The Greater St. Petersburg Area Awesome, Original, Second Time Arounders Marching Band was founded in 1983 by Bill Findeison, the conductor, and Herb Melleney, then director of the Festival of States. The Band was formed to give folks who ever played in a high school, college, or military marching band, the chance to do it a “second time around”. The Band has about 500 members ranging in age from 18-85.
The Band has made appearances in festivals and marched in parades all over the world including Key West, FL; Portland, OR; Orlando, FL; Dublin, Ireland; San Antonio, TX; Savannah, GA; New York City, NY; and in Calgary Canada.
