Formerly Whangarei and County Pipe Band,  NorthCal would like to extend the warmest of welcomes to all persons who wish to visit.

The band was formed in 1936 as the Whangarei & County Pipe Band Society and renamed Northland Caledonian Pipe Band (NorthCal) in 2015 to encompass the area that we cover.

Championship had wins in Grade 2 in 1963 and 1985 and Grade 3 in 1998 and 2014.

The band still practices in our own Band Hall in Whangarei and is the only competing band north of the Auckland Harbour Bridge.

The band has had notable members such as Angus MacAulay, Stuart Finlayson, Lewis Turrell MBE, Merv Appleton, Brian Switalla, and Robert Turner.
