What is                   a Drum Circle?

Imagine an interactive and inclusive event where no experience is needed and everyone has fun!  

Drum circles use the power of rhythm to connect people and enrich spirit. Participants in the circle play a variety of instruments creating parts that support and connect to each other.  As the parts connect, so do the people.

The purpose is not to learn to play a drum.

The purpose is to use rhythm to create a dynamic connection.

A fun and effective tradition for thousands of years: Rhythm used to connect, communicate and enhance a sense of personal control, dignity and well-being and have lots of fun!  

 

    CREATIVE  Drum circle participants play drums and percussion instruments communicating and connecting with each other while creating and sharing a dynamic experience. No musical experience is needed. Instruments provided.

Deke Kincade is one of those rare individuals who is able to combine strong musicality as a performing musician with the ability to facilitate others to find their own power within the drum. His warmth and genuineness as a person set the bar high for all who gather around him.
