African Drumming Forum at the Tubman African American Museum

When you hear drums playing, you perk up, no matter who you are or where you are from. It’s something that runs deep within us all. You start to move with the drums without even thinking about it. Well, the Tubman African American Museum is offering a chance to join a drum circle and create some moving rhythms while having fun at the same time. The whole family is invited. Admission is $3 per person or $10 for a family of four. The drumming starts at 7 p.m. For more information, call 478-743-8544.

Josh Daniel Band at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

Josh Daniel is a 23-year-old military veteran who came back home to Middle Georgia and picked up his guitar to help cope with his mother’s death. Since then, he has gone on to share the stage with country songwriter Randy Howard and play the Georgia National Fair in Perry. Now, he and his band invade downtown Macon to inject a dose of local country with songs like “Memphis Storm Clouds” and the crowd favorite, “Redneck Rockstar.” 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Wartown at Wild Wing Cafe

The two man duo of “Steve & Mike” love their hometown of Warner Robins so much that they named their acoustic music project after the city’s nickname. These guys just love music and they love to play and sing. You’ll hear everything from Southern rock to country to hip-hop at a Wartown show. It’s the perfect fit to go along with the great food and cold drinks you can enjoy at Wild Wing Cafe. 10 p.m. Free.

Hysteria --The Def Leppard Tribute at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

There was something special about ’80s rock, wasn’t there? The hair. The head banging. It makes people party. Well, while you can’t see a lot of those bands today, but you can get really close to Def Leppard with Hysteria. You’ll hear all your Def Leppard favorites like “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” “Love Bites” and many more. 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Bootsy Collins at the Cox Capitol Theatre

It’s not too often that a bass player becomes a superstar front man. You can probably list them all on one hand. Well, without a doubt, Bootsy Collins is the biggest of them all. He’s the leader of Bootsy’s Rubber Band, as well as member of Parliament-Funkadelic, and got his start as a member of James Brown’s band. With a resume like that, you can’t help but be a superstar. All ages welcome. 7 p.m. Tickets are $34.50 in advance (at www.coxcapitoltheatre.com) and $38.50 the day of the show.
