Rhythm Revolution

Flatts and Sharpe, along with the Chicago Park District, is proud to sponsor "Rhythm Revolution" made possible by drum circle guru John Yost. Cast loose your inner tribal god/goddess, relieve stress, release feel good chemicals in your brain (the natural way), and sense the connection to your fellow human being.

We invite amateurs, professionals, and people with absolutely zero experience to participate in the upcoming drum circle at the sculpture of Pratt Beach in Roger's Park on July 22, 2011. Feel the open breeze, see the vast water of Lake Michigan extend across the earth in the distance, and explore the feeling of harmony only a drum circle could provide.

Drum circles aren't just for hippies. They are for senior citizens, the young, the lower class, middle class, the upper class, and for every race. The human race. Through rhythm, drum circles promote a sense of unity in a modern world that makes us feel more and more separate. Creating rhythm in a communal setting optimizes listening and communicating between individuals and promotes a sense of equality. Everyone is an integral part to facilitating the three dimensional sound only a drum circle could produce.

Bring your drum, shakers, boomwhack, or just a piece of wood and a stick. Or if you don't have any percussion instrument, stop by the store. We have bongos, cowbells, shakers, tambourines, and several other percussion instruments available. Oh, and bring a chair to the event if you want a place to sit!

Save the date! July 22, 2011. The event starts at 7:30 PM until 9:30 PM. Be apart of the "Rhythm Revolution."
