Home / Band News / do you have the spirit…


On April 1, 2015 — the Wake and District Public Safety Pipes and Drums and the City of Atlanta Pipe Band put out a fake (April Fools’) press release:   “The premier pipe bands of the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association Southern Branch (the City of Atlanta Pipe Band and Raleigh’s Wake and District Pipe Band) are pleased to announce the merger of their two organizations into one — the “RalAnta” Spirit of the South Pipe Band (#SoS) – competing in Grades 5, 4, 3 and 2 in the Southern EUSPBA branch and beyond…” 



We felt we should leverage the interest and hype by actually creating the Spirit of the South t-shirt mentioned in the full (fake) press release — and direct all funds raised to to help young and aspiring pipers and drummers from our EUSPBA Southern Branch — further their pipe/drum educations.

The Wake and District Pipe Band will match every dollar raised – creating a scholarship for young EUSPBA Southern Branch pipers/drummers.
