Drum circle – Southampton Town article and South Florida drum events

East Hampton drum circle

I came across this interesting article from the East Hampton Star online edition, apparently drum circle gatherings are not only problematic in this part of the country but over there as well.
I’ve collected a couple of quotes that I’d like to post here, and I’d love you to leave me a comment with your opinion:

He said he had known for some time that the beach was being used for drumming. “It’s allowed to go on between 6 to 9 without permits. It’s not amplified music. It has not required permits. It was not a problem.”
“What happened last night was a lot of people, open fires, alcohol. It was a huge crowd, not boisterous and out of control, but I can’t condone it.”
Informed by the town police that he would need a permit, he said on Tuesday, “this is not an event — it’s just 15 to 20 drummers meeting up on the beach playing acoustical instruments.”

I got the remainder for this weekend Oak Park drum circle:
Oak Grove Park Drum Circle Sunday August 24, 2008 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm –  690 NE 159 Street Miami, FL
FREE EVENT. This is a young circle with a distinctly Haitian flavor. Come ready to pick up some sweet island grooves. The circle does not take place in exactly the same place in the park every week; but it’s not a big place. Just look around for Penny or Haiti Blues. 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.

Also this Saturday and Monday at the African Heritage center at Liberty town:
If you know Kuku, djole you’re welcome to join the drum activities. There’s also a dance class Saturday 26 at 3 Pm 6161 NW 22nd Ave Miami, FL 33142 (305) 638-6771

breaking news:
