(Please scroll down for my other double album set “Wild Drum Circles”.)

Each CD from both double albums are jammed to the brim, over 78 minutes on each CD. There’s over two and a half hours total in all to listen to. All separate tracks about 8 minutes each. Plenty of time so you can relax, and settle into a good groove.

It’s kind of hard to get decent sounding drum circle recordings. Many of them come out sounding mushy, one sided, or with background noise. On the other hand, the overly orchestrated ones done in recording studios can be a bit stale, and don’t have that organic sound we create just out there making music.

You can listen to about a dozen full length drum circle jam tracks from both double albums at my SoundCloud page:

These live recordings came out great. They are clear and clean sounding because we were able to use 4 microphones and a soundboard. They were recorded at live concert venues with good acoustics. Just like at regular drum circles, we start out different rhythms from various cultures and away it goes.

You can hear a few mistakes here and there but that’s how drum circles go. On the other hand, the beautiful nuances of the Native American wood flutes, and Australian didgeridoos were lead instruments on a few pieces, because we were able to mic them up and hear them.

The drum circle music varies from grooving, meditative, and passionate, right on up to riveting, and rocking. They’re some of the most enjoyable drum circle musical pieces I have ever participated in, in my life, and I’ve been attending drum circles for over 30 years now. They are from drum circles I hosted around the state of Florida. You will hear some drummers doing call & response, amazing solo’s and lots more going on. You can hear & feel how much fun, & excitement everyone is having.

I hope you enjoy listening to these as much as we did making them. We weren’t playing for a crowd, just playing for ourselves. When you play with a group of musicians every week for a few years, you develop a musical bond. So this was done with a LOT of help from my friends. They all volunteered when I asked to record a few nights.


It is $10 for the 2 CD set, USA shipping is $2.50, making the grand total – $12.50 – A pretty fair price.

Here’s my other 2 CD set, “Wild Drum Circles”.

Listen to a few tracks, I think you’ll like them.

wild drum circles 2


There are 23 separate tracks on these 2 CDs, each one about 7 minutes long, plenty of time to relax, and get into it. Over 2 and 1/2 hours of drum circle jamming in all.

Everything from Hip Hop, Freestyle, African, Taiko, Belly Dancing, Native American – to spoken word, and a bunch more drum circle fun.

But there is lots of serious djembe and doumbek playing on here. Not to mention some amazing didgeridoo, flute playing, chanting, singing, crazy instruments, and a little comedic hilarity for good measure. You can hear how much fun we were having creating music with musicians from all different paths, cultures, and walks of life.

I hope you enjoy all the amazing jamming, grooving, dancing, craziness, spontaneous self expression, and variety that went into these wild drum circle jams. I started them out, and the magic just happened. This set is a little wilder, hence the title.

Hand drumming, and going to drum circles can be life changing for you. Whenever you are feeling troubled, you can always turn to your drum. When you want something fun to do for entertainment, a drum circle is great for that as well. Because when you drum, all you think about is drumming. Drumming helps to heal your mind, body, and spirit. It even helps people socially. Having the belly dancers out there helped a little bit also. We had local bellydance teachers that brought their class out for “field trips”. That works for everyone.


To order the 2 CD set of Wild Drum Circles, it’s $10 + $2 shipping anywhere in the USA. To all other countries it’s $2 extra. Please use the second button below this one.
