I only had a chance to meet everyone briefly on the beach during rehearsal, but it seemed they had good intentions and big hearts.

The drum circle is not only musically entertaining, it is spiritually, physically, and mentally uplifting. I hand out flyers, distribute instruments, and show people how to play them. It is fun and exciting.
