USA Drum Circle Finder + Listings by

Hello drummers! This is the place to find both freestyle and facilitated drum circles near you. A human edited databse of listings free of charge since 1999. Also check the bottom of the page for the FaceBook "Drum Circle Finder" page, The "Drum Circle Locator" FaceBook group where you can post your drum circle events in real time, and lots more stuff below the listings. This page was last updated May 2021.

With Covid 19 most of the even well established drum circles are on hold for now. Some are starting up again, most with social distancing & masks, or, they have moved to online, or both. Things like Zoom, FaceTime, & Skype. For now, it's best to contact the host by email, or the group contact of a circle you might want to attend. Slowly but surely, drum circles are starting to come back. We will recover, and drumming can help us. Some good news. I'm getting weekly updates from around the world of many circles are starting back up, most with masks & social distancing.

Click on the state you are interested in, & it will jump to it on this page. Or, scroll down a little, find the state you live in, and see what's going on around you. Scroll down a bit for the link to drum circles in all other countries. Also check the bottom of the page for some other drum circle directories, and ways to promote them. Facebook, etc. To add new drum circles or edits to existing ones, please scroll down a little for my contact information. Many thanks to people from all the cities & states that have helped me in their cities over the years.

Citrus County Drum Circle is back! The Second Sunday Sunset Drum Circle! We are starting back after a year's absence due to Covid 19, our Second Sunday Sunset Drum Circle on Sunday afternoon April 11 at 6 PM. Mark your calenders now for future events. DC was at 6PM every second Sunday through Sept. We obtained our permit a week or two ago for this DC so we are legit with the county. The drum circle will last approximately two hours as usual. The county closes the park at dark so we need to be out of there by then or shortly thereafter. We respect and follow the county's rules in order to be able to keep our venue at the beach, which we almost lost a few years ago! 8 miles west of Crystal River on Ft. Island Trail road near a beach shelter just before the end of the road.

A drummer requested that we check with the county upon starting back up after the worst of Covid has passed, to see if we could hold the DC on Saturdays. Meantime Betty polled some of the FB group, and got only three who preferred Saturdays with around 30 who responded positive for Sundays. Actually, that was a good thing, we were glad most folks wanted to continue it on Sundays. We decided to keep it the Second Sunday since we have done that for 13 years and we had to go with the Sundays anyway. Charlotte Email for questions, keyccrazy(at) Betty has put it out there on FaceBook under Citrus County Drummers already that the date of our first DC was on Sunday, April 11 at 6PM and to save the date and watch for more to follow. She has quite a large number of people who have joined that group.

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. Coconuts Drum Circle Page

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.

How to add your weekly or monthly drum circle to the Drum Circle Finder

If you want 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.

You can also post it on the FaceBook group: "Drum Circle Locator" and I will add it from there.

At my home page I offer my 2 drum circle rhythms CD's for $10, 2 hour rhythms DVD for $10, and my 300 page book, "A Practical Guide To Hand Drumming And Drum Circles" is $8 on Amazon Kindle. My DVD is also on Amazon for a few bucks more. (The Instant Video as well.) I also teach hand drumming 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 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, expenses, & this site.

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.
