About Us - Tim Root

The Florida Brass drum and bugle corps was organized in 2003 in Lakeland, Florida with seven members.  In ten years the corps has now grown to be one of the best musical groups in the state of Florida.


Drum corps people as well as high school and college students from all over the country and locally have made this corps one of the best in the United States.  The Florida Brass is also made up of past members from all eras of over 60 different drum and bugle corps  nationwide.


We appear in parades and perform in concerts all over the sunshine state. The Florida Brass is a non profit organization and performs in these events for fun, to entertain the public and to raise money for instruments, uniforms and instructors. If you'd like to hire us contact our business manager Jim Roth for details.


Our music  offers up selections that vary from a Latin style beat to music from the opera…  Done with class and a flair that only The Florida Brass knows how.


Be a part of The Florida Brass. Come to one of our (open) rehearsals in Lakeland, Florida  and see the corps with class, The Florida Brass.
