THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME……..COMING HOME FOR 2017!
At age 35, she ain’t too bad for the wear and tear but we figured she needed a little “measure of rest” from all the traveling and last year’s very long season. No planes to board this year.
The Rounders are staying home this year and all performances will be in the Tampa Bay area! We’ve chosen the best venues from lots of choices – whaddayathink?
– Ybor City St. Paddy’s Parade (Saturday night)
– Pasco Chasco Parade (Saturday afternoon)
– Ferg’s on Rays opening day of baseball against the YANKEES (Saturday afternoon)
– Pinellas County Community Band Festival in Dunedin (Saturday afternoon)
– Mainsail Art Festival in Vinoy Park (Sunday afternoon around 1:00 p.m.)
AND….it’s a short season like it used to be. We don’t start until February with the full band and there are only four full band rehearsals and a marching practice to get it all done with extra practices for the auxiliary and drum line.
COMING HOME! It’s our 35th anniversary and we invite all current and former members back home to enjoy a short and fun season of music, friends and frolic. Take a look at the schedule and mark all the dates NOW so you can join in the fun at every practice and performance. If there was ever a time to come home, this is the year!
As usual, our concerts and parades will be chock full of music that will entertain, wow, and inspire our crowds. Your shepherd will be sending you your music electronically. All you need to do is download and print it.
Whether you are a current, new or former member, we welcome you to our band family. It will be the best decision you can make to start 2017 on a “high note”.
Home Sweet Home….
CODA…..Plan to attend our all new Christmas/Holiday party on December 7th AND bring your instrument, as we will be sight-reading and playing some carols out of the carol books later in the evening…..always a fun time….AND conducted by some of your own fellow Rounders!
