As some of you know, we have started a Drum Circle in Jacksonville.
We were looking for something fun and different to do and a drum circle came up in the conversation.
And now some of you will be saying “what is a Drum Circle?” A drum circle is just a bunch of folks getting together and playing drums. Mostly hand drums, and just having a good time.
I had seen the large on in Asheville several times and thought it would be a blast to be part of one… so we did it!
Our first time was a great success and we had as many as 25 people playing at one time. The downtown area of Jacksonville has not heard that kind of noise since the native people lived here.
Well, not being able to leave well enough alone… I decided the 4 inch cow bell was not good, nor loud, enough. And, as some of you, you cannot have enough cow bell.
So, being that I am a metal worker…I made a bigger one!
And those of you who know me know, I could not just make a regular one. It had to be some kind of funky design.
So here you go;
It is kind of big… like 20 inches… and makes a lot of noise.
Maybe not great for the orchestra, but for the drum circle… perfect.
So if you would like to give it a try, follow us on twitter at
(because we are going to move out location each time)
And we soon will have a Facebook page… I’m just too busy making important changes to the orchestral instrument supply to get it done right now.
