Rose City Gay Freedom Band
Since forming in 1990, Rose City Gay Freedom Band has been a place for GLBTQI musicians and friends to play, perform, and participate in Portland's musical community. Today, RCGFB is comprised of a symphonic wind ensemble, a sixteen-piece swing band (Rose City Swing), a marching band, and several smaller performing groups.
Join the Band
The Rose City Gay Freedom Band welcomes anyone who plays an instrument to consider joining. While many members are accomplished musicians, many new members had not played since high school or college.

Upcoming Events: We are coming upon the season of PRIDE. Portland is a beautiful city and we love our pride weekend. If there are any of you out there that would like to come explore the wonders of Portland, OR, our Portland Pride Band is looking to take up a city block for the parade this year. Flags and rifles for the guard, a full drum line and a horn section that goes on for ages. Join the Portland Pride Band in this year's Portland Pride Parade on Sunday, June 15!
