Music. Membership. Mission.
These tenets form our foundation, our measure of success.
Our members are police officers, lawyers, engineers, students, machinists, Doctors to name but a few and all are tremendous individuals who share the common goal of being a successful and competitive pipe band. The band continues to exist thanks to the ongoing support of the public safety professionals throughout the Raleigh region; we are proud of our long history with them.
Each year the band participates in a number of events on behalf of the Public Safety Services. These events include recruit graduation ceremonies, awards and promotion ceremonies and community events, however none are more important than our participation in the North Carolina Fallen Firefighters Foundation march and memorial each spring. These kinds of events pay tribute to public safety professionals who have given their lives in service to others.
Band members take great pride in all our endeavors and realize there is always a higher level of excellence to be won. We strive to be humble and grateful for our members, our collective talents and the opportunities we have to perform and grow and flourish as an organization. We remain focused on future achievement.
I’ve never heard of these guys from North Carolina before BUT their pipes match Inverary and Fife and they know their music back-to front, better than most of us here. Who the f*@k are these guys?!?!”
