  There are at least 2 churches in this area named St. John's (the Methodist church at 27th and St. Paul and an Episcopal church on Greenmount).  I'm guessing that it is St. John's Methodist on St. Paul.  Is that correct?

    Please mail this out to whoever you can. We have very little budget this year, and no puclicty money, so this is it....if you use publisher and would like an electronic version of the actual flyer, please mail me back. If you have the umph to spread paper flyers, I'll give you some of those too. Peace through Music,
    Save the date.
    For the 11th Annual Rhythm Festival, known this year as the "Rhythm Gathering."
    The 11th annual BIRDS Rhythm Gathering will be held on October 1, 2005, at St. John's Church.  
    It will start at 2:00pm with a drum circle jam outside of the church, and go through midnight.
    Part of the philosophy of a "gathering" rather than a festival is more of an intimate feel, and also a true gathering of the Baltimore area community of drummers to participate in the festival themselves-not just attend.  This community is a unique drumming community: it is rich, diverse, and draws people from many surrounding areas.
    During the day, we have a Dunun drum workshop with Urban Foli, Jaqui is back with Drum for Joy!, Zaipo will be rocking the house with his African dance workshop, Ken Krampton will be working with the children for a kids workshop, and more.  Workshop prices will be available soon. All day long there will be marketplace vendors (drums for sale!), a Kid's Corner sponsored by Port Discovery, beverages and food from Yabba Pot.
    The evening will kick off at 6pm with all of you onstage, showcasing your local stuff to the community, and then the evening performances start at 8:00. We will be joined by Egyptian Sun Belly Dancers, and to top it off, Urban Foli will end the evening performance night with a BLAST as we then move into the community drum jam until midnight.  Mama Kibibi Ajanku of Sankofa Center for Cultural Enrichment will be enriching our stage again this year with her presence as master of ceremonies during the open mic and performer portion of the evening. Admission to this is $10 for the whole evening. Bargain!
    If your group is interested in performing on stage during the open mic portion 6:00pm-8:00pm (there are 12 minute time slots for performances) please E-mail tammi_waffle at yahoo.com with your group's information/description/what you stand for, and cc Mark Cello at mchello@ bellatlantic.net for your sound needs for your portion.  We will work out a schedule and mail it out to those interested.
    How is the Rhythm Gathering different from and the same as the Rhythm Festival?
    1. There will not be a street festival with the street closing.  The gathering will happen on the "lawn/parking area" of the church during the day and inside the church (workshops).
    2. There will not be an outdoor stage during the day, but the drum circle will take place all day outside on the lawn/parking area. There will be some food vendors and a few marketplace vendors.
    3. The evening concert will have 2 parts: a "planned" community open Mic and scheduled performers.  Would you like to be on stage? Please contact us!
    4. There will be the usual ROCKIN drum circle after the performance, the usual until midnight!
