The Rhythm Connection has been an integral part of the rhythmic and cultural landscape of North Queensland since 2000 making regular appearances in numerous festivals, schools, corporate events and private celebrations.
It is the driving force of what has become one of the most anticipated events in the North Queensland calendar - the Full Moon Drum Circle - held on the Saturday night closest to the night of the Full Moon since 2001 at the Strand , Townsville.
Welcome to the site. Read about recent events, upcoming drum circles and workshops, testimonials and for the first time, a blog where I will share with you some of my fun adventures in the world of rhythm! See you around!

We could not have picked anything better to help us convey our work hard at laughing everyday concepts. You and your drum circle were perfect.
Thank you for the wonderful drumming session. You have an amazing gift and we are extremely grateful that we had the privilege of enjoying it. God Bless.
Your drum circle significantly enhanced the program and I would like to extend a warm thank you on behalf of the delegates and organizing committee.
There is no doubt that drum circle events are a significant part of most celebrations in our city and it is difficult to imagine any entertainment in which they are not included.
Has to be a record for the greatest number of professors banging their own drums! Sincere thanks from us Alex. You did us all proud – JCU, Townsville, FAESS, humanity, etc…
