Drum Circle at Laughing Giraffe
This recurring circle has developed a strong core group that comes consistently and we've really gotten to know each other. It's always lively and fun. New members and new drummers are always welcome. Suggested donation to help cover expenses: $5-$10. No one turned away for lack of funds. Extra drums, percussion toys and chairs available but bring more if you can. Children are welcome. Parking is easily found on the street or in the two parking lots behind the clinic. Peace.

What we're about

You will need to supply a profile picture that shows your face in order for your membership request to be approved. ( I mention this first, because 50% of those who want to join, ignore this requirement and therefore are not approved. )

We meet and drum at various locations in the SF Bay Area - mostly in the South Bay and Peninsula. We have one regularly scheduled drum circle every month, and others that are not on a fixed schedule. Meetup.com will let you know all of the dates, times, and locations of our events via email as they are created.

Our circles are mostly free form with possibly some light facilitation. 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 few dollars 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. All ages welcome, but please keep your young children under your direct supervision. Some locations may be difficult or impossible for mobility impaired people.

If you don't own your own drum yet, we always have a few extra drums and percussion instruments available to use. We encourage you to ask questions and try out the drums that we have while you are deciding on what you want to own.
