Home / Band News / #OnIce…


On Saturday, 10 October 2015 – members of Wake and District helped usher in the NHL Carolina Hurricanes #Redvolution with the skirl of the pipes and war beat of the drums.  The band was #OnIce for the performance.  Solo piper Seth Wells and solo drummer Jacob Egen were center ice playing a rendition of Dawning of the Day – and the band joined in playing Scotland the Brave and Rowan Tree as the team coaches were announced.

Our Drum Major, Jason Lane, marched the team from their lockeroom – to the tunnel where they were announced.

Our sincere thanks to Jon Chase from the Carolina Hurricanes for bumping into the band 3 years ago at Woody’s pub in Raleigh – and for thinking of including Raleigh’s pipe band at a Carolina Hurricanes event.  We had a fantastic time – THANK YOU!

For the record — no one fell.
