Important Announcement!

Paralounge Drum Gathering
November 16 ? 18 2007

Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park - Live Oak, Florida

There has been an important change in the structure of the Paralounge Drum Gathering event. Due to unfortunate circumstances, the Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival has been forced to move from their location in Quincy Florida. They have an enormous investment in time and money that could be lost and a community of people that look forward to their event. The Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival was scheduled to be November 16 ? 18, 2007, the same date as the Paralounge Drum Gathering. Due to the extreme nature of Bear Creek?s situation, Paralounge agreed to share the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park.

Both events will be at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park during November 16 ? 18 2007.

They will remain completely separate events. The Paralounge has agreed to move our event site to another area of the park. We will have all the same comforts as the previous area. We will have the VIP bathrooms installed in the area. They are the bathrooms that are provided to the artist during major concerts, so they will be comfortable to use. There will be electricity and water available around the area. There is a road from the event area that leads directly into the front of the park, with access to the Café, store, main office, and all the other great things the park offers.

The Paralounge Drum Gathering strives to create a heart based atmosphere that is family and community structured. We create a respectful environment that promotes musical expression and creativity. The Paralounge Drum Gathering is acting on faith that our drum circle community understands the act of kindness we are demonstrating by allowing the Bear Creek Festival to alter our current establishment. The integrity of the drum circle is our foremost concern. Both events will have active security. In order to gain access from one event to another, you must purchase an upgraded wristband. The Paralounge event is considered a family gathering. Anyone who threatens the tranquility of the event will be escorted out.

This is a one time agreement. The Paralounge understands it is made up of a very kind community. It was our responsibility to act as such and lend a hand to another community that needed the act of kindness to sustain. We appologize for the last minute announcement and hope everyone will understand the changes and help us create another beautiful drum gathering event.

When faced with difficult and seemingly undesirable situations. I find it best to ask one question; I wonder what good will come from this?

Hopefully their people respect the sacred space of our family drum gathering. Hopefully this will expose the powerful and transformational force of the drum gathering to a wider audience.

... and at least Bear Creek does have a good music line up that includes our hometown heros the Legendary Joint Chiefs.
