The Grey & Simcoe Foresters Volunteer Pipes & Drums Band was re-formed in February 2009 to support the Regiment in both the Barrie and Owen Sound Garrisons. Comprising of volunteer members the band wears the Hunting Stewart Tartan.
Additionally the Pipes and Drums provide musical support on ceremonial occasions to other Military units and Cadet Corps.
Pipe band performances promote the military ethos, high morale, esprit de corp, and thus foster operational effectiveness.
The Pipe Band are also a very effective element of the community outreach program, designed to enhance relations with the civilian community, making Canadians aware of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Foresters.
31st Grey Regiment
From 1924 until the 31st Greys and 35th Simcoe Foresters were amalgamated in 1936 to form The Grey and Simcoe Foresters, there was an active Pipe Band in the county. Under the leadership of Sgt J Maclaren Leslie (Pipe Major) of Leith the band took part in Regimental activities and soldier's reunions in the area. It appears this band wore the MacKenzie tartan.
