THE VILLAGES SUNSHINE STROLLERS
is a fun-time Instrumental organization known for its colorful attire and clownish antics.
The band plays a variety of music with lots of “sing along” selections which are popular
and guaranteed to get audiences on their feet. Typical venues include performances
for community events, club meetings, birthdays, and similar festive occasions.
The Strollers are often seen performing for special events on the town squares,
club meetings through out The Villages, and events outside The Villages. Audiences never
know what to expect when the group shows up wearing wacky outfits and setting up music
stands to get ready to play their happy tunes. A major goal of the band is to entertain
audiences through the involvement of singing and even dancing with the music.
Membership is opened to residents of The Villages with prior instrumental musical experience.
Rehearsals are on Mondays at 4:00 p.m. prior to scheduled performances.
Location of the rehearsals are at recreation centers to be announced.
The number of performances are dependent upon bookings.
It is not unusual to play 3-4 times a month-while having fun at the same time.
For further information and/or booking a performance, please contact Ward Green.
He is available to discuss schedules, booking costs, and other special needs and requests.
