MRPF | Mobile
The Manchester Regional Police and Fire Pipe Band (MRPF), is located in central Connecticut. Established in 1953, the band was patterned after the tradition of the great Scottish military regiments and continues these traditions by wearing a military-style uniform and sporting the Hunting Stewart tartan. MRPF keeps a rigorous parade schedule throughout the year and attends memorial services for both police officers and firefighters regularly. The band has gained recognition for performing with such names as Black 47 and the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, as well as participating in Military Tattoos both in Switzerland and Germany.
MRPF maintains an active year-round training program and supports the efforts of a competition unit. Those interested in learning the pipes and drums, or performing with the band, may apply at any time.
