Local Drum-Group Success Seeks New Members

Drumba Samba, a local, fun-loving Samba drumming band based in Tregony, are searching for new members.

Having just appeared on CBBC’s ‘Marrying Mum and Dad’, the local success recently story helped launch the new Jungle Path at the Lost Gardens of Heligan. In addition to appearances at St Teath, Tintagel, Crackington Haven and Grampound Carnivals, they have undertaken various charity events across the county, and are so busy they’ve had to decline concerts.

Organisers, Keith and Sally Oliver told Roseland Online, “Drumba are now looking to increase the size of their band and are searching for new members. Current members are aged anywhere between 11 and 70 and we have an eclectic mix of players of all ages and levels of experience, so if you’ve ever fancied having a bash, now’s your chance.”

New members won’t need any experience, or even a sense of rhythm; if you can count to four, the team will show you the rest.

Keith added, “The band values having fun and enjoying the rhythms, rather than aiming for a perfect performance; that way everyone enjoys themselves without feeling pressured.”

The band rehearse at the Roseland Community School in Tregony (during the school term) on a Tuesday evening form 7pm to 9pm. If you would like more information, call Tracy Mack on 07517 198882 or email info@drumbasamba.co.uk.
