We look forward to getting out and playing more this season. We’ve already made our return to Flesher Field in Oshtemo for band practice on Tuesday nights at 6 pm. The Dowagiac Memorial Day Parade is on for May 31st and the Kalamazoo Scottish Festival is on for September 11th in Parchment.

The modern Kalamazoo Pipe Band was founded in 1964 by Dr. John Beaton and others associated with the Upjohn Company who were interested in piping. The Kalamazoo Pipe Band is a non-profit organization involved in teaching and performing in the southwest Michigan area. We hold weekly piping and drumming and practices. The band participates in parades, festivals, and community events across the state of Michigan.
