The Transvaal Scottish Pipes & Drums has been around for a long while. Since 1902 in fact.

Of course, much has changed in all that time.

But what has remained constant and true is the band’s commitment to excellence. To being the best it can be. This determination has taken the band to the very top of the premier Grade 2 in the highly competitive South African pipe band circuit.

It’s seen the Grade 4 band promoted to Grade 3.

And it’s seen generations of pipers and drummers, of all ages and from all walks of life, commit passionately to the same goals and high standards.

‘The Jocks’, as the band is affectionately known, have performed at the Royal Tournament in London, in Russia at the Kremiln Zoria, at the largest tattoo in Europe in Basel, Switzerland, and several times at the South African Tattoo, including being the lead band in 2008 and 2012.
