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.
