Drum Circle has 4 intentions:
Explore Your Inner Rhythm. A drum circle allows you to do this in a nonjudgmental environment with friendly people.
Promote Community. We learn that by listening to each other, each person has something to contribute, and we all enjoy the collective rhythm produced.
Increase Health and Wellness. Drumming not only helps reduce stress we’ve built up during the day, it also helps us connect with our mind, body and spirit, and helps create a balance.
Drums are provided for those who don’t have one.

Kenny Wayne is a throwback to the golden age of classic rhythm and blues. Born in Spokane and raised in New Orleans, his powerful music recalls the era when piano players like Fats Domino and Amos Milburn and Bill Doggett worked the chitlin’ circuit on the “strolls” in dozens of American cities. As a one-man cheering section for the days when blues and small jazz bands met the roots of rock and roll, Wayne is unapologetic about the music he plays.
Born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, Sherman’s natural ear for music began developing at an early age. He left home at fifteen with a harmonica and a twenty dollar bill in his pocket, bound for Vancouver. It was there that he discovered the Chicago blues style on an album featuring Muddy Waters, Junior Wells and James Cotton. By seventeen, he had developed a style of playing greatly influenced by the late great Paul Butterfield. Sherman has had the great privilege of sharing the stage with legendary players such as John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, Sony Land Slim, Pinetop Perkins, Jim Byrnes and Long John Baldry.
