Open drum circle. April 6, 2019. 7:00 pm at the Bob Chisholm Community Center in Seaside Oregon. 1225 Avenue ‘A’, Seaside. Kick in a $10.00 donation to cover renting the venue. The location is wonderful. The Community Center has undergone a remodel to look like a long house. The drums sound great in this space. The lighting is perfect. Our goal is to drum indoors when it is nasty outside, and when it is nice, take advantage of our location where the Pacific Ocean licks the face of Northern Oregon and head to the beach. In April 2019 we think the weather will still be a bit cold so are shooting for an indoor event.
If you are trying to find the Community Center it is on Avenue A behind Safeway.
Everyone at the first gathering of the Whale Spirit Drum Circle received a drum charm. The charm is meant to keep the spirit of the drum circle in the drum in between gatherings of the Whale Spirit Drum Circle. Though a few people attached the charm their key rings to remind themselves to come to the next drum circle. (The Whale Spirit Drum Circle meets on the first Saturday of every month at 7:00 am at the Bob Chisholm Community Center in Seaside Oregon or at “The turnaround” where Broadway hits the Pacific Ocean in Seaside OR.)
The first gathering of the Whale Spirit Drum Circle in Seaside Oregon was a success. 20 people from all over the region came to this community drum circle held in the Bob Chisholm Community Center in Seaside Oregon on March 2, 2019. We had traditional djembes from Africa, modern drum circle djembes, elk hide frame drums, modern frame drums, a congaand even a bucket drum. Experience levels ranged from experienced musicians to first-timers. Over half the group met to “debrief” at the Seaside Brewery afterward. All said they would return. The Whale Spirit Drum Circle meets the first Saturday of the month at either the Bob Chisholm Community Center in Seaside Oregon or “at the turnaround” where Broadway ends at the Pacific Ocean in Seaside OR. The weather picks our location for us.
