Hey there,

This Saturday October 15th don’t miss the Virginia Key Full moon Drum circle. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, the full moon was last Monday/Tuesday, but nevertheless this is a great opportunity to get to play with your fellow drummers in the beautiful Virginia Key park. It starts at 7 PM.

The latest notices I got it says that parking is $5, it used to be free for drummers, I’d check out and post later on.
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.

Hello there!
I hope you’re ready since there are many interesting things to do this weekend, be aware of the scorching temperatures we’re experience here in South Florida. Some of this weekend activities are outdoors, so taking solar protection and enough water and hydration is always a good thing.

Seating will be provided and there will be a few extra drums on a first come, first serve basis. There are many activities to do at the Fairchild, here is the event’s schedule. There is an entrance fee to get into Fairchild, so you might consider staying for all the activities.

Then, you might want to experience an alternative type of  drumming, Buddy Helm is teaching this weekend only his very special Healing and meditation class. You might remember Buddy from the Paralaounge videos, see his drumming class video.
