We are happy to announce the 2011 Drum Boogie Festival – a free multi-cultural arts and educational event, celebrating the diverse styles of world percussion to benefit cancer research.

Two years ago, we put together a very special free musical event in Kingston which drew several thousand people. World-class musicians performed diverse styles of percussion music and dance.

We are presenting this one day event again this fall on September 17th (rain date 18th) from 9:30 AM to 8 PM in beautiful Cornell Park in the historic Rondout district of Kingston, NY – overlooking the Hudson River.

The lineup of performers reads like a who’s who of stars within their styles of Jazz, Rock, Classical, Rudimental, Steel Pan and African. This year’s festival will offer an exciting morning drum circle to benefit cancer treatment in the Hudson Valley and for Family of Woodstock, a local advocacy organization for people in need.

Jazz, Rock, African, Ragtime, Indian, Contemporary, Native American, Steel Pan, Kids, American Rudimental, Dance – and MORE.
