Offered through the City of Ventura, this tour is part local history lesson/part amateur ghost hunt and lots of fun! It should be a good way to usher in October. Elevators will be operating so it is accessible to call.

We will meet on the steps of Ventura's Century old City Call, formerly the Ventura County Courthouse, to examine stories of ghosts and paranormal events. This tour will delve deeply into the many tales of the supernatural and visit the places where they took place.

Jennifer Merlich first heard the call of the drum at a very early age, playing snare drum and other percussive instruments in school band. In her early twenties, she discovered the djembe, and began studying the rhythms of Africa, Latin America and the Middle East under the guidance of her teacher, Karuna Warren.

Jennifer moved to California in 1999, and began teaching hand drumming at Ventura College. The classes were extremely popular, and soon Jennifer was teaching and performing throughout Ventura, Los Angeles, and Santa Barbara counties, exploring the dynamics of organized ensemble drumming, as well as the sometimes chaotic and often comical realities of performing live in front of an audience.

Jennifer has studied or played with drum masters from all over the world including Babatunde Olatunji. It is Olatunji’s Gun Go Do method that Jennifer now uses to help new drummers quickly and easily join the circle. Jennifer's classes promote creativity, acceptance, harmony, and a very healthy dose of fun. After only one session, class participants are very literally making beautiful music together!
