    I have observed new drum groups for the past thirty years and new groups come and go and the ones that stay around are now mentioned by younger pow-wowers as old school, traditional, original, and such and so on. When actually some of us older pow-wowers know and remember when these mentioned old school, traditional, original drum groups were just beginning their drum groups. Sometimes new drum groups begin because of a falling out between members of a drum group because of various reasons either personal or professional because we as natives are like most human beings have our little disagreements. Sometimes a new drum group is an off-spring of an original group formed because of some disagreements. When I heard the term "new drum group" It made me think of a question," Do you mean the younger age drummers forming a drum group? or Do you mean a drum group that started as an off-spring from another drum group? or Do you mean a drum group that came from a traditional name and has changed its name in a traditional way what appears as a new drum group?" All of these can be considered a new drum group. I did not mean to insult your question because it is a good question. However, I thought I might ask because I know there are others who may have have had the same question that I had.

    As far as my selections for new drum group starting up by younger drummers I believe a Yakama-Puyallup tribe based group from Toppenish & Tacoma, WA. named "Wild Rose" is one of the best groups in the Pacific Northwest Pow-wow region. If you have not heard them then you have to hear them because their sound is a pretty good and they seem to have the support of many of the younger and older pow-wowers. I will only mention this group because some of my other new group selections are off-springs from other drum groups because of reasons I have mentioned above. AH-HO!

        Native Thunder from Oglala Rez sound pretty good. . .don't know if they are all that new though.

        I like Tha Bucks (Milwaukee Bucks) sound. . .kind of lost a couple of singers but picked up some strong voices. I think they are sounding pretty good with a full crew.

          Chi-Key_Wis Sons from the Lake of the Woods area are sounding sharp. With a full crew they can sure turn a pow wow around. They been spending there time at local traditional pow wows for the most part but expect them at contest pow wows soon. Better watch out for these guys. You all are the first to hear of them. Watch out!!!!:D

            Drum groups...


            Well i do have to agree, that THUNDERHOUSE is great. They have alot of energy. We sat near them at Fort McDowell, and man! THey know how to sing. THey have high pitched voices that make you want to sing along with them, and it just gives you the chills.

            I also Think REDHORSE is just as good. There members are mostly teenagers, and thats what makes it better, they can make there voices high without hardly any effort. I love both drumgroups. I also like Redhorses side step songs.

            YOu both are very great. See you guys around AZ!!

                              "Southern Cree" Montana, these guy's were one of the invitves at Ann Arbor Mich last year.

                              "Eagle Flight" sang at the Skydome in Toronto liked thier old style straight songs

                              "Snake Island" these guys also sang at the Sky Dome in Toronto they gave me one of thier latest CD'S "WOW" if you like old style straight songs like me get thier tape.

                              "Moon Dwag" Southern Drum that set up at Mt Pleasant last they might have been a put togather drum but they sounded great.

                                I, and many of you, have sang for years around the drum. What are some of the benefits to singing at the Center Drum? What are some of the benefits of singing with your group?

                                Lots of good drums have come and gone. Lots of you are singers who have sung with different drum groups.

                                What are some of the main reasons why you won't sing with a certain drum anymore???

                                What is everyone's opinion of drum hoppers? I don't like it when they just set in without asking or join in right in the middle of a song. I won't tolerate this with my new drum group. If someone wants to sing with us, I expect them to ask no matter who they are. Don't just come in the middle of...

                                Most Humble Drum Groups
                                by ReeDaMan
                                Who do you think is the most humble drum groups? The drum groups that rock the house, but still are down to earth people who treat other singers with equal respect. I've seen alot of drums that get successful, and forget what it was like starting out, and think they are better than everyone else....
