Richmond County Pipes and Drums is a registered 501(c)3 not for profit organization.  We are a family orientated, community band based in Staten Island. The organization was founded in 1976 with several guiding principles that has made the band successful for more then 40 years. The most important principle is to further and encourage the study and practice in the arts of piping and drumming, its proper execution and its rituals and traditions. Secondary to this guiding principle is to foster a spirit of mutual respect, friendship and camaraderie among band, its respective members, friends and supporters.

We are always looking for new members to join us. The band offers FREE piping and drumming lessons. Beginners are always welcome, all we ask is that you like to have fun and are willing to participate in community activities throughout the year but especially during the month of March. We participate in events mainly  in Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Long Island and New Jersey.
