City of Adelaide Pipe Band
About the Band
The City of Adelaide Pipe Band is South Australia's premier pipe band and was founded in 1991 by a group of young and enthusiastic South Australian pipers. Their intention was to create an enjoyable and competitive pipe band to represent the state in high level competitions and public performances. Nearly three decades later, this is exactly what the band is still doing.
Despite a relatively short history, the band has experienced success both on and off the contest field. The band has won 2 Australian Pipe Band Championships, 4 Victorian Pipe Band Championships, and numerous South Australian Pipe Band Championships.
Off the contest field, the band has had the opportunity to perform in concert with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, John Farnham and Rod Stewart.
The band regularly performs at public events, both locally and internationally, including the:
Australia Day Parade
ANZAC Day Parade
National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant
Salisbury Christmas Pageant
Royal Adelaide Show
Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix
City to Bay Fun Run
Adelaide City Council's "Lighting of the Christmas Tree"
Ethnic Schools Association Parade
The band is led by Pipe Major Andrew Fuller and Drum Sergeant Joshua Troup and proudly wears the Blue Ramsay tartan. Many items of uniform feature the Coat of Arms of the City of Adelaide. The band competes in pipe band contests in Grade 2.
