About the Band

The Syracuse Scottish Pipe Band was formed in 1973 when the City of Syracuse and the American Scottish Pipe Bands combined. Since that time it has remained competitive, winning several awards and placing in competitions graded 2nd through 5th. The band currently has 36 pipers and drummers on its roster. Practices are held on Thursday nights (6:30 PM) at the United Methodist Church in Liverpool and at Onondaga Lake Park or at the St. Marie Fort parking lot during the summer.
