Coastals Welcome New Players

Coastals are welcoming both new members and guest players to join our ranks for the upcoming Australian Championships.

If you’re looking for an alternative, or the experience of playing with another band as a guest player, Coastals would welcome you to our team.

The required commitment is flexible (life is busy sometimes, and guest players home band will always come first!), all we ask is you approach the team and the music with a positive attitude, and share our culture of mutual respect.

Guest players to date have enjoyed their time with the band and made valuable friendships while playing good tunes to the best of our collective ability. Don’t just take our word for it, currently our band has players from other local bands including: the pipe major of the City of Rockingham Pipe Band, and the Pipe Sgt of Perth Highland Pipe Band. Interstate and international players that have joined the band have included players from SA NSW, QLD, New Zealand Red Hackle and Auckland and Districts Pipe bands.

Our philosophy is that music should be enjoyable and competitions help provide that enjoyment when we play the best we can, but at the end of the day this is a hobby, and it’s not playing for sheepstations!

Decision making in our band is by consensus, and definitely not a top down approach, all members have an equal voice.

Financial commitment: Should you wish to be a financial member of the band, and be accepted as a playing member, all equipment will be provided, including uniforms, reeds, pipe bags etc… all you’ll need to pay for are your shoes. Annual fees are below $200!
