Miami drum circle this weekend – Sunday 11th
Community Drum Circle @ Oak Grove Park
Starts about 3:30 until 6:30 – FREE 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. Come ready to pick up some sweet island grooves. 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 .
Announcing Memorial Day Drum Circle – Monday 5/26
Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami @ 2PM till whenever, probably near the south end of the park. The Carribean music festival will have taken place the day before and there are no events scheduled there on Memorial Day (except for Yoga in the Park at 6PM – don’t think they’ll mind). There’s a playground there and the breeze off the bay. There are palms by the water and there are several covered structures that may be available. You really do need to bring your own seating for this one. Extra drums may be available.
Thanks Mark for the info!
Changing location to Legion Park 6447 NE 7 Street
– just east of Biscayne Blvd.
I love this change since downtown is always a hassle!!!
See you guys this Sunday and next monday 🙂

Broward Drum Circle
4-6PM 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.
Drum class with Matthew Hill – 2 PM at FIU Biscayne Campus Academic 2 Bldg, North Miami ,FL
in the second floor studio – $10
Sunday Drum circle @ Oak Grove Park, North Miami, FL
Drum Circle 3-ish till 6-ish – FREE 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 times and not heard any drumming; but as soon as the drumming starts, the group materializes.
