Drum/Dance at Cathedral Park in St. Johns (with Potluck)

6:00 -- 7:00 pm: picnic 'n potluck

7:00 -- 9:00 pm: regular drum/dance circle

PLEASE NOTE:- This is an OUTDOOR event at Cathedral Park in St. Johns. Go towards the water from N. Pittsburg Ave and N. Edison Ave; you'll see us under the overhead bridge on your right. Park on Pittsburg. There's also a parking lot close by. Here's the map.

 

Greetings movers, shakers 'n all ye rhythm-makers!

Bring your drum
And your restless feet
As one we become
Hearts shall open and meet

Tap your fingers
And sway to the beat
As the rhythm rises and lingers
Together we feel more complete

Come alone or bring your friends. You don't have to be a drummer to come; come just to watch or listen. And if you're a drummer, all skill levels are welcome. And feel free to bring other acoustic instruments -- didjridoo, flute, guitar, harmonica, whatever.

Microphones and PA will be available for people who would like to sing or for use with other soft instruments.  We will also have a few 'Toyboxes' full of other percussive noise-toys and some extra drums for sharing.  If you have extra instruments to share, please bring them.

As for dancing, you DO NOT need to be a trained dancer (although we do have those from time to time) to get up and move to the beat. As long as YOU are having fun dancing, anything goes.

It's great to see the drummers, didj players, and dancers all playing off of each other.

Don't be a spectator, PARTICIPATE. YOU are the show!

KIDS ARE MOST WELCOME!!

Please support us with a suggested donation of $2.00.

POTLUCK: If you're joining us for potluck (at 6pm), please bring a dish that'll feed about 5 people. More is not necessary. Don't worry about the RSVP count.

Love and Light,

    It was so powerful with my feet sunk deep into the sandy beach to be cleansed by the primal beats.

    I'm sorry I won't be able to attend this particular drum circle, especially in this park. My wife and I got married in this park 14 years ago, so it has special meaning to us. Have fun everyone!

    Hi folks! Hope you're looking forward to jamming at Cathedral Park as much as I am. If you plan to join us for potluck, it starts at 6pm. Bring something that'll feed about 4 people. No need to bring disposable dishware, we'll have plenty of stainless steel bowls and silverware.
