Maps and directions to our rehearsals
During the pandemic, we hold band rehearsals outdoors at 1:00 PM Tuesdays, at Taylor Park, Largo. We also have a less formal chanter practice at 1:00 PM Thursdays at the park. At this practice we focus on fundamentals, exercises, and learning new tunes. Everyone is welcome.
Taylor Park address: 1100 8th Ave SW, Largo. See map below, marked “Park Practices”.
Directions: Take Alt 19 to 8th Ave SW, head west about 1/2 mile to the park on the left. We usually are at Shelter #2. Just stay on the road past Shelter #1 a few hundred yards and you will come to it. If that is already in use, we take Shelter # 1.
Check our CALENDAR first, or contact us, to make sure a practice is scheduled. If it's colder than 55° F or raining, we move to the church hall.
When things get back to normal, our band rehearsals are at 6:30 PM Tuesdays in the Don Airey Hall at Christ Presbyterian Church, 3115 Dryer Ave, Largo.
Directions: To get there from the north and west, drive to East Bay Dr. and head west. East Bay changes to West Bay at the center of Largo. Continue another 2 miles and turn left at Indian Rocks Rd. Go about a mile and turn left on Dryer. Church is about 1/4 mile on the left.
From the St. Petersburg area, get on Alt 19 north, turn left on Ulmerton Rd., right on Wilcox Rd., right on Pine St., and left on Dryer. Church is about 1/4 mile on the right.
From St. Pete Beach, you can drive north on Gulf Blvd., right on Park Blvd., left on 131st St., and follow all the way to Dryer Ave. (the road becomes Vonn then Gladys). Right on Dryer, church is 100 yds on left.
Upon arriving, turn left when you enter the property and drive around to the back of the hall to park. Walk up the short driveway to the doors.
