Having read about our organization, are you interested to become a band member?
We are looking for new band members, whether you are a seasoned piper or drummer, or a beginner wishing to develop your capability....
Welcome to our official website of the Hamilton Police Pipe Band. Our organization has been established since 1961, and we hope that you will enjoy reading about our recent developments, activities, and successes over the years.
The Band Executive and Music Leadership Team are pleased to inform you that in 2015/2016, we established a new Developmental Teaching Program. The musicality and innovation of this program is lead by our current Piper Major and Lead Drummer, and is supported by a strong nucleus of pipers and drummers within the organization. Our band’s Executive and Music Leadership Team are very passionate about creating a fun and enjoyable environment that fosters learning experiences and musical growth for both our players and audiences.
As an organization, we take pride in our band commradery, friendships, and great family atmosphere achieved over the years, encompassing both our young and established playing members. We recognize the importance of future sustainability, and we encourage potential new players, wishing to lean bagpipes or drums, to become experienced and accomplished musicians within our pipe band environment.
It's my life's work to express those emotions and feelings that can only be conveyed through music. It's how my spirit takes wing and soars to unfathomable, seemingly unreachable heights. I hope that my music does the same for your spirit, too.
Remembrance Day Nov 11th
"The Hamilton Police Pipe Band’s First Parade:
It was felt that by Remembrance Day, November 11th, 1961, the men were ready to participate in their first parade. Dressed in their police service uniforms, they confidently marched out of the Armories, leading the Hamilton Police War Veterans’ Association to the cenotaph" David Gregory was one of Hamilton Police Service’s first pipers. Unfortunately, he was also one of three Hamilton Police officers to be killed in the line of duty.
