The Pipeband Club (PBC) is a leading competitive pipe band based in Sydney, Australia. PBC has a relatively short but rich history of competing in all grades of solo and band competitions, both domestically and abroad, and draws members from not only New South Wales, but many parts of Australia and even overseas. Amongst our past results, the band boasts back to back Australian Champions titles (Grade 1) in 2008 and 2010, and continues to compete overseas at least once a year.

The band, led by Pipe Major Angus Roberts, and new Drum Sergeant Scott Miller, has a strong commitment to the development of junior and aspiring players. Our practice venues include The Western Suburbs Australian Football Club in Croydon Park, and The Scots College, in eastern Sydney, which is an ideal location for current and ex-students of the college to further their piping and drumming with PBC, taking them beyond the scope of their musical education within the well-respected Scots College Pipes & Drums. This source of new talent is an important part of the band's overall strategy to ensure long-term survival and to keep the art-form alive and well in Australia. Many of our former players have progressed to become members of some of the very best pipe bands in the world!

The Pipeband Club holds the long-term aim to regain and maintain its dominance as Australia's best pipe band, and to ultimately represent the country once again on the world stage. As former finalists in the Grade 1 World Championships, we know what it takes to get to the top and all our activities are geared towards this goal. Despite the unique challenges faced by pipe bands in Australia, the Pipeband Club remains a bastion of this unique and historic art-form in Australia.

The band is always on the look-out for new recruits who have experience at competing at a Grade 3 level or higher. We're a friendly team incorporating members of all ages and backgrounds, brought together by a common love of piping and drumming and a desire to succeed. Interested players are encouraged to visit a Thursday night practice session, or contact the Pipe Major or Drum Sergeant for more information.
