What we're about

NOTICE: I am asking all members to supply a picture that shows their face, in their profile for this group. (The picture in other groups and in your top level meetup.com profile can be different.) This is so we can learn names of our fellow members.

Due to the reality of Covid-19, our schedule has changed significantly. Normally, we meet and drum at various locations in the SF Bay Area - mostly in the South Bay and Peninsula, including one regularly scheduled drum circle every month (inside the Laughing Giraffe clinic) and others that are not on a fixed schedule. Now, we are limited to outdoor locations only, so Meetup.com will let you know via email as soon as new events are planned.

Our circles are mostly free form with possibly some light facilitation and opportunities to learn new rhythms. We don't do meditation or other rituals. We are all about having fun.

Creating your meetup.com account and joining this group is free. Don't forget a facial picture. You will only be asked to occasionally contribute a dollar to help with the meetup.com fee assessed to the organizer.

All experience levels welcome. If you are a beginner, you will learn by listening, watching and asking questions. Most of the drumming that we do does not require training. Due to Covid-19, we are currently in a mode of adults only events. Some locations may be difficult or impossible for mobility impaired people.

Normally we have drums and other percussion instruments to share but due to COVID-19, we are not generally sharing, so you will need to bring your own. However, if you want to loan something to one of your fellow drummers, that’s OK, if you accept the risk.
