Drummer's Grove - Prospect Park, Brooklyn, Sunday afternoons

Every Sunday afternoon (while the weather is good) more than 50 drummers from varying music backgrounds, countries and generations join together in one continuous jam session under the trees at Drummers Grove in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Regulars jump in with their instruments or tapping feet or dance interpretation and park strollers and people new to the park participate to the extent they feel comfortable whether it be by dancing, sitting around the circle on wooden benches, watching from afar with their baby strollers or filming it all. Lots of women drummers, children, and yummy African and Caribbean food sold nearby.
