Lofty Pursuits sponsors an award winning community marching band, which plays in parades, festivals, and other events throughout the Big Bend region.  Founded in 2010, the "Marching Jerks" currently consist of about 50 members. These musicians are of various ages and abilities, but one thing we have in common is a love of music and performing. Band doesn't have to end after high school or college -- you can be a life-long musician with us!

The band rehearses once a month, usually on the first Wednesday. Performances are announced well in advance, and there is no expectation of being at every event. This is a group of adults, and we realize that family and work commitments can sometimes get in the way. But the more events you can attend, the more fun you will have. Just ask our members!

If you're over 18 and think this sounds like fun, please contact us. New members are always welcome.

  • Want to join, but are worried that your horn is too dusty and your skills too rusty? We have several members who are playing again after many years off, and they report that the skills really do come back. 
  • Do you need a horn? Let us know; we have some instruments available, including sousaphones and percussion equipment.

BOOKING: The Lofty Pursuits Marching Band is available for parades and other community events. We have a large repertoire, including pop tunes, FSU school songs, patriotic, and holiday music. Contact us if you would like us to bring our special brand of fun to your event.
