WHO IS TCDC?
TCDC or Tampa Community Drum Circle started over 5 years ago provides a space for like minded hand drummers (all Levels) and percussionists to drum peacefully and interact together in a non facilitated outdoor camp- like, potluck style drum circle gathering. The rhythms we each contribute to the circle lead the way. We drum and dance together while sharing positive flowing energy to last throughout the month until the next. This monthly fireside potluck circle is held outdoors rain or shine with a large sheltered area to move under if it should rain. It is family and community oriented, bring the kids! Every month we have a theme and you are encouraged to participate!
Last week we were featured in the Tampa Tribune in 2 different sections
The new home to TCDC is a Huge spacious horse & animal farm / zoo called Horsepower for kids. The farm is open to TCDC once a month at a special family event rate of $3.00 per person and you have access to visit the animals. the animals include Horses, Zorse ( Zebra Horse),,Goats,Cows,Braham Bull, Ram,Pigs, rabbits, Coamundi, foxes, Prairie dogs, Exotic Cats, Reptile Area, Turtles, Llamas,Birds,Donkeys,Ostriches, Turkeys,Geese, Peacocks, Deer,petting zoo area
In the beginning there were hardly any drum circles and no other Tampa bay drumming meet up groups... not until TCDC originator, Sherry Groff put it on the map and created a tampa drum community. The group is now run by DJ Palumbo with great help from a great team, the location has changed to Horsepower 4 kids (formerly hire a pony)--With new changes & drum circle promoting there is now a drum circle every night of the week -the drumming community has thrived!! please visit the calendar on this group page to view listings of current & active drum circles throughout the Tampa bay area and beyond. There are some however some that have asked us not to post them because they are not open to the general public.

Fire spinners hula hoop artists and dancers welcome!
Drum = FUN
Drums are not usually provided at this community drum circle, however I will do my bst to make sure there is someone renting some....otherwise some drummers may allow you to borrow theirs but always ask before playing someone Else’s drum. If they do... please remove jewelry while playing someone else drum for it can damage the drum head and can cause hand injuries. Playing a hand drum with a drum stick is just as damaging if not more and; hand drums are very costly so please respect each others drums. Parents please supervise your children handling drums… We many drum masters in our community that make or sell drums and hold teaching/ building drum workshops.
sorry metal drum kits and stick drums are not welcome, Base drums and frame drums are ok
New members and non members are welcome, Beginners welcome! If you are new,please come over & introduce yourself as some of us organizing gets busy we don't always have a chance to greet everyone but intend to!!! Everyone is very friendly so please don't be shy!!!

We are looking forward to meeting you soon!!
