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.

BANDS OF THE VILLAGES 

Patriotic Spectacular Concert

Sunday 3 July, 3pm or 7 pm

Savannah Center 1545 Buena Vista Blvd 


Join the Bands of the Villages in their annual celebration of America!

Volunteer musicians from three of the Villages’ largest bands combine

their talents to perform a variety of patriotic music. The music is guaranteed

to reflect the heartbeat of our nation with selections from World War II,

Dixieland favorites, Sousa marches, and even a special presentation

of the Battle Hymn of the Republic. 


And yes, of course, we’ll pay tribute to our Armed Forces. For those who

have served in the military, please feel welcome to wear Service caps. 


What a great way to get ready to celebrate the fourth of July? Put on

your red, white, and blue; and come out for a “shot” of good old-fashioned

patriotism. Tickets are on sale at the Villages Box Offices for $15.00.

In addition to enjoying the Patriotic Spectacular music extravaganza, 

it’s noteworthy that a large portion of the ticket sales will be donated to

the Ukraine relief efforts and to the Fisher House of Tampa.

Attendance Policy for playing a Concert


As we continue grow

in quality of 

performance and quantity of members

it is imperative to

have full attendance

at rehearsals. We all know that there are 

very good reasons

why people are not

able to attend every rehearsal and those reasons are respected; however, the following guidelines have been established to insure

the highest level of performance that we 

can possibly achieve.


It is expected you 

attend at least 1/2 of 

our rehearsals as well

as the dress rehearsal

in order to be able to perform at any 

Concert. If for some reason you are unable

to achieve this, you 

will still retain your membership in the 

Band, but will not perform at that particular Concert.


You know how much practice you need in order to play the 

music well, but keep 

in mind that the full group needs YOU! 

To achieve the proper blend and balance of 

the ensemble, it is necessary that you are at each rehearsal to contribute your part 

so the Director can make the necessary adjustments. 


If there are special circumstances in not being able to meet the above requirements please contact the Director and you will 

be notified of any exemption which 

might be granted.


I hope you understand and support the 

policies mentioned above while we 

continue to improve musically.
