Hi, thanks for visiting our page....as you can see it is still under construction, ...so keep checking back for updates, I hope to have a bunch of cool stuff here soon
For starters, here is some information about the band: "White Peaks Centennial Pipe Band" is based in Payson, Utah. The tartan in our kilts is the American Bi-Centennial tartan. The background is an example of this tartan. There are several bands in Utah, but none within a reasonable weekly driving distance (with the exception of PHS's band and they are a school group). We decided that there were enough pipers and drummers in the area to start another pipe band. The band was put together in 1996 (Utah's Centennial year), several of the members are quite experienced (including past "Payson High School Pipe Band" members) and have played in other bands here in Utah and Washington. There are also some beginners that are doing extremely well, and are a great asset to the band. We competed this year in the Salt Lake Scottish Games, and took third place in our grade. We were only beaten by out of state bands. We march in 8 to 10 parades each summer, including Provo's "Freedom Festival Grand Parade". We are having a great time doing other performances and learning new music.
