Give music, get music in annual Gasparilla Music fest instrument drive

Donate a used musical instrument, enjoy a day of live music.

Recycled Tunes, a program through Gasparilla Music Festival that places donated instruments in needy Hillsborough County schools, will host its second annual instrument drive on Saturday, Feb. 8.


Instruments can be donated between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the parking lot on Ashley Drive, across from Curtis Hixon Park, 600 N. Ashley Drive, Tampa. For every instrument donated the donor will receive their choice of a Saturday or Sunday one-day general admission GMF 2014 ticket.


Gasparilla Music Fest is scheduled March 8 and 9.


Musical instrument donors will also be entered to win one of three grand prizes.


Instruments are repaired through the donated services of Don Banks Music and placed in music programs at underprivileged schools throughout Hillsborough County. Last year’s instrument drive placed 25 instruments in schools.
