WELCOME TO SCOTTISH BAGPIPER
My name is Ross Bates and I am available 7 days a week to play the bagpipes in Melbourne and country Victoria.
I have been playing the bagpipes as a soloist and in bands for the last 37 years and have a wealth of professional experience, including 15 years with the Victoria Police Pipe Band.
Amongst my achievements in piping:
With the Rats Of Tobruk Memorial Pipes & Drums, at the 2018 Basel Military Tattoo in Switzerland.

My fees are based upon the time required at the venue (excluding getting ready and packing up) and include any amount of piping within that time.
They are also inclusive of travelling costs for within the Melbourne metropolitan area.
If I was needed only at the end of a Wedding or Funeral, I would still need to arrive ahead of time, which would be a 30 minute charge.
Please note there is a $10 surcharge for CBD Parking.
Piping for a Wedding at Ace-Hi Ranch, Boneo.
WHY HIRE ME
The uniform worn will include the traditional Scottish kilt, in your choice of 6 tartans: Royal Stewart, Ramsay Blue, Hamilton Grey, MacKenzie and MacDonald, as illustrated below. Also available is the Murray Of Atholl tartan.
