BandTogether at PrideFest 

A parade without a marching band is like a club sandwich without a frilly toothpick. Enter BandTogether, the perfect accessory to the ever-growing PrideFest St. Louis. BandTogether is in its fifteenth year as the city’s premier volunteer GLBTA concert band. The group hosts concerts year-round at the Scottish Rite Cathedral on Lindell Boulevard, but its most public gig every year happens on South Grand Boulevard (between Utah Street and Tower Grove Park). This ragtag band makes PrideFest’s most joyful noises and gives the spectacle some credibility in the cutthroat local parade scene -- we hear those Shriners can get pretty tough with their little cars. BandTogether will be far from the only posse of out and out-there folks making a scene this Pridefest, but with a full color guard giving visual flair to the punchy percussion and brass, it’s likely to be the only group twirling and tossing and catching its freak flags in well-rehearsed unison. Catch the free show at noon on Sunday, June 24..
