For the past 25 years we have been offering drum circles for corporate teambuilding events, schools, libraries, festivals, conferences, special needs groups, youth detention centers and senior facilities all over the USA.
We use our drums as the vehicle to transport a group of people to a place of stronger community and to foster a deeper connection with each other. Our mission is to facilitate teamwork, respect, and the understanding that together we can create more!
YOU make the drum!
Create your own personalized artwork! Sand, paint and customize your drum shell, then tie-dye and attach a real goat skin head using traditional methods - a real quality musical instrument that sounds great and will keep giving back for years!
Stand Up, Speak Up combines the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with live drumming by Paul Gavin to expose audiences to the important calls to action that Dr. King proclaimed during the civil rights movement. After being introduced to Dr. King, audiences will watch his speeches and hear a number of his most powerful quotes, accompanied by the drums live. Afterward, the real magic happens where Paul leads an interactive discussion about MLK’s ideas as they apply today.
