Pyramid Studios in Tallahassee is ready for another Pyramidpalooza

The 3approx The annual Pyramidpalooza will be held on Saturday, May 11th at the Lake Ella American Legion Hall.

The music festival and fundraiser is the product of Pyramid Studios in Tallahassee, an arts-focused, nonprofit day program for adults.

“Our mission is fundamentally to enable people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to have a meaningful day,” says program director Lindsay Joseph. “Whether it’s socializing, whether it’s working on handwriting, learning sign language, playing the trumpet, or appearing in a play, the possibilities are endless.”

Pyramid is customer focused and individuals can gain a wide range of experiences at the Commonwealth Lane facility. Your requests are diverse.

“It could be anything from conducting a science experiment one day to learning to crochet the next day to writing letters to their aunt and uncle in California,” Joseph says. “We kind of do everything and we will help them achieve what they want to achieve.”

Pyramidpalooza began during the pandemic, when the organization's regular music production wasn't an option. This year's event will feature Tallahassee's Lil' Grizzly Boogie Band as the opening act, followed by Pyramid's own Electric People band.

“The Electric People have written an album of all original music. So we will have it available for purchase at the event and they will perform these songs,” Joseph says. “Pyramidpalooza was really an opportunity for them to headline and for our supporters to come out and put on an art exhibition at the same time.”

Art and jewelry created by Pyramid Artists are available for sale. Items include original works from customers at Florida's other Pyramid locations in Fort Walton Beach, Panama City, Pensacola and Tampa.
