Bring your drum
And your restless feet
As one we become
Hearts shall open and meet
Tap your fingers
And sway to the beat
As the rhythm rises and lingers
Together we feel more complete
Come alone or bring your friends. You don't have to be a drummer to come; come just to watch or listen. And if you're a drummer, all skill levels are welcome. And feel free to bring other acoustic instruments -- didjridoo, flute, guitar, harmonica, whatever.
Microphones and PA will be available for people who would like to sing or for use with other soft instruments. We will also have a few 'Toyboxes' full of other percussive noise-toys and some extra drums for sharing. If you have extra instruments to share, please bring them.
As for dancing, you DO NOT need to be a trained dancer (although we do have those from time to time) to get up and move to the beat. As long as YOU are having fun dancing, anything goes.
It's great to see the drummers, didj players, and dancers all playing off of each other.
KIDS ARE MOST WELCOME!!
POTLUCK: If you're joining us for potluck (at 6pm), please bring a dish that'll feed about 5 to 6 people. More is not necessary. Don't worry about the RSVP count.
Here's to joyful noise!
Here's to you!
Love and Light,
~ Jeff (and Sage, Becca, Doug, Dave, Eric, Susan)
