Big September Drum-Circle Party Homage Grand Opening Fun

This month’s drum circle will be special.  They all are, of course, but this one is extra-special, for lots of extra reasons.

It rained.

We want to remember our friend Thom.  We missed the big community wake last week and we can’t let his passing go without paying homage.  Thom was a sweet presence.  He showed up, right in front early and often, at every drum circle we can remember.  We will miss him sorely.  For a picture of Thom just as we remember him, by Richard Quick, check here:

In true Eureka spirit, we’ll want to make this a BIG party.  So we’re also going to answer the call of our fellow friend and drumhead Caleb Bomar — and make our September drum circle a combination event with the —

  1. Angelo or Caleb,

    This is Skewb from Kc Mo. I’ve got a weekly drum circle in Kansas City, every Monday from 7-10pm. Turnouts are a couple hundred every week. Wanna gather and jam? there’s a local festival on first sat of sept, so that may be out, but we’ll see. Otherwise, I could get 2-3 sets of dununs and perhaps 10 djembes to come down in october. I really wanna join y’all for the shindig in sept, just gotta convince my girl that this might be a better time!
    Please do me a favor! Look us up………….google “kansas city drum tribe”. We play middle-eastern fusion with Keita’s style for the low-end. A couple of hot dog soloists coming over tone-rich djembe support. Main influences: Fela Kuti, f

  2. I feel that we shall have a few drummers headed yer way for this shin-dig. At least one set of dununs and perhaps 5 djembes. There m[ be a trombone or violin joining us as well. By chance, do you know of anyone willing to let a few hippie drummers crash on their floor/couch?
    Please contact me when you can!
