2/ REMO KIDS RHYTHM CLUB SATURDAYS at 9:30am and 11am, the incredible Remo Drum Center in North Hollywood opens its doors for kids to participate and lead in a high energy family-friendly drum circle. This is practically a drum factory and you will never be in another place like it, let alone have such access to play. Kids participate free. $5 per adult. Summer Dates: EVERY SATURDAY MAY 30 - AUG 29
3/ HERMOSA BEACH DRUM CIRCLE THIRD SUNDAYS "Free To Be Me" hosts an all ages family-friendly drum circle on the sand just north of the Hermosa Pier.

4/ GETTY GARDEN CONCERTS August weekends only, The Getty will be hosting six Kids Garden Concerts with a great line up of artists, including Lisa Loeb (say what?!), Seattle bouncy-pop kid-punk rockers "The Not-Its!," and Jazzy Ash and the Leaping Lizards- a 6-piece band of ukulele, guitar, banjo, accordion, fiddle, bass, trombone, washboard and more, to craft the sounds of early New Orleans jazz. Concerts are located in the Central Garden. I will most definitely be attending these and I think we should arrange for picnic and carpool. Summer Dates: AUGUST 1st/2nd • 8/9th • 14/15th
