Jeff Wolf to Facilitate March for Jobs and Justice at MLK Memorial

Jeff Wolf will be at the Memorial and at the National Mall with us to help make the drumming inclusive and fun.  He brings his trailer, tent, and drums to the event, along with great energy and expeirence.  I worked with Jeff at our Drum Out Poverty Day here in Brookland in NE Washington last Summer and it was a universal success.  We'll get started playing at 10:00 AM at the Memorial site, then march over along the reflection pond to the "I have a dream" location for a one-hour rally for jobs and justice.   We only have a license for the two hours so please be on time ... there's parking available along the Ohio ave for those who will be driving.

A Call to Action for Drummers NOW!

We have been asked to organize a Drum Circle at the National Mall on the 17th in honor of MLK.  We need everyone who reads this blog to get in touch with us and arrange to bring your drums along to the site of the new MLK memorial at 10:00 AM on Monday, January 17th 2011.  This is a call to action and a chance to play your drums on National Television and be part of history.

The March for Jobs and Justice is reflective of Dr. King's original march.  We will gather at the Memeorial and march to the site of the great speech on the National Mall.  We have the requisite Park Service Licenses.  Come play into History.
