It's that time of year again! On Friday, January 18 in the Laura Speed Elliott Middle School Auditorium at 6:45 p.m. the 18th Annual World Famous Boonville Silver Pirate Band Concert and Pie Auction will be held featuring Col. Tim Derendinger and the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th grade Bands and the Boonville High School Silver Pirate Band. Last year the money raised from this event was used to purchase new instruments, feed the band on school trips, produce a professionally recorded CD, as well as scholarships for students to attend music camps. The event has been a “delicious” success in years past, raising thousands of dollars for equipment, new band uniforms, scholarships, and travel meals for students in the Boonville Band program. With the music of the bands and the stellar talent of our auctioneers, the goal of the Boonville Silver Pirate Band Pie Auction and Concert is to put the “fun” back in “fundraising.” This year members of the audience are invited to a new addition to the Concert and Pie Auction. Chili will be served starting at 5:45 and throughout the evening to chase away the January cold. . The bands will be performing a wide range of musical styles, including marches, overtures, popular, and swing music, with extra added entertainment by the world famous and extraordinary pie auctioneer from Cooper County. The Derendinger Auctioneering Firm specializes in turning a pie auction and chili supper into a great night of music and fun. This is a great time to get out, enjoy some great band music, and see what's cooking in Boonville at this entertaining event. Come continue the tradition of great food, music and fun with the Chili Supper at 5:45 p.m. in the LSE Cafeteria and the Band Concert and Pie Auction at 6:45 p.m. on Friday, January 18 at LSE Auditorium.
