The United States Air Force Pipe Band was originally organized as part of the United States Air Force Drum and Bugle Corps in 1950. In 1960 an independent Air Force pipe band was formed. The pipe band disbanded in 1970. Occasional pipe performances have since occurred as part of the United States Air Force Band.[1]

"Musicians with the Air Force Pipe Band, now an offshoot of the Band of the Air Force Reserve at Robins Air Force Base, Ga., share history and experiences with players like Mr. Jones that reach back six decades. Being in the Pipe Band, which traces its roots to the Air Force Drum and Bugle Corps of the 1950s, is different. Just ask those who've played the Bolling AFB, D.C., officers club cocktail parties for chiefs of staff and marched through Moscow's Red Square playing "Scotland the Brave.""
