This is a listing of the Airmen that performed with the United States Air Force Pipe Band. Some of these men were also performing members of the USAF Drum & Bugle Corps, of which the Pipe Band was an integral part from inception through 1960.
In 1960 the Pipe Band became a separate and distinct unit of the USAF Band, and the men that performed with the band in that configuration are listed with Italicized font.
Some of the names will appear as links which will lead you to a more detailed biography of that particular Airman. Many members of the band have gone on to become respected educators and performers in the world of Drum Corps and Pipe Bands, and have gained worldwide acclaim.
