I have no formal training, but I have played in drum circles throughout the years. I play by the feeling I get from the music around me. I own a few different percussion instruments and I always find myself picking one up and tapping out some beat that intermingles with whatever music I happen to be listening to. Playing in those drum circles has always stood out in my memory as some of the best moments of my life, and I always look for one when I am at a music festival (I go to the Gathering of the Vibes every year). The first one I was a part of was at Yasgur Farm in upstate NY. I played there a few times until the county stopped the Woodstock reunions... It was a nice surprise to search the internet for "brooklyn drum circles" and find your meetup! I think I can bring a good vibe to your group. =)
Well I hope first to bring something good to the group. I hope my drums add a nice layer to what you guys already have. For myself, just being able to play with a group with any kind of regularity will bring me happiness, and hopefully my abilities will increase over time through what I learn form others in the group. When it comes to percussion, I feel I am at the beginning of a long journey and I know in my heart that this is a journey my inner self is truly happy to be on!
Hello Brian! My name is Vin Campbell and I found your Meetup online when I searched for drum circles in the Brooklyn area. I have been involved in drum circles over the years and it would be great if I could become part of your group!
