Hello Drummers & Drum Circle Hunters! Find both freestyle & facilitated drum circles near you. Last updated August 2014
For phones, check my other drum circle finder page, both are updated about the same time. It's drumcircleworld.com
Or, scroll down a little, pick the state you live in, and see what's going on around you. Also check the bottom of the
page for some other drum circle directories. Many of the circles have a MeetUp, FaceBook page, or website for them now.
All of these are correct to the best of my knowledge, & they are updated monthly. If you know of a change, or a correction, email me
so I can include it. (Please none with fees of over $15) You can also add one time drumming events at the FaceBook page at the bottom.
Most of these drum circles are well established, but new ones are constantly being added to the page, and some unfortunately come
to an end. I'm not always notified when they do, so it's a good idea to check the individual contact information before going.
Drum Circle Lovers Rhythms DVD & Free Drum Circle CD $15
Times are hard for those of us in the arts. To give you a good value for your money, I include a free drum circle jam CD with orders of
my 2 hour DVD "101 Drum Circle Rhythms" here at my website. It's over 70 minutes of drum circle action. You get both disks for $15. The
proceeds from my DVD & Kindle book, help me to fund work in our community, & this site. Thanks kindly in advance for helping out.
I've been maintaining and updating this list for about 12 years now. I've tried to make it as user friendly as possible. I just want to help get
the word out where drum circles are. Hopefully there is one near you to check out, or if you travel somewhere, it will help you find one.
You don't need to register, give out your email address, or anything like that. Just trying to put some good out in the world.
I try my best to make this the most complete, and up to date drum circle list on the web, and thanks for all the help and kind comments
I've received. I appreciate that very much. Drumming and dancing bring people together. I think we need that now more than ever. Drumming
is cheaper than therapy! Please help support us picking up my Drum Circle Rhythms DVD, CDs, or my 300 page book, "A Practical Guide To
Hand Drumming And Drum Circles". Here's the link to the book: A Practical Guide To Hand Drumming And Drum Circles Book Link
If you'd like to link to my drum circle finder, that's fine. I would appreciate a brief mention of my website in return.
That's all I ask. Please don't copy and paste this work on to another website. Also visit "Drum Circle Finder" on FaceBook.

*note* Coconuts Clearwater Drum Circle on Gulf to Bay ended. Another casulty of the economy it seems.
We celebrated many holidays & special events there, and some beautiful things happened like the birth of a child
"Gabriela Gaia" by two in our group who fell in love at our drum circle. That's kind of romantic, don't you think?
But sometimes sad things have to be addressed on drum circle night. A musician friend of ours suddenly passed away,
so we held a drum circle wake there in memory of him. There is a tribute page for him, so I wanted to leave this up.

“Whether you follow a Pagan, African, Native American, Hindu, other ancient Path, or no particular path at all,
join others in an experience of communal drumming (with and withiout chant). It can be beneficial emotionally,
physically and spiritually!” No experience is necessary. All you need to have is a percussion instrument
(you can drum on almost anything!) and the desire to have fun! You can also bring bells, shakers, rattles,
or wind instruments if you like. If you would like to lead a chant for us to drum to, let us know.

