Stone Mountain Highland Games 2017 - Host Band
John Mohr MacKintosh Pipes & Drums (JMMPD) is a performance and Grade V competition pipe band, with a Grade IV pipe band currently under development. The band has performed throughout the Southeastern United States for well over a third of a century since it was founded in 1977.
Those familiar with this dynamic group know of their reputation for remarkable showmanship, competitive spirit, and dedication to performing the timeless music of the pipes and drums. JMMPD’s numerous performance credits include spots on radio and television, parades, ceremonies, and special events for cities, associations, and private interests. For sixteen years, JMMPD was a featured participant in the Stone Mountain Military Tattoo and has performed as host band for the Stone Mountain Highland Games in Stone Mountain, Georgia for fifteen years.
Wearing the brilliant red MacKintosh tartan, JMMPD proudly bears the name of eighteenth-century adventurer Captain John Mohr MacKintosh, whose exploits are recorded in the chronicles of early-American colonial history. The band is proud to be a member of the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association, and of its close affiliations with Clan MacKintosh, the Stone Mountain Highland Games, and the Creek Indian Nation. The band is currently under the musical direction of Pipe Major M.L. Loudermilk.
The band welcomes both beginning and advanced pipers and drummers of all levels, and meets weekly for instruction and rehearsal in the Atlanta, GA area.
