The year is 2015. Buffalo, New York, is poised for glory. With its booming identity resurgence and newly electrified Pipe Band scene, Buffalo is ready for a Grade 3 competitive pipe band.
On September 3rd, 44 pipers and drummers representing 8+ bands respond to an outreach for dedicated and vibrant individuals ready to raise their collective musical bar. The new band is formed and in the ensuing month arrangements are made to secure a suitable practice site, music is distributed and an educational schedule is announced. So the real story begins.
In October 2016 the Buffalo Bagpipe Band Club snare drum outreach program will be starting a new mentoring session. Classes will be based at various locations in the Southern Tier of NY, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse. There is no charge for this mentoring program, but donations to the BBBC uniform and instrument fund will be gratefully accepted.
If you or your band is interested in participating, please contact Tom Foote via email. firstname.lastname@example.org
