Prattville Pops

The Prattville Pops community band was formed in 2002 under the direction of Mr. Ronnie Mallory. The Pops debut performance was December 6, 2002, as part of the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in front of City Hall in Downtown Prattville.


The Prattville Pops are currently under the direction of Larry Bills, permanent, and is a non-auditioned band which is open to all adults. The Pops hold annual Spring (April/May) and Fall (October) Concerts, as well as a concert featuring exclusively marches in March, and regularly perform for events such as the Christmas Tree Lighting and Parade, Mardi Gras Parade, Fountain City Arts Festival, Community Chorus Spring Dinner Concert, and the Patriotic Concert and 4th of July Parade.


Although the band started small, with only fifteen members, it has grown over the past decade to thirty-five active members, representing all wind and percussion instruments. The large military community in Prattville has given the Pops the opportunity to have many members for just a short period of time, allowing the Pops to boast over 100 alumni members!


Rehearsals are from 7-8:30 p.m. (concert band) and 8:30-9 or 9:15 p.m. (jazz band) on Tuesday nights at the Prattville Christian Academy Band Room (Summer dates and times may differ, visit Facebook or call (334) 595-0854 for more information on schedule changes and cancellations.)


The Prattville Pops is sponsored by the City of Prattville and the Prattville Creative and Performing Arts Council.
