Bass Drummer Needed

Bass Drummer Wanted for a Pipe Band in Essex
Essex Caledonian Pipe Band are currently searching for a new Bass Drummer. Based in Chelmsford, Essex, it is a Grade 4 competition band, taking part in several contests a year (with regular wins and top 3 finishes), as well as the usual mix of carnivals, parades and other public and private engagements.
Although bagpipes are a world away from fifes and bugles, it is still a marching and display band, and many of the drummers are ex-corps of drums players. With around 20-25 members, they’re an easygoing bunch, and are always keen to welcome new members, from experienced players to interested beginners.
Practice takes place every Tuesday night at the Chelmer Valley High School in Chelmsford, although members are spread across the county.
If you’re interested in taking up the bass (or even tenor/snare drum) then please get in touch by emailing and you can read more about the band at
