ABOUT

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.

https://t.co/MHoFw6KYou You know your band is a good fit when you look forward to practices & engagements and you enthusiastically provide the band your time, talent and commitment. Our band has been a good fit for musicians for 108 years and we're always looking for new players.
https://t.co/LRRFYaI1s3 Here is an interesting article written by our own Owen Reid, who comments: “I don’t understand why more pipers and drummers who “retired” from competition don’t look to play in a performance band – any performance band.” We’re glad he chose our band.
