In addition to delicous food and drink, the Salem Professional Firefighters Pipes & Drums will again make an appearance at Bentley’s Grill at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. as part of their annual Pub Crawl in and around downtown Salem, OR. Decked in full kilt regalia, this Great Highland bagpipe and Highland pipe-band style drumming band never disappoints.
The annual Salem Professional Firefighters Pipes & Drum St. Patty’s Day Pub Crawl has been a favorite local tradition since the organization launched in 2008. The purpose of the organization is to support the Salem Professional Firefighters by performing at parades, memorials, fire department functions, and other civic and community events as requested.
All of the musicians are Salem firefighters, but it is not an official function of the fire department. And none of them knew how to hold a bagpipe, let alone play one, when they joined the corps.“Our main mission, though, is to honor firefighters and public-service officers through their promotions, graduations from the firefighting academy, retirements and memorials,” says Station No. 4 Battalion Chief Cord Von Derahe in this Statesman Journal article.
See them here on St. Patrick’s Day March 17, 2016 (see schedule below).
