Pipe Band and Solo Registrations Now Due!

SPBA members are now able to register online for the 2021 season.

Whether or not there is a full slate of events in 2021, we will still be able to support our bands with the community band grants. Soloists will not have to pay for a grading card this year, but we do encourage you to apply for one for the sake of continuity, and report online and other contest results.
