MusicKnown as “War Pipes” the sound of Pipes and Drums can rally many hearts, uplifting spirits with marshalling music and parade marches. In Scotland 's fight for independence, England outlawed the Bagpipes because of the fierce pride they inspired, and their ability to fill Scotsman with courage. Today, the tradition is universal and not just for the Irish or Scottish. The pipes have come to be a distinguishing feature of a fallen hero's funeral, and marshal bands. The San Diego Firefighters' Pipes and Drums Band is comprised of all-volunteer fire service professionals whom practice and perform year-round primarily to honor our military, firefighter, police and other public safety agencies during funerals and memorials but also for our community at parades, graduations, and other special events. If you are an active or retired Firefighter living in the San Diego area and want to be part of this inspiring tradition contact us via email. No previous music ability is required, just a desire to carry on a fine tradition.
