GALVESTON SEAWALL FULL MOON DRUMCIRCLE & DANCE JAM

 


Hey Drummers, Dancers,

Its been since nearly a year since we last jammed on the Island. I think it is high time we do it again, so mark your calendar for July 12th which falls on a full moon. Come join us (i.e. Joy of Djembe Drumming and Imani Vida) on the Galveston Seawall for an evening of fun, drumming and dancing. Included is the backdrop of The Gulf and a tropical breeze.

It promises to be enchanting, hypnotic and a whole lot of fun. So come on out and be a part of this fun experience.
With the summer approaching, this is the place to be. So bring your drum, shakers, bells, claves, thumb cymbals, whistles and crank out some rhythms with us. You dancers be sure to dress up in your fancy costumes and bring your zills, bells and twirling lights. I am looking for all of you to join us and crank out some groovin' rhythms and dance the night away. Or you can just kick back, bring a picnic basket and relax and let the rhythms and sound of the waves carry you away. It is a family friendly environment so by all means feel free to bring the kids.

Be sure to bring a lawn chair or stool and bottled water or Gatorade!!

We will be located on 51st along the Seawall directly across the street from "The Olympia Grill" restaurant. See you there!

      It was my pleasure. One of my favorite events of the the year. The only thing I regret is that don't have an opportunity chat and socialize with the majority of the folks who attend because I have to focus on keeping the drumcircle on track and moving forward. Ashe! Ashe!

    It was an incredible evening of song, dance, twirling lights, music and drum; shared by young and old alike. Just a sea of smiling face, clapping and patting their feet to the music.

    Just ordered a loud battery powered PA that the group might be able to use in future outdoor drum sessions. Because it is battery powered, we can have drum sessions with accompaniment--nearly anywhere on land. Should be in for testing in a week.

    Oh I so want to go but already made other plans. I miss the seawall drumming. Needs to happen more often.

    Are dogs welcome?

  • David

    I have a party to attend later that night in Baytown, but I plan to be there at least for the first hour if at all possible. I don't currently own a drum. Will anyone have an extra?

    July 4

    • nina w.

      I will bring some extra drums and percussion to share.

      2 · July 6

    • David

      Thank you for the response. It is much appreciated.

      July 6

  • Jean H.

    Where can I get an inexpensive drum for my first experience.

    July 5

    • Chen Sun, W.

      I have several hand drums, most used only once or twice. Djembes, bass drum, lots of congas, maracas, other percussions. Feel free to contact me.

      July 5

    • Chen Sun, W.

      I'll make the group an offer. I'm hesitating on buying a powerful, battery-powered PA system. This can solve the noisy background rumble of the Sno-cone stand's generators last time at Galveston, as we can move elsewhere. If I sell some of my percussion equipment, I'll be able to purchase the PA possibly in time to bring to Galveston. Most of my drum equipment is medium to medium-high quality equipment, and prices are usually the lowest anywhere (I know--I shop Internet for music equipment daily). LP, Menil, Tycoon, etc.

  • Kim

    Wow, what an amazing time and sound you guys will generate together! Wish I could join in the fun but I'm unavailable. I'm moving back to Houston so I will come join soon. :) Have a fantastic evening!

    • Gregg P.

      Awesome, I hope you return soon but I the meantime you can still drum under the same full moon on the other side of the world. The energy and spirit of the drums will still be connected even over these distances. :-)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
