Home / Band News / brace yourself — shenanigans are coming…


The high holy season of all things St. Patrick is upon us.  As we prepare to embrace the shenanigans – we wanted to take a moment to congratulate our band mom , ANNIE NICEwho is this year’s GRAND MARSHALL for the Raleigh St. Patrick’s Day Parade. We wish we could join you in celebrating Annie, but the beaches of South Carolina are calling.  There will be limited Wake and District appearances in the RDU over the weekend of the 10th – 13th.

A large contingent of the band is hitting the road Friday, 10 March to lead the 29th annual North Myrtle Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, 11 March; the parade steps off at 9:00 am.  After the parade skirl of the pipes and war beat of the drum will fill the Main Stage (at 12:45 pm).  Once finished, we continue our South Carolina tour on Hilton Head Island where we are honored to be a part of the 34th Annual Hilton Head Island St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday, 14 March at 3:00 pm.

We will be joined in Hilton Heady by our friends from the City of Charleston Pipe Band, Coastal Carolina Shields Pipe Band, Coastal Florida Police and Fire Pipe Band — and the lads from the Boston Police Gaelic Column Pipes and Drums.

We will be back in Raleigh for the high holy day (March 17th).  Here is a list of locations you can find us:
