What we're about

Meet other local hand drummers who are interested in group drum circles and jams, workshops, classes, and trying out some different drums and rhythms.

* At most of the drum events we will have extra drums available for those who don't have a drum yet, but please let us know ahead of time if you'll be needing one.
* If your drum needs tuning, or major help, we can steer you in the right direction.

This is a great place to get info on drums, and to find out about other cool drum-related happenings around the Milwaukee area (we also post some information about certain events located farther away as well (e.g. Madison and Illinois)).

Please email the organizer (Kristie) if you have questions.
