Our Band

Our Band

The City of Rockford Pipe Band was founded in January of 2000 and made its performance debut on St. Patrick's day just three months later.

Since then, the band has been active in Midwest Pipe Band Association competitions, stage performances, parades, memorials, festivals, charitable events and fund raisers, as well as providing pipers for weddings, funerals and private parties.

The band's competitive successes include Midwest Champion Supreme titles in Grade 5 (2003) and Grade 4 (2006). The band has marched in various grades, including Grades 5, 4 and 3, since our competitive debut in 2002.

In 2006 the band received its 5th consecutive Rockford Area Music Industry Award (RAMI) in the World Music category, and was inducted into the RAMI Hall of Fame in 2007...the only pipe band to have been so recognized.

Our members hail from Rockford, Illinois and the surrounding area, the majority of which are "graduates" of the City of Rockford Pipe Band School of Piping and Drumming.

The City of Rockford Pipe Band is committed to making the tradition of Highland music highly visible here in our own community, and beyond.
