We are Flower City Pride Band, the LGBT community band of Rochester, NY.
Formed in 1994, and formerly known as BASSically TREBLEmakers, Flower City Pride Band is comprised of musicians, twirlers, flag corps and colorguard members from greater Rochester, and the upstate New York area. While the band is predominantly lesbian and gay, we welcome musicians and performers, regardless of sexual orientation.
