Founded in 1966, the Zor Shrine Pipes and Drums has long been regarded as the jewel of the Zor Shrine marching units, and is one of the most impressive units of the Zor Shrine, easily recognized by our Highland Scottish military-inspired uniforms. We proudly wear the traditional red and green "Cummings Hunting" tartans, as well as other authentic Scottish regalia.
Throughout Wisconsin, and the Midwest, Zor Shrines Pipes and Drums unit is one of the most highly regarded and respected Highland bagpipe and drum units around. In 2007, we became only the second American band in the over 40 year history of the Midwest Shrine Association to be named champions for the marching pipes and drums competition! We are a fixture in many South Central Wisconsin parades, community festivals, and other special events, and would love to help make your event a rousing success.
As a proud part of the Zor Shrine, our members are devoted Freemasons and Shriners, and as such, devote our time and efforts toward the common goal of helping children by supporting "The World's Greatest Philanthropy" - the Shriners Hospitals for Children. This past year, the Pipes and Drums unit contributed nearly $50,000.00 to help the Shriners Hospitals, and our goal is to be able to give even more this year! Take a moment to look at the website for the Shiners Hospitals for Children, and you will no doubt be greatly moved by the effect that the services provided by our hospitals has on not only the children, but also the families that are served by this organization. You will find our members actively participating in various events and with various organizations within their communities, and if you should ever want to know more about being a Shriner, feel free to ask them, they'd love to talk to you about it!
Listen to the skirl of the pipes as the Zor Shrine Pipes and Drums unit proudly performs many traditional favorite Scottish and Irish tunes, as well as some new favorites like "The Marine Hymn", "Highland Cathedral", and "On Wisconsin", and you will no doubt fall in love with the rousing tunes and high energy as we have ourselves!
