About the Concert


Welcome to “Parranda: A Celebration of Culture,” a captivating community band concert in the heart of Tampa, Florida. The Tampa Bay Pride band is composed of talented LGBTQ+ members, brings together the splendor of fine arts and the richness of diverse cultures.

In this extraordinary event, we joyously celebrate our identities and heritage through music, honoring the traditions that unite us all. As part of this vibrant experience, we proudly present “Huapango” by Jose Moncayo, one of Mexico’s most renowned marches. Through this iconic piece, we pay homage to the profound influence of Mexican culture on the world’s artistic landscape.

But what is “Parranda”? It’s not just a concert title, but a word that encapsulates the spirit of festivity and merry-making. Originating in Spanish-speaking countries, “Parranda” represents a joyful and lively gathering of friends and loved ones, coming together to revel in the magic of music, dance, and celebration.

Join us for an enchanting evening where the melodies of “Huapango” resonate with the diversity of Tampa’s culture, and the vibrant spirit of our LGBTQ+ community shines brightly. Let’s create memories, embrace unity, and honor the beauty of our shared heritage in this unforgettable “Parranda” experience.
