The pride of lions hosts a different, unique, engaging, and immersive performance every time they play. The band features musicians that range from crystal singing bowls, handmade wooden flutes, water whistles, Latin-influenced rhythms, rain sticks, birdcalls, and conch-shells to all of the conventional instruments found in the Western world of music. This band features musicians from Gainesville/Brazil/Colombia/Native America. The pride is oriented to play only for benefiting the community around them. They proudly commit to donating all payments given to them to nonprofits, the community, and causes in need.

They have raised thousands of dollars in their efforts to be of aid to the Gainesville, Florida community and have sights to raise millions to aid everyone in need that they can reach. They are the founding band of the StrongerTwogether, ImagineTwogether and Growtwogether Music Festival. This festival series highlights the nonprofit: K9CARES Inc. and their efforts to pair rescued animals together with victims of abuse for both of their rehabilitation. Hence, the name 'Twogether' represents the two parties that come together for healing.

and are excited to be sharing it with the community!
