Why book Capitol City Highlanders Pipe Band?

The Capitol City Highlanders Pipe Band, established in 1980, is the oldest pipe band in Austin, Texas. The band performs at a number of events for the Central Texas community, as well as attending highland games and other pipe band events and competitions.

Available for any occasion including weddings, funerals, parties, birthdays, festivals, and parades, the band is also open to beginning and experienced pipers and drummers and offers Scottish piping and drumming instruction. The band's members are as diverse as the people who enjoy listening to them and consist of men and women from age 8 to 60+! We are non-competitive and always looking to grow!


Nick Classen was amazing

We didn't book the entire ensemble for mother's funeral - just Nick Classen so this review is just for him. Nick was an absolute treasure. He was kind, very sympathetic and has over 50 years of experience playing so he knew exactly how the service would go and helped us select times & hymns that celebrated her life while at the same time not overpowering the rather simple, though lovely, service. It was sweltering but he didn't skip a beat though I know he must have been so hot in his outfit! He was so professional, kind and he played brilliantly and he knew just went what distance was most appropriate to play Amazing Grace during the service so that everyone's voices could be heard, as well as, the comforting melody. Thank you Nick. We are so grateful and blessed to have had you there.
