Dunedin, Florida, April 3, 2017 - The Pinellas and Hillsborough County Community Bands Join Together to Celebrate a Thriving Live Music Scene DUNEDIN, FL (Sindoon Stage, Dunedin Community Center, 1920 Pinehurst Road, Dunedin, FL). Five Community Bands from Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties join together in celebration of “Live Music” at the second annual Pinellas Festival of Community Bands Saturday, April 8, 2017, outdoors by the Sindoon Stage at the Dunedin Community Center.


Continuous Live Music performed from 3:00PM-5:30PM by the 80-piece St. Petersburg Community Band, the 50-piece Wesley Chapel Wind Ensemble, the 60-Piece Dunedin Concert Band, the 50-piece Eastern Hillsborough Community Band, and the 300-piece Greater St. Petersburg Area Awesome Original Second Time Arounders Marching Band, complete with majorettes, dancers, and flag teams. The five bands will join together for a 400+ piece finale at the end of the show.


Experience the sounds of these five very different bands– individually and as one large group – as they play traditional, familiar and modern tunes. “It’s a showcase of entertainment provided by participants enjoying a lifetime of music making,” says Second Time Arounders director Bill Findeison, who’s adult marching band is celebrating its 35th season.

 

“These are a fine mix of amateur and professional musicians in five bands who enjoy the activity enough to continue playing long after the notes of their high school, college, or military bands have expired. The quality of musicianship is an experience to hear…live” adds Stephen P. Brown who directs the Dunedin Concert Band.


The music begins at 3pm but picnics on the lawn can begin much sooner. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs, fill yourself from the food truck, and be sure to make a donation to help the hundreds of volunteer performers on stage.
