Welcome to the official website of the Los Gatos Pipes and Drums and the
Santa Clara County Sheriff's Pipes and Drums!
Under the guidance of former Pipe Major Jay
Tuttle, the Los Gatos Pipes and Drums was formed on September 25,
2001, with the mission of representing the Los Gatos - Monte Sereno Police
Department in various community events throughout the Bay Area. Comprised of
both civilian volunteers from the local community and surrounding law
enforcement agencies, the Band grew to its current size of 40 plus
volunteers. Members range in age from 14 to 80. Approximately two thirds of
the band are pipers; one third are drummers.
In 2011, the Band was invited
by Sheriff Laurie Smith to become a part of the
The Pipes and Drums of the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office, and performs for that agency's events as well as
numerous other local fire and police agencies.
The Band prides itself on performing at various community activities
throughout the Bay Area. Performance highlights include a pre-show concert
for Rod Stewart at HP Pavilion on March 15, 2007, and a Coca-Cola commercial
that ran during spring of 2006. Over the past few years, the Band has
performed an average of 45 events per year. Highlights of these annual
performances include: the Los Gatos Christmas Parade, San Jose Christmas
Parade, San Francisco Fleet Week, 4th of July and Veteran's Day Parades,
Fallen Peace Officer Memorials, and Pleasanton Scottish Highland Gathering
