Performances


The Blazing River Freedom Band (BFRB) typically performs four concerts a year, as well as at Pride festivals and parades. We also perform at community events such as the Cleveland AIDS Walk, and others.

The band can perform traditional concert band literature, pep music, marching band music, pop music, music for the Broadway stage, chamber music and more!

Contact us if you are looking for a unique group to entertain for your event.

Want more information about the band? Join us at the first ever Flaming River Con

We will have a table at the Flaming River Con with information on our next performances, who we are, and how to join the band.

From an article in FreshWater: Not just a first for Cleveland, Flaming River Con is actually the inaugural LGBTQIA+ geek convention in the Midwest. (The only similar event takes place in New York City.) Like other comic cons, Flaming River Con includes panels, vendors and events highlighting "geek culture" like comics, tabletop gaming, books, and arts and crafts—but with a focus on inclusivity, a trait that’s sometimes lacking at similar events.

We hope you will join us and celebrate inclusivity at the First Ever Flaming River Con!
