SPIRITED DRUMMING at Croton-Point-Park

We are excited to again Drum at Croton-Point-Park!
Our June circle had 20 plus drummers ranging in age from 3 to 84. Bring any percussion instrument, some will be available, and bring your drumming spirit. We meet at the large gazebo on the river side of the last parking lot. Bring a chair. There is a $10 parking fee for the park.
The third Spirited Drumming at Croton-Point-Park will be great with you. Join Us.
Keep Drumming!

    We have 6 folks confirmed for next week, and 4 are first timers :) Lorraine called and said she is not going to be able to make it in August, but how about everyone else ? Please keep in mind that MORE drummers promote more drummers.

    Did anyone happen to pick up a small Djembe at our last get together (its bright multi-colored and made by TOCA) ? I may have left it behind, and just went looking for it and realized its not in my trunk.

      found it buried under a beach towel .. :)

      Hi Ann! That's the barn you told me about! Already have Saturday plans, or I would have joined you there. Next time. Have fun. :)

      Lorraine: Plans, schmanz. Break 'em! Teasing you here--sorta--but the circle and setting at Sticks & Stones is really special, esp. during the summertime. Can Google their website to get more info.

      Alternatively, the same instructor is holding a more conventional circle on Friday 07/18 from 7-9 pm in Milford, CT. Drums/didge/dancers/flut­e/occasional sax and the odd hooper. Know that's a long drive for people from NY, but it's an option.

    Hi. In case anyone is interested in trekking to CT this weekend to drum, there's an excellent circle that I really recommend. Held in a funky barn waaay out in the woods. Smallish group, not super-loud. Drumming Fundamentals & Jam
    Sat 07/19, 7-9 pm
    Sticks & Stones Farm
    201 Huntingtown Road
    Newtown, CT 06470
    $15

    Instructor Mark Zarrillo says: "A hybrid of a drum class/drum circle. Explore traditional West African rhythms while learning how to play, listen & create together. Then put what we learned into practice and see where we can go!"

    Sorry for the long post! Brevity is clearly not my strongest trait, haha. Just wanted to share something a bit different. Glad to answer any questions you might have. RT

    Fantastic circle. The day was great and the drumming was better along the Hudson River. The following is a short video of our drumming. Join us next time. (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10204306777457947&fref=nf)

      Did anyone get a chance to see/hear the video?

      July 14, 2014

    • Lorraine

      So sorry I missed the circle this month. Tried viewing the video, but it wouldn't come up. I like the every 3 weeks idea!

      July 15, 2014

  • Frank T.

    Excellent time today folks !! Jeff, try and post that link and a few pix of you got em. We only have a few more months of warm weather left so let us know if you guys want to do it once every 3 weeks so that we can squeeze an extra one in there.

      Frank. A friend asked if we could play drums on a beach in Lincolndale with a Bonfire. I'll get more info and try to plan a drum circle there.

      July 13, 2014

    • Frank T.

      ooh, a show ! Cool.

      July 13, 2014

  • Jeffrey P.

    Looks like the rain will hold off (at least according to weather.com). So lets give it a whirl !! See you all soon.

    If anyone wants to split the cost of getting into the park I can drive in...I'll wait in the train station parking lot at 3:50 - I've got a large, blue, GMC Suburban - you can't miss it.

    Any thoughts about if it rains today?

    July 13, 2014

  • Frank T.

    Lets keep an eye on the weather as rain is expected by 4pm . While tether is a covered gazebo there, it will likely be occupied by those who rented it. Please check back here at 3pm and we will make a "game time " decision.

    July 13, 2014

  • Paqo

    This is my first time attending. Are there specific instructions on getting to Croton-Point-Park parking area?

    July 12, 2014

    • Frank T.

      Just follow GPS to The park. When you go through the entrance and pay the $10 parking fee just keep straight and go to the furthest parking lot , then hang a left and make your way to the giant gazebo. It is likely there will be people there , but that is where we will meet. Remberb to bring a chair to sit on.

      July 12, 2014

  • Frank T.

    Just to be sure everyone read the detail in Jeff's event post . The Gazebo is occupied on July 13 (by someone else), so we will likely have to find an alternate spot. Please bring a chair or something to sit on (a crate?) . Also, my cell phone is (914)[masked], if you arrive and cannot locate us.
