The Cape Atlantic Irish Pipe Brigade at one of their typical performance venues, a Jersey Shore boardwalk.

This is the official web site for the Cape-Atlantic Police and Fire Irish Pipe Brigade.

The band was established on March 21, 1994. We recruit band members from Police, Fire, Rescue and most other Public Service organizations. Since its inception, the band's popularity has been nothing short of phenomenal. In a geographical area where pipes were scarcely heard in 1994, pipers were suddenly requested everywhere. In the first three years alone over 179 appearances were made. The two huge annual Irish weekends of Project Children (June) and the Irish Fall Festival (September) have provided for much of our exposure to thousands of people.

Basic bagpipe and music instruction as well as drumming techniques are taught at each practice so there is no requirement to have these skills before joining the band. Other skills may be developed including pipe maintenance and tuning techniques.

Performance Availability: One piper or a complete ensemble. We can easily adjust the size of the band to fit your needs.
