The City of Sacramento Pipe Band regularly performs in concerts throughout the region. Contact the Music Director if you are interested in having the Band play at YOUR event.
- Unique cultural experience
- Enthusiastic and accomplished musicians of all ages
- Community based
- The City of Sacramento Pipe Band organization was created to compete in local, regional, and Statewide pipe band competition events, typically at various stagings of Scottish/Highland Games. The Band has won many championships in its 21 years of competing, including the 1995 Western United States Pipe Band Association Championship for Grade 3 in Reno, Nevada.
- Known for its hallmark DEAD CAT ALLEY concerts, the Band performs in at least one major fund-raising concert each year, and sometimes more. The LIVE AT DEAD CAT ALLEY concert fostered the Band’s first CD, “Live at Dead Cat Alley”.
- Sometimes a large pipe band is just too much for an event. The Band is easily able to form smaller groups of its members, from 2-6 pipers and a 3-4 member drum corps, and perform at various smaller venues.
- Solo Artists
- Many situations call for a solo piper. Weddings, graduations, birthdays, funerals, commemorations, and dedications are all examples of the variety of events calling for a piper. The Band has many capable pipers that can provide this service.
