Week two of Wake Up's Band Battle showcased a famous musical score.
The Mosinee High School Marching Band broke out their wind instruments and drums to do a dazzling rendition of the theme from Pirates of the Caribbean. Then, the band surprised everyone by breaking out recorders and kazoos to do a unique version of their traditional fight song.
The full schedule for the contest is as follows:
April 28th: Merrill High School
May 5th: Mosinee High School

The winner will be determined by a two part score.

The other half of the score will be decided by a professional judging panel. The panel is made up of a variety of professionals working in the music industry.
