KEMPTON PARK PIPE BAND

Welcome to the Kempton Park Pipe Band.

History

In late 2008 a hand-full of enthusiastic people got together and decided to form a new pipe band on the East Rand.  There were essentially two competent pipers and one bass drummer. Practising on a Saturday morning in a small class room at a local church, they trained up a small pipe band which had its first performance in March 2009 at Mugg & Bean, Festival Mall.

Tutors

Reg Simpson is the pipe major.  He is a full time, professional piper and committed to building up the band.  He is assisted by Cole Harrup, who hails from Zimbabwe. Cole trains the beginner pipers who practise on a chanter.

Jonathan Cape is the lead drummer.  He has many years experience playing the side drum in first class bands - Transvaal Scottish Pipes & Drums.

Mike Pheiffer is the bass section tutor. He has played since his school days for the Pretoria Highlanders and Transvaal Scottish. He also coaches the drum major.

Playing instruments

The pipe band has five side drums and a set of bass section drums. (Bass section is the one bass drum and two tenor drums).

The playing pipers own their own bag pipes. Through fund raising efforts, we have purchased the drums and pipes where necessary.

Band Practice

The official band practice is on a Saturday morning from 09h00 11h00 at the Kaleideo Campus 18 Albatross Street, Rhodesfield (Next to KCR motorcycles).

Management

The Kempton Park Pipe Band has been properly constituted with a constitution. The band is lead by Reg Simpson and Jonathan Cape.  They are assisted by Mike Pheiffer (marketing) and Pat Rennie (treasurer).
