The World Famous Boonville Silver Pirate Band Concert and Pie Auction will be held in the Laura Speed Elliott Middle School Auditorium at 6:45 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 14.


It’s that time of year again.

The World Famous Boonville Silver Pirate Band Concert and Pie Auction will be held featuring the World Celebrity Pie Auctioneers, Col. John Ed Derendinger and Col. Tim Derendinger, the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade bands and the Boonville High School Silver Pirate Band in the Laura Speed Elliott Middle School Auditorium at 6:45 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 14.

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, 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.”
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 auctioneers from Cooper County.

The Derendinger Auctioneering Firm specializes in turning a pie auction 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.
The Concert and Auction begins at 6:45 p.m. at LSE Auditorium. Admission is free and open to the public.
