Auckland and Districts Pipe Band
One of New Zealand's premier pipe bands that has been at the top echelon of competition since 1929 and currently holds the New Zealand Championship title.
The band can cater to a great many events and occasions.
Solo pipers for weddings, funerals, birthday parties and recitals.
Minibands (3-6 pipers and 1-2 drummers) for promotional events, dances and concerts.
Full band for parades, sporting events, ceilidh’s and concerts.
The band can also provide Highland and Irish dancers as well as perform Haggis ceremonies.
The band has an extensive repertoire easily sufficient to perform a full length concert recital. They have experience performing with orchestra’s and brass bands at large concert venues. In addition to the traditional Scottish music many will recognize, there is a large repertoire of exciting jigs, reels, strathspeys, airs and waltzes. Anything they don’t normally play can be learnt in a very short space of time.
The band can also supply all the people needed for Haggis Ceremony - the full party is usually Piper, Reciter of the Ode, bearer of the Haggis, bearer of the Whisky, plus two sword bearers.
Ideal for: corporate function, private party, wedding, Scottish themed event, haggis ceremony, ceilidh, Celtic themed event, concert
Cameron, our Piper was a charming young man who provided exceptional service, mastering the Scottish tunes we had selected and playing them beautifully for my Mothers farewell. He even stayed around to show my young great nephews how the bag pipes worked after the event. I would highly recommend him. Such a dedicated young man.

Thanks yes all went well. On the day before our piper Lewis called off Ill but he had arranged a substitute Chabb, who was superb.
Yep Bob was great...under difficult circumstance ie a garden wedding in the rain :)

I have to say Lex was the best solo bagpiper I have ever heard! He was also fantastic in the lead up to to the event, sending me tunes to listen to and helping suggest song choices. He brought many of us to tears and was so professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him or your company to anyone.
