Happy Miami drumming for 2014

Hello everyone,
It has been a while from last post. Miami Drums had entered a hiatus mode for the last couple months which we’re trying to recover from. Hopefully you never stopped drumming.
There is an update on Delou’s on going classes schedule for 2014. They are hosting Wednesday classes until January 15th at the Little Haiti cultural center:

Coconut Groove Drum circle this weekend and Wet Full moon Miami Beach

Hello there,
Pretty sure you have noticed how the weather has been treating us in the last couple of weeks. Tomorrow, if weather allows, the Coconut Groove drum circle continues its expansion into more drums and music. They’re going back to their previous location at the Mayfair promenade. Be sure to check miamidrums.com drum page and check it out.

Also,
This time around the Full moon comes in the middle of the week – June Monday 4th – some people plan to go to the beach this weekend instead – watch out for some showers, or perhaps wait until the end of the week (The moon would still be bright and high up in the sky for a nice drum circle)
Regardless of what you choose, don’t forget to keep playing and enjoy.

All the best to ya’.

Be advised that showers and thunderstorms are expected for most of Saturday, so if weather is bad, don’t hesitate to go down there, the cover pavilion has serves well under bad weather conditions.

This is a Drug Free, Alcohol Free, Smoke Free event.
