The Band & Officers

Since its inception in 1996, Michael Collins Pipes & Drums has grown to a corps of over fifty talented musicians from all walks of life — each with a love of playing traditional Irish pipe music. With a mission of learning and playing great Celtic music and entertaining the public, the band performs often for regional events, including the St Patrick's Day Parade in Denver (one of the largest St. Patrick's Day Parades in the nation); various regional parades; Colorado Avalanche games; Denver Nuggets games; and numerous other civic and charitable events. Also a competitive band, the award-winning Michael Collins Pipes & Drums is a Grade IV member of the Western United States Pipe Band Association, and successfully competes throughout the region in parades and Highland games.
