NZ Pipe Bands

Pipe Bands unite people young and old the world over.
Discover a band in your area — see what we’re all piping on about!

The Royal NZ Pipe Bands' Association has been supporting  New Zealand bands since 1928.  From those early days, bands have grown in numbers and strength, and the level of performance has improved beyond belief.

The RNZPBA is managed by a small, dedicated team.  Our mission is simple - to promote pipe bands, and pipe band membership throughout NZ, by whatever means possible.
