The Bay of Plenty Pipes and Drums are a competing grade 4b Pipe Band based in Tauranga with members from all over the Bay of Plenty. We play often during the year for the community at Christmas Parades, community events and concerts as well as at Competitions.

Band members offer tuition to anyone who is eager and at any one time can have a number of youth and adults learning. Learning players are included in all band activities and can participate with the band in a variety of playouts. The band can provide a piper/pipers/drummers or the entire band for special events or celebrations

Our Tartan…


The band wears the MacGregor Modern Tartan which is also known as the “MacGregor Red and Green”
