The Maine Public Safety Pipe & Drum Corps will provide our services free of charge for all public safety personnel funerals and memorials (line of duty deaths and non-duty related deaths for active and retired personnel) and for active duty military personnel killed in action.
We are also available for any other event including parades, graduations, weddings*, private parties, and funerals. You may hire the entire band, a single piper, or any combination of pipers and drummers. *Requests for single pipers for weddings will be passed onto our pipers and then all communication/hiring will be done between the customer and the individual piper.
Uniforms, instruments, operating costs, and travel expenses are all significant costs and the Corps is dependent on its performance fees to cover these expenses. Therefore, the Corps may charge a small fee to cover expenses for public safety/civic events such as academy graduations, ceremonies, memorials, etc.
All booking and general inquiries are welcome. Please, contact Events Coordinator Brian Young for more information.
