On Wednesday and Thursday, the Pinckney Fighting Pirate Marching Band  fitted students for their long-awaited new uniforms. They finally received them after ordering their designs from Stanbury Uniforms last spring, and they were set to premiere the new uniforms at the Homecoming parade and game.

Unfortunately, the uniforms’ time in the spotlight was cut short by the weather after the parade, as the football game was rainy and the band was issued their raincoats.

“I was kind of annoyed that we didn’t get to show [the uniforms] off at the game,” Senior Drum Major Landon McCullough said. “At least we got to show them off in the parade. I just hope the weather is better for senior night.”

Although the premiere didn’t go as planned, the entire process of getting new uniforms as soon as possible was successful in the end. The uniforms were a milestone for the band, considering the Band Boosters program had been in the process of getting the new uniforms for about 2 years. A single uniform costs $381- which is a sum of about $54,000 altogether.

“We had the old uniforms for 18 years. They are older than all of the kids in the band,” Band Camp Facilitator Mrs. Rowse said, who is in charge of making sure the marching band always looks their best.

Typically, marching band uniforms are only used for 15 years, and the band was desperately in need of something new. 

“[My favorite thing about the new uniforms] is that they’re not white, the bibs, and the squared-off shoulders,” Mrs. Rowse said. “The hardest thing was raising the money, but the most rewarding thing is to see the uniforms on the students- to see their faces, because they’re so excited. [When people see the new uniforms] I want that ‘wow’ factor. I want them to be as excited as we all are.”
