Drum Circle with Jeff Niles at Evolve

  • January 11, 2014 · 6:00 PM

Another drum circle has formed and we are helping to promote the event.
This is a really nice space with great energy.

Drum Circle with Jeff Niles

6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at Evolve in Crystal Lake.


Want to feel better and reduce stress? Want to bolster your immune system? Want to reduce anxiety or depression? Want to boost your self esteem?

Community drum circles have been shown to do all that and more!

Drum circles are part social event and part music therapy. And they are great fun! Individuals come together to create a new cohesive whole--to create a sense of unity. No experience is necessary. We are all surrounded by rhythm: our heartbeats, our breathing… Heartbeat rhythms are one of the first things we experience--in the womb.

Join Jeff Niles at Evolve to experience wordless communication as you feel and create a beat that evolves through the participation of each drummer. Drums and other instruments will be available for sharing and for those who do not have their own!

      oh hello agatha, i know who you are now, thanks. that was your first drum circle wasnt it? yes, the whole drum & rings damage each other thing - its easily done, i even actually managed to break an indian gold bangle once. no, not politically incorrect term, i mean 23k india the country gold, which is very soft & i still cant believe a bangle hit the drum enough that it broke! drum was ok tho lol. hope to drum with you again

    Everyone was nice and drumming felt so natural, even though I've never drummed before. I would go again! Evolve is a beautiful store with wonderful selection of stones.

    hi there. not sure if we can make it as 2nd saturdays are another regular drum circle we have been going to for 5 years..... but we did make one of these at Evolve when the other guy was doing them...... which is interesting as his dad is actually a regular at the other one we are talking about! it would depend on weather too as you are much closer to home for us. will let u know if we can make it closer to the date. rumor has it its goign to warm up but with the parking situation at evolve, it needs to be warm!

    went to my first drumming with this group[masked] Jeff was very helpful and the group had nice vibes, plus the store Evolve is so conducive for seeking balance

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.
