Christmas Music Workshop and Live Concert with the Hunts!
Mark your calendar and get ready for a family musical experience like no other! We are hosting our first ALL AGES Band Together event with the Hunts.
Join us on December 1, 2018 at Mossman Hall in quaint Melrose, Florida just east of Gainesville.
The event starts at 4:00 when your family is invited to join Band Together’s own Captain Steve and Afton Brown from @raisingorganicpeanuts for a FREE Christmas themed music workshop. Your family will learn how to play Jingle Bells and Silent Night on ukulele, there will be Christmas music sing-a-longs, hot cocoa and cookies, and plenty of holiday cheer.
The music workshop will last until 5:30. The grounds at Mossman Hall provide ample space for kids to run wild and free under a canopy of live oak trees. You are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and a blanket. There are also a few local restaurants within easy walking distance that are happy to offer carry out. The music workshop will be focused on learning songs on ukulele, but guitars, drums, shakers, or just about any instruments are welcomed and encouraged.
Doors open for the Hunts at 7:00 and tickets for the show are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Kids 5 and under are free, and bigger families need only pay for the first 4 tickets. Once a family has paid for 4 tickets, the rest of the gang’s tickets are on us. The Hunts will have a merch table available.

The Hunts are an indie-alternative-folk band comprised of seven brothers and sisters. Born and raised in the south lands of Chesapeake, Virginia, the siblings grew up in a musical home and fell in love with composing their own music. Josh (guitar, lead vocals), Jenni (violin, lead vocals), Jonathan (keys, vocals), Jordan (drums, vocals), Justin (bass, vocals), Jamison (mandolin, vocals) and Jessi (viola, banjo, vocals) pour their blood, sweat and tears into every song and strive to write music that moves hearts with beauty, power and joy.
The Hunts have opened for world renowned bands such as the Fray, X-Ambassadors, Judah and the Lion, OAR, etc. and have appeared at world class music festivals and stages including Austin City Limits, Red Rocks, Firefly and Summerfest. Their music has been used for National TV shows & commercials and has over 14 million streams on Spotify. The band’s most recent record Darlin’ Oh Darlin’ was recorded and mixed by Peter Katis (The National, Jonsi, Interpool, Head and the Heart, etc.)
The Hunts have toured the nation for over 10 years and continue to gain a rising following everywhere.
