Monday night drumming circles

Montreal

Attention drummers and potential drummers!!!!!

I finally got a chance to check out an open drumming circle that takes place in Pointe St-Charles on Monday nights, so I thought I'd pass along the info for anybody who's interested.

The group is volunteer-run and is free (I can't remember the name of the organizer).

It welcomes people of all levels of experience, from none to experienced. If you have you own drum, rattle or other percussion instrument, bring it (them) along... but this evening there were a whole bunch of spare drums of different sizes and stuff that the organizer brings with him, and anyone is free to use them. SO if you're new and don't have a drum, don't sweat it.

The group seems more French than English, but it might just have been the evening.

Okay - details:

When:
Every Monday night from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.

Where:
Cafe Paradoxe / Pointe St-Charles YMCA
255 rue Ash
Tel: 514 931-5204

I think this evening was the last one for the year, and the group will start up again in January.

Cafe Paradoxe, by the way, is a non-profit community initiative to help young adults (18-35) get exposure to the sound production and producing shows etc...

They do all sorts of neat stuff. I think it is also some sort of job re-integration thing too.

Anyway, that's it.
