The Vancouver Police Pipe Band has spent the last 100 years entertaining people around the globe, while at the same time acting as ambassadors for their country, province and city. As the world’s oldest, continuous serving police pipe band and official band of the City of Vancouver, with a regional population in excess of 2.5 million people, they are continually called upon to play for charity and community events, visiting royalty, heads of state and celebrities.


In January 2014, the Mayor awarded Vancouver’s highest honour to the men and women of the Band – the Freedom of the City Award. The Band’s centenary peaked in June of 2014 when they travelled to England to play for the changing of the guard, at both Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. This was the first time in the 300 years history of the iconic, internationally recognized ceremony that a non–military band was granted the honour.

It's nice to be pictured in the Edinburgh Tattoo's advertisement. Too bad the movie they're showing in theatres is the 2017 version and not the 2016 show that our band actually played in.

Members of the Vancouver Police Pipe Band are saddened to hear of the recent passing of Pipe-Major Ian MacDougall and Andrew Bonar. Ian and Andrew were both accomplished giants in the BC Pipe Band Community. They did much to further and promote world class piping through their band and solo efforts, as well as through instructing the many students, who will no doubt enjoy success in their own music passion. We are glad to have known these gentlemen and offer our deepest condolences to their families.
