LA Times

The bang’s all here

Be quiet? Don’t touch? You won’t hear that at a Rhythm Child drum circle.

By Brenda Rees

A Rhythm Child performance is more than just a concert. It’s a happening. Founder, lead vocalist and lead percussionist Norm Jones (pictured), a professional musician for 26 years, knows how to bring an audience together. “I take hundreds of instruments to every show so that everyone can interact with us,” says the affable performer. “We provide an opportunity not just to listen to or watch music, but to really have involvement in its creation.” Celebrate the release of the infectious band’s DVD, “In the Studio,” at McCabe’s Guitar Shop. 11a.m. Sun., 3101 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica. $8.
