The Pirate POWER Classic is a MSHSAA sanctioned Parade Band and Competition located in Pleasant Hope in Southwest Missouri. The Pirate POWER Classic is a celebration of small town parade bands, and nothing else. We welcome any and all small school band programs to participate. However, any class of band is welcome.
There are four judges on the parade route: Music/Percussion, Marching/Corner, General Marching and Drum Major/Auxiliary. As tradition there will be a “Battle of the Bands” before award presentations, so bring your best band spirit.
The Pirate Classic will also be serve as the final stop for any band who is in the running for the “Triple Crown” award (Marionville Parade, Stockton Parade, & Pirate Classic). Bands who participate in all three will have their total scores added and whomever has the highest overall score of all three wins the triple crown!
Deadline for participants is FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th, 2022.
