We are located in the heart of Kent, England. The City of Rochester Pipe Band has just celebrated its 30th anniversary. we have played at many venues throughout UK and abroad. We wear the McDougall tartan, and we have over 30 members in the band.
A brief history of the band, the band was originally conceived in the mind of Mick Hicks, Who had taught himself to play the bagpipes to a good degree of proficiency.
When he was looking through the local paper, and saw an article that caught his eye. He had seen a photo of an ex Black Watch Piper whose name was Edward McHale and Eddie lived in the area, so Mick decided to get in touch with the newspaper and find out more about this piper, and see if he would be interested in trying to form a band. So he tracked him down, and put his proposal to him.
