In 2011 the band worked with a local Raleigh designer, Joel Perrego of VAST DESIGN on branding the band. We told Joel and his team we are a public safety bagpipe and drum band with a mission to provide a distinguishing tribute for our fallen comrades and to be in service to the families of public safety employees of the Raleigh region and across North Carolina. We desire to strengthen relations between the protective services and the public while preserving cultural heritage and enriching our community by providing the highest tradition of Bagpipe and Drum music. Our motto >> FOR OUR FALLEN.
Vast Design helped Wake and District understand who we are through a creative, strong and humble design which speaks volumes. The mark consists of the letters F-O-F, For Our Fallen, making the shape of a shield. The checkered Battenburg pattern is traditional and worn by the band members. The mark represents everything Wake & District stands for, “For Our Fallen”.
Wake and District is honored to be “Raleigh’s Pipe Band“. Since our formation in 2006, members of the band have participated in numerous City functions including Police and Fire graduation and award services, City Council ceremonies — and other stately events hosted by the City of Oaks. We’re privileged to be in service to North Carolina’s Capital City; our home town.
Our mission remains steadfast. We continue to improve piping and drumming quality, culture and tradition in the region; we will not compromise people and the art.
