The Pipe Band was formed in the Fall of 2001 by a few members with the mission of putting together a fun marching band for the Irish American Club, East Side. The Band continues to grow, currently boasting a roster of over 30 members and students. The musicians in the band share the same desire of promoting our culture and heritage playing traditional bagpipe music while proudly representing the club.
Since our inception, the band has performed at Irish festivals in the Cleveland area, as well as many parades and club events. The band plays year round and we look forward to seeing club members and new friends in the future. We offer piping and drumming lessons at the club.
The uniform the band has chosen is unique in appearance and style. The Tartan of the kilt is Ancient MacLeod of Harris, which is complemented with Lovat Green jackets.
