The Okanagan Military Tattoo Society has announced that the Delta Police Pipe Band will be one of the headliners at the 2015 tattoo in July at Vernon’s Kal Tire Place.

“The directors of the Okanagan Military Tattoo Society are very pleased to have a band of this calibre attend the tattoo,” said OMT society president Norm Crerar.

“Following our highly successful inaugural tattoo in 2014 we promised the public that we would recruit world class bands and performers to future tattoos. Being able to secure a pipe band like the Delta Police Band means we are keeping that promise.”

The Delta Police Pipe Band was founded in 1971 and consists of 33  pipers and 22 drummers.  The band proudly represents the Delta Police Department and the Corporation of Delta at home and around the world.

The band had the ultimate honour of sharing the stage with Sir Paul McCartney and his band during their On the Run tour in front of 40,000 fans at Vancouver’s BC Place stadium.

The band performed Wings’ classic Mull of Kintyre with Sir Paul as part of his encore.

The Delta Police Pipe Band has performed at events around the world including 11 sold out shows at the  2009 Basel Tattoo in Switzerland, the Netherlands Tattoo in 2007, Virginia in 2006 and Germany in 2013.

The Okanagan Military Tattoo Society is currently in talks with several other regimental bands and both local and international groups, with more announcements on the tattoo lineup expected early in the new year.

Tickets for the July 25 and 26 Okanagan Military Tattoo are now on sale at the Ticket Seller at 250-549-7469, www.tickeseller.ca.
