Todd Rundgren sang the song, "Bang on the drum all day," CNN's Michelle Kosinski seemed to be doing it all night.
Page Six says that last weekend Kosinski hosted a party with loud African drumming at her London home that infuriated neighbors and was shut down by authorities.
Kosinski, a former NBC News correspondent in London, and her British former-banker hubby, Kimbell Duncan, own a home in upscale Notting Hill and threw a summer soiree on Saturday.
The epic party broke into a backyard drum circle that could be heard a mile away and “went on for hours” till party-pooper neighbors called “noise enforcers.” Sniffed one resident: “Quiet Notting Hill was filled with the sound of tribal drums. It sounded like an invasion.”
Another source said of the broadcaster’s bacchanal, “It was a hot night, which never happens in London. They were in town to see everybody, so they invited tons of people to a summer party.”
Kosinski brought in 10 large drums as decoration for her garden, and their owners, two professional African drummers, “decided to teach everybody to play the drums,” said a spy.
“It turned into a full-on crazy wave of rhythm that was so intoxicating,” said our source. “Neighbors came by with their kids to see what was happening and then they started playing. It was totally surreal.”
In the yard, “it looked like all of these fashionably dressed ladies and gentlemen were playing ‘drum-circle style.’ Crazy, even for a night in London. Leave it to the Americans.”
A spokesman for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea confirmed officers visited the property after complaints.
Either way, staid Beltway insiders will certainly be clamoring to get onto the list for Kosinski and Duncan’s next summer fête.
