To Join the HKStAPB
The Hong Kong St. Andrew's Pipe Band is one of the finest civilian pipe bands in Asia, led by a group of enthusiasts and competent players in the area.
In the past decade, members of the band have had lots of travelling opportunities, playing in Australia, England, Indoenisa, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Scotland, Singapore and of course hundreds of different places in Hong Kong and China. Many of the experiences were "once in a life time", and they made friends from around the world.
We are always recruiting for the future of the pipe band, and it is a great chance for bagpipe music lovers to start playing in a band. Experience is preferred but not necessary. If piper or drummer moving to Hong Kong, or you just wish to learn, please feel free to contact us. You may choose to become a:
Drummer (Bass / Tenor / Snare)
and some of the players may also wish to do Scottish dancing and other related arts.
HKStAPB is a non-profit making music group, you may need to spend a few hundred dollars to buy your own personal practice kit, and there is a small subscription. The band will lend you uniform items and instruments for performing occassions at the beginning, and some of the kit can be supplied by the band. So the main things you need to play with us are your time and enthusiasm.
Players can come to our weekly practice, usually on Wednesday night, currently in Kowloon Tong.
Apart from the exciting experience you can get from playing music and performing in front of crowds, we often organise overseas trips, BBQs, music camp, band visits, joint-band functions etc.
