    The feeling of the energy exchange between the runners/walkers is a phenomenal feeling that I will never forget. Props to all my fellow drummers for making that corner hop!

    The drumming at the Race for the Cure was fantastic! We had a solid group of drummers turn out. The runners and walkers appreciated our efforts and many danced to the beat. Runners joined in playing drums and there were plenty of dancers! Thanks to Loki, Grayson, Charlie, Isaac, Jana, Melissa, and Michael.

    Hi Everyone! I have posted some more rythms on the site that we often jam on during the Race for the Cure. If you go to the "More" section of the Group's Meetup Home page and look under Files you will find the Bembe, Danza, Dawr Hindi, and Island Groove. I have also posted a Drum Stroke Notation guide to read the notation sheets for the Djembe and Doumbek.

    Hi Everyone! I have posted some rythmns on the site. If you go to the "More" section of the Groups Meetup Home page you will find 4 rythm pdf file wiht multiple parts including Fanga, Kpanlogo, Baladdi, and Saba. These are some of the rythms that we jam on during the Race for the Cure. The format is pretty easy to read and understand. Also take a look at note accompanying the rythm sheet where I point out which parts are the essential ones to get the rythm going. I will post more next week.

    In the past 14 years or so Charlie and I have been doing this, we have not needed parking passes. If you get there at 7:30AM or earlier, you can usually find a spot near the location and it is not hard to exit DC from this location after the race. Bring quarters!
