The MacIntosh Pipe Band, established as a parade band in the early 1980's, has grown from five members to nearly 30, and is a consistently strong grade IV and Grade V band on the west coast. The band was proud to be the 2000 Grade IV Champion of Champions in the Western United States Pipe Band Association (WUSPBA). In 2001 the band traveled to Scotland, taking a third place in Inverkeithing and placing well at the Bridge of Allen, the World's Championships in Glasgow, and in Perth.    

 

While the band is based in Marin County, just north over the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, the pipers, snare, tenor, bass drummers, dancers and drum majors come from six counties, as far north as Davis, south to San Jose, and east to Antioch.
Currently under the direction of Pipe Major Janice Richey and Drum Sergeant Robert Cameron, the band continues to thrive and bring its music to audiences from Puerto Vallarta, AT&T stadium, home of the Giants, St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco, just to name a few places..

 

from 2001 Trip to Scotland
The band is comprised of adult pipers and drummers, most of whom devote their spare time to fulfilling a lifelong dream of playing the Great Highland Bagpipes and drums. Traditional Highland dress, including kilts of the Ancient Hunting Mackintosh tartan, is worn when the band performs.
