TWIN CITIES METRO PIPE BAND
OUR BAND LEADERSHIP

P/M TAD MYERS
Pipe Major Tad Myers took up the pipes in 1988 at the ripe old age of 26. In 1998 he won both the MWPBA grade 1 light music and the Senior Piobaireachd Champion Supreme titles. That same year Tad earned the Senior Piping Certificate from the College of Piping.
Tad is a member of the board of the MWPBA and is a full piping judge. When he is not running the TCMetro Pipe Band or teaching piping students, he plays with the Grade 2 Greater Midwest Pipe Band in Battle Creek, Michigan.
Ender not only herds the band to the appropriate venues, but casts prime sideye when someone plays the wrong note or is egregiously out of tune.
