Scottish Fest in Costa Mesa

Our 4th Hihgland Games of the season, Las Vegas Pipe Band will compete at Scottish Fest in Costa Mesa as well - come say hello!

The pipe band contest consists of pipe bands in one of four grades, grade 1, the most experienced grade, through grade 4, the least experienced. Grades 1 through 3 play two different types of contests, the harder MSR (think Figure Skating compulsories) and the Medley (think Figure Skating freestyle program). In the MSR, each band must play a March, a Strathspey, and a Reel to demonstrate their technical skill. In the medley, each band can play what type of tunes they like, from marches, reels and hornpipes, to slow airs and retreats to display not only their technical skill, but artistic skill as well. In Grade 4 bands play the medley and the Quick March Medley instead of the MSR, which consists of a collection of marches in any time signature.

Prescott Highland Games at “Loch Watson”

Las Vegas Pipe Band is the host band for this year's Highland Games in Prescott Arizona!

For many Highland games festival attendees, the most memorable of all the events at the games is the massing of the pipe bands. Normally held in conjunction with the opening and closing ceremonies of the games, as many as 20 or more pipe bands will march and play together. The result is a thunderous rendition of Scotland the Brave or Amazing Grace, and other crowd-pleasing favourites.

It is, in fact, the music of the bagpipe which has come to symbolize music at the Games and, indeed, in Scotland itself. In addition to the massed bands, nearly all Highland games gatherings feature a wide range of piping and drumming competition, including solo piping and drumming, small group ensembles and, of course, the pipe bands themselves.
