I’m Steve Coyne. I’ve been playing the Bagpipes since 2001 all around the Chicagoland area in my off time from the Chicago Police Department.
From 2002-2011, I participated in the Chicago Police Departments Pipes and Drums (pdcpd.org), playing with fellow Officers to honor our fallen brothers and sisters as well as numerous other civil servant events.
I even appeared in the Batman: The Dark Knight movie as a piper in the funeral parade!
I play bagpipes at a handful of stair climbs, especially those that benefit First Responders and/or have a First Responder category. I have volunteered or have been requested to play at many of the opening ceremonies, so much so that I am now part of a non-profit organization that donates proceeds to charity: STEP UP & GIVE BACK. You can read more about those events at the website.
From 2011-2016, I was a member of the Bagpipes and Drums of the Emerald Society-Chicago Police Dept. (copsinkilts.com)
I also played with the hottest south side Irish cover band, Red Rebel County from 2011-2017. We covered Dropkick Murphy’s, The Real McKenzie’s and Flogging Molly. We also had our own tunes.
From 2020-2021, I filled in with the Chicago Garda Pipes & Drums for some local events. We even opened up for Gaelic Storm!! (https://www.chicagogardabagpipesanddrums.com/)
