- 4:00 pm Big Drum Club: Meet at the main Drum Circle. We will discuss the “Responsibility” of playing the Biggest Drums. We will experiment with placement in the drum circle. We will experiment with basic, but powerful rhythms. Djembe players are invited to play during certain points of the “experiment”. The over all purpose of this time is to help the “Bottom End” of the groove strengthen and help everyone get a more educated opinion on placement of instruments and responsibility of controlling the “Tempo”. This is being labeled an “Experiment” because we are blessed to have an abundance of educated players. Everyone’s opinion will be taken seriously and nobody will be recognized as the over all authority on the subject. This is an open study of the Paralounge Group Dynamics to make players more familiar with each other and to help the All Night Drum Circle work at its highest potential.
