Coconut Groove Drum circle this weekend and Wet Full moon Miami Beach
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.
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’.
Hollywood Drum circle, this weekend.

Belly-Dancers welcome! Wheel-Chair accesible ramp on Tower! Free Parking!
We will be jamming in a beautiful breezy setting right by the water in an absolutely gorgeous park! We may most likely be intriguing the boaters passing by:)

– Any snacks, munchables, or drinks to share (not an obligation). There will be a table.
– Your Positive Energy and Smiles!
Kids are totally welcome; but the location is on an unsupervised deepwater shoreline with easy access to the water’s edge. Some parents have found that the need to watch over their kid took them away from the drumming.

Broward Drum Circle
at Fern Forest Nature Center
in Coconut Creek – Broward County has some of the best drummers in South Florida, and this is the best place to find them on a Saturday afternoon. The site is sheltered, so the circle rocks even in a downpour. I come up from Miami, and it’s always
worth the trip.

2-ish till 6-ish – free
Oak Grove Park
Drum Circle at 159 St & NE 6 Ave in Miami, across the lake from the parking lot & playground. This is a young circle with a distinctly Haitian flavor. There are more good (really good) drummers than there are drums, so bring extras if you have them. There is some seating; but you may want to bring your own. If you want to bring kids, the playground is great (LOTS of kids – all playing very seriously); but it is across the lake from the drum circle, so if you feel that you have to be right next to your kids when they play you may not be comfortable.Also notice th “ish” on the times. I have arrived a couple of time and not heard any drumming; but as soon as I start warming up, a group materializes (as if they were just waiting for me – made me feel quite special).
