Innovative and inclusive music and arts in Cumbria and NE

BJamba HORNS is our second popular community drumming band, this time with melody too! We come in all ages, with a friendly family feel that we call BJambily.

Tuesdays: 5.30-6.30pm (£4)

BJamba HORNS has around 20 players enrolled currently and we have space for new members. The group is mostly adults, but all ages are really welcome. BJamba HORNS, unlike our BJamba performance band, is suitable for beginner drummers of any level of experience or confidence.

We are very friendly and do actually do quite complicated patterns but there are always easy options and the main thing is to enjoy it and if you play a different rhythm from someone else it doesn’t matter!

We play with muted drums so no need for earplugs unless you want to.

Some people join in order to move on to the main BJamba performance band, but you are welcome to stay with BJamba HORNS as long as you wish.

For drumming patterns and melody parts in Concert, Bb and Eb, go to our shared Google Drive folder: Droving Set 2022

Here are some excerpts from our sessions…