This drum circle finder is a free service to the drumming and dancing community.
It was established in 1999, back in the days of the free websites, Lycos, Excite, Geocities, Webtv, etc.
Thanks kindly for all the help, and support from everyone over the years. I really appreciate it.
Pick up one of the drum circle jams from CDBaby or itunes if you can. Every little bit helps.
Since you scrolled all the way down this far, here's a couple free drum circle jam mp3s.
Put them in your mp3 player, iPod & enjoy. There's 7 more free drum circle jam mp3's and
some djembe drum ringtones located at the link just below this download. No strings attached!)
I hope the drum circle finder helped you to locate a drum circle in your area. Again, if you know of an ongoing weekly,
or monthly drum circle that's not listed, please email me, or add it to the FaceBook Drum Circle Finder page, and let
me know, so I can add it in for the benefit of others. This global drum circle directory is updated regularly.
Thanks for your support, comments, and kind words over the years.
To add your weekly or monthly drum circle to the Drum Circle Finder
If you would like to add your drum circle to the list, just email the particulars to me with a brief description & I
will add it in here on the next update. I respect your privacy, & I never give email addresses out to anyone. Thanks.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (or use the link below.)
At my home page drumcircles.net I offer my 2 drum circle rhythms CD's for $10, 2 hour rhythms DVD for $15,
and my 300 page book, "A Practical Guide To Hand Drumming And Drum Circles" ($17.95 with a free facilitated
drum circle jam CD) I also teach hand drumming in person, and online to children and adults. Locally I work
with a variety of groups, and I facilitate drum circles around the Saint Louis area. I do some charity work
for a number of worthwhile organizations. There's a little wear and tear on the drums & percussion I provide.
The proceeds from the sales of my drumming CD's, DVD's, and drum circle book help me to fund work in our community.
I try to offer them at as reasonable a cost as possible. As an independent artist, funds are always tight, so I
always appreciate a product that is a good value for the money. That's the idea behind my book, CD's & DVD.
Helping fellow musicians. Thanks in advance for helping us out with repairs, and expenses.
Sometimes the drum circle Meetup map doesn't function, so paste in the link and enter the area you live in.
The link to the meetup drum circle directory is drumcircle.meetup.com/ Enter your city in the search and see
what drum circle meetup's are going on near you, or maybe even get one started. It's a great way to get the
word out locally, & promote your circle. FaceBook, & Yahoo Groups as well. Try a Google search with the keywords,
"drum circle" "Yahoo group" and the "city" you live near. If you're on FaceBook, try it here also.

Did you hear about the drummer who kept getting fired for keeping bad time?...
He became so depressed, that he went to the railroad tracks and threw himself behind a train. Ha!
Check out the huge list of drummer jokes:
Need Some Free Drum Circle Opinions, or some advice? Just ask, I'm happy to try and help.
If you need some advice, suggestions, ideas, or anything at all about hosting any form of drum circle,
I am more than happy to try and help you along. Even if you arn't sure what kind of drum might be right
for you, or your group, just email me and I will try to help you out. I don't actually sell drums, but
I do have years of experience with most major brands, styles, and retailers. I can suggest the places
I buy mine from. If you are wanting to host or facilitate drum circles, this art form has evolved a lot
in the last 10 years alone. Art can be very subjective. There used to be only 1 or 2 widely accepted ways
to facilitate drum circles. Now there are dozens of styles all around the country, and around the world.
look at the way MMA (mixed martial arts) has evolved. It used to be if you were proficient at Judo, Karate, wrestling,
or some other disipline, just being an expert at one style left most at a disadvantage. The ones who are the most
well rounded in all the different styles do the best now in mixed martial arts. And drum circle facilitation is similar in
this way. We have all these different cultures that each have their own style of drumming, and ways of group drumming.
So in my opinion, the way to become the best, is to try and learn from as many facilitators as possible. (Not just one)
And also learn as many cultural styles as possible, so you can be more well rounded in your skills, and work with any
group under any circumstances. Try to study, or study with as many professionals as you can. The learning process should
never end, because we are in an ever evolving field. Your style that you develop can be uniquly yours, a combination of
the best of all of them. It takes a lot of work to be a good facilitator that understands group dynamics, and musicality.
Check out part 2 of my drum circle rhythms in this YouTube video. Please keep in mind that this is only 7 minutes from my 2 hour DVD.
The DVD title is 101 Drum Circle Rhythms. Actually, there is 120 of them, but who's counting. I hope you enjoy one or two, and these
help to get you in the groove. On the DVD there are lots of fun ethnic drum beats from around the world to explore, have fun with,
& make them your own. Over 2 hours of them will keep you in the drumming mood for a long time. Each rhythm is about a minute long.
Here's a few live drum circle mp3s
These tracks, and lots more of my drum circle music is available at CDBaby iTunes Amazon and most mp3 retailers.
CDBaby.com has 2.5 hours of mp3s you can download for $10. (Costs slightly more at other retailers.)
