- Other:Special Interest
Beginning in 1980 as the Wanneroo Pipe Band, we currently have one remaining foundation member and 3 life members playing in the band.
The band became North Metro Pipe Band Inc in 2008 to reflect the greater area where our members reside, then Northside Highlanders Pipe Band in 2017 to reflect the ever increasing Northern Corridor of Perth.
We have enjoyed playing many country engagements over the years in Western Australian from Shark Bay to Kalgoorlie to Albany.
Other notable events have been playing for Anzac Day parades and services, the Olympic Torch relay, The Cancer Council Relay for Life, Blessing of the Fleet and playing for Andy Stewart in Perth.
Several families within the band have more than one generation playing in the band. We are a family orientated Grade 4 band that enjoy playing both social/community functions and competitions. This has allowed us to travel both within Australia and overseas (Scotland).
The band always welcome new members both learner and accomplished players. We offer free tuition (both pipes and drums) to anyone interested in joining the band. Private tuition is also available.
