Logistics Checklist for Your Next Drum Circle
Getting a drum circle together for the first time is exciting!
Your friends, family and maybe even people you don’t know will be showing up to get their groove on.
Making your event sustainable and enjoyable for everyone (including you) requires some logistics planning. Solving these kinds of problems *before* they start is key.
To help, I’ve created this handy checklist for you.
