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.

AFTER PARTY ~ 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.


I love these type of events. LACMA free Jazz concerts. Dance Downtown. Drum Downtown. Los Angeles during the summer gives us lots of great reasons to enjoy living in L.A. There is so much to see and do and all right here in the heart of the city.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
