23rd August 2022 - F2F Reopening Kickoff with Rhythm Beats Parkinson's Drum Circle.
" Yes, that (PEOPLE) is the most important thing. If you have a group of drummers like this, it is the people who make the connection. You can sit there and drum and drum, close you eyes and pretend you are the only person here but it is the people who are with you that make the rhythm, that make the sound, that make it fun. So, connect with the people here in the circle. We are all together again for the first time in more than 2 years." - John J. Hagedorn
