If you’re planning on getting out to enjoy some of the best from Tampa's music scene at the Gasparilla Music Festival this weekend, look for our Patel Conservatory students on stage!

Four of our Rock School students will be performing along with other local bands at the festival, which will be this Sat., Mar. 9 at Kiley Garden and Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park in downtown Tampa.

The Gasparilla Music Festival is an annual event featuring local bands and musicians from a wide variety of genres on several stages, and cuisine from the region's top restaurants.

The Patel Conservatory's Rock School band 'Nfin8 will perform two original songs, Every Time I Think of You and Smile, both with music and lyrics by the band’s keyboardist and vocalist Parker Wilkson.

The band worked together on the musical arrangements for both songs.
