The Power Band Classic is a marching band invitational, hosted by the Lake Hamilton Power Band at Lake Hamilton Schools in Pearcy, Arkansas. This event brings together some of the area's best marching ensembles. The goal for this competition is to give each band and student the best possible educational experience, while providing entertainment for our patrons and spectators. It is our belief that music education facilitates learning in each student's other educational subjects, along with developing valuable life skills. The Power Band Classic provides a venue to showcase the hard work and dedication required by every individual, along with providing examples of music excellence by their peers.

The competition is judged using the Bands of America (BOA) scoring rubric. We always welcome a talented panel of judges, with many years of experience and success in the Bands of America, Winter Guard International, and Drum Corps International. These judges are the best of the best, and each year we are priviledged to have them as a part of this event.

In addition to the bands in competition, the Lake Hamilton Junior Jigh Power Band of Arkansas, under the direction of Bryan Field, and the Lake Hamilton Power Band of Arkansas, under the direction of Jon Schultz, perform in exibition. These two bands will thrill you, and we look forward to their performance each year!

Be a part of this memorable event by volunteering, performing, giving, or simply being a spectator. Be assured, you will be glad you did!
