny in the rolling hills near San Juan Bautista (SJB).
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.
