Very professional! he showed up early, played in the rain, and stayed during the service to play at the end. Would definitely recommend to friends.
The Saffron Kilts Pipe Band (Now the Saffron United Pipe Band) is one of the most well known bands in the eastern United States. Based in Babylon, New York the band was originally formed in 1962 by a small group of enthusiast within the AOH Div# 2 in Babylon. This also makes the band one of the oldest in the Tri-State area. The Bands first Pipe Major, Matt Close was very focused on providing an atmosphere to cultivate and challenge younger players. This he figured was our future, a future that has guided the band to excel at every level of competition and performance. As winners of numerous championships and awards, the band is the most consistent winner in the competitive arena. The Band also holds the record for winning the prestigious Fr. O'Callaghan award 14 times as the best pipe Band in the NY City St. Patrick's Day parade. Our goal is to continue to raise our level of expectation with regard to sound, music, execution and appearance.
