I Love L.A. Series ~ Drum Downtown ~ Grand Park DTLA

  • Jul 6, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

So much fun and it's all FREE! The event organizers will provide you with your choice of drums, bells, tamborines and or a variety of percussion instruments to make music with. There will be a drum master who conducts the entire group and it is a BLAST! Watch the below video to get a sense of the fun! This event is for all ages, singles or families alike! You might want to wear comfortable shoes cause you might feel compelled to dance to the rhythms and music we all create together. Bring a bottle of water is a good idea. We should be in a covered pavillion near the fountain.

AFTERPARTY ~ After the musical beat, we'll have drummed up an appetite and we can walk, drive or ride a bike about 5 blocks to Chinatown for some dim sum. I'm bringing my bike which avoids all parking and traffic hassles.

After the event, if a group congregates, there's Chinatown Dim Sum, Little Tokyo sushi/ramen/yakitori or any number of DTLA eateries.

There's also Grand Central Market 3-5 blocks away with a bunch of food vendors and some great bargains on produce. There's some new food stalls there definitely worth checking out.

    Everyone, Look for me carrying a big Nikon dslr. I'll be shooting stills and video of this fun event. Bring a bottle of water, maybe a snack and then we can grab some lunch at either Chinatown or maybe you might want to try Kula sushi.
