Band Shoppe was founded by Chuck and Susan Pearison as Pearison Music Service, a small music store in Poseyville, Indiana. Located in a garage next the Pearison’s home, the company with a staff of five sold and repaired musical instruments for schools. 1979 was the start of selling marching uniforms and accessories. These products were sold from a small black and white flyer that was mailed to three states under the name Band Shoppe.
Since 1970, Band Shoppe proudly continues a tradition of quality products, prompt delivery, and outstanding customer service to music educators and guard instructors in all 50 states and around the globe. Band Shoppe is constantly striving to bring you the best marching and color guard products on the market.
In 2012 the company’s third division Superior Cheer was founded with a catalog and website. The athletic team and corporate uniform business, Embroidery Direct was soon renamed Superior Team Apparel. In 2014 construction was completed on a 20,000 square foot manufacturing plant addition at the Cynthiana headquarters. Pearison, Inc. now has three divisions Band Shoppe, Superior Cheer and Superior Team Apparel under one roof and we continue to grow.
