The St. Petersburg Community Band was founded in 1975, and we are still going strong. We are a registered non-profit organization of 75-plus volunteer musicians of all ages. We play a wide variety of music from Blues to Big Band, Classical to Sousa, and just about everything in-between.
We are supported by donations or sponsorships. We purchase music or large instruments with donations. However, we play for many local activities at no charge, such as the Special Olympics, Sheriff’s Youth Ranch and the Veterans Administration Hospital. We also play for the city of St. Petersburg Christmas Tree Lighting, many large retirement homes and churches throughout the community.
