The Midwest City High School Band (also known as the Pride of Midwest City) is a 120-135 member band under the direction of Head Band Director John Davis and Assistant Band Director Mark Hensley. The marching band consists of 3 Drum Majors, A complete percussion sideline ensemble, A full field band, and a full drumline.
In 2012, a New band room was added-on to help hold 2 separate bands and ensembles during different time periods, and to help with the amount of students in the program. During this period, the band received what is now the current band uniforms, along with more funding towards the band program it's self.
The band has won over 400 awards over decades, winning the Oklahoma Secondary School Activity Association's "Sweepstakes" award for receiving perfect scores in Marching Band, Concert Band, and in Concert Band Sight Reading in 1979, 1982, 1992, and in 1996. The most recent of the band's accomplishments is in 2015 after winning a superior rating in the OSSAA marching band for 6A and winning 12th place in the Tigerplaooza Marching finalist at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma.
After the football season is over, the band switches from a marching season into what is known as "Concert Season".
Each year, the band becomes divided into two bands, The Symphonic Band and The Wind Ensemble, each goes to compete in the OSSAA state concert band contest in April of each year. Both bands also perform in the Winter (Christmas) Concert in December, and in the Spring Concert in May of each year.
The students that are in band at the feeder schools (Monroney Middle School) and (Jarmen Middle School), along with some transfer students from different schools and districts, help make the school's band program over the years, especially when Mid-Del made Jr. High schools to Middle Schools and moved 9th grade to high school, adding on to the number of students in the band program starting in 2007 .
This program is also contains 2 Jazz Ensembles, "The Beginning Jazz Band" and the more college repertoire, "The Advance Jazz Band", both under the direction of Mark Hensley, who has been over the Ensembles since he began working at Midwest City High School in 2002.
