Cleveland Drum Circle Meetup Group Weekly Meetup

This is an open, free-form circle, usually without facilitation. A drummer usually starts a beat and others join in, as they wish. There are some extra drums and percussion. We try to keep it simple, at first, so beginners feel comfortable. Intermediate, advanced and professional drummers will take leads and solos, once the rhythms are in synch.

Sometimes a professional or intermediate member will teach some free, beginner rhythms to the group, at the start of the circle, then open jamming takes place.

Participants come and go during the two to four hours during the circle. Beside drummers, we occasionally have wind instruments, guitars, dancers or hoop dancers join us. Many people just come to watch, listen and enjoy the drumming in the park. We encourage park visitors to participate or watch.

Some picnic table bench seats are available or bring your own chairs.

Enter our warm weather location, Edgewater State Park from State Route 2 - the Shoreway, just west of downtown Cleveland and head left to the FREE large parking lot of the lower level. Public rest rooms, water fountains and concessions are available starting Memorial Day weekend.

    Fantastic! Nice weather, the rain held off, like we drummed the clouds away! We had a great group of new and returning drummers that we haven't seen in a while! We started out simple and low volume, then worked up to some more interesting rhythms. Thanks to Mary and her daughter for dancing and hooping. Thank you everyone that attended!!!!!

    Thank you for the warm welcome and excellent drumming! The nice thing about this group is that it is so relaxed and open (unconditional, nonjudgmental); the challenge of this group is that it is so relaxed and open (ha ha ha -- I guess the 3 pm start time is an approximation; yesterday, folks didn't show up until 4 pm). It's a beautiful thing! Once folks started showing up, the transformation was well worth the wait!
