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.

      Great to see you at St. Colman, Mary. Later, since it gets dark early, we are drumming with candle light in the middle of the circle. Hope you can stay later next time.

      Sorry for the confusion Jane and Great to see you and your friend! The weather was border line, but a little cool by the Lake. We will be drumming in the Church from now on, until spring weather allows us to be at Edgewater again. Please join us often.
