About Us

The St. Andrew's Pipes & Drums of Tampa Bay is one of the largest, oldest established bagpipe bands in the Southeast. Most of our members live in Pinellas and nearby counties, and many come down from Canada and northern U.S. for the winter. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

St. Andrew's is a performance and entertainment bagpipe band based in Largo, Florida. We perform for public and private events, focusing on the traditional and popular Scottish, Irish, and American tunes that are familiar to many. You won't find us at piping competitions, but we do make appearances at Highland games as a host band, or in an entertainment role. We have performed with the Chieftains when they are in town! SAPD

What We Do

We perform for many military veteran events, as well as church events, memorial services, holiday parades, and gala events.


We are available for your special occasion, memorial service, church event - any occasion where the ceremony of the pipes and drums would enhance your event and make it truly memorable. We can also provide individual pipers for weddings, funerals, Scottish and Irish holidays, birthdays, and office events. If you would like to hire the band or an individual piper for your event, go to the CONTACT page and send us a message.

At this site you can explore many aspects of the band's current events and history. Use the top menu bar to view photos and videos of recent performances by the band (the GALLERY link), see the band's CALENDAR of upcoming performances with driving directions, and look at our REPERTOIRE

On the JOIN page, you will find our practice schedule and directions to our practice hall. Give us a "shout" from the CONTACT page to let us if you would like to come to a practice, and to insure that we are practicing on the night you want to come.
