Many of our members have played with, or are still playing with other area bands. Our experience level spans from 35 years down to just a few months for students. Even though our primary focus is to play good music while having fun and flock fellowship, we support those members who choose to achieve grade level through competitions sanctioned by the Midwest Pipe Band Association and The Eastern United States Pipe Band Association.
