Pipe Band Results from New Zealand

Palmerston North hosted another fantastic pipe band competition this past weekend. Bands from all over New Zealand (and one from OZ) – travelled to Palmy to compete for the title.

The Manawatu band won the Grade 1 event overall.  The Canterbury Caledonian Pipe Band from Christchurch won the Grade 1 Medley and took 2nd place overall in the contest. Auckland and District Pipe Band, former National Champions, took third place.

The Canterbury Caledonian drum corps proudly played on their Premier HTS 800 Snare drums. Canterbury recently became the first  New Zealand pipe band to receive a drum endorsement from World famous Premier Percussion.
