Saffron United Pipe Band Honors Medical Heroes

The Saffron United Pipe Band (SUPB) from Suffolk County’s Division 2 in Babylon had the honor of playing for the heroic doctors and nurses at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip on Tuesday, May 5, 2020.  The band, led by Pipe Major John Henderson, is based in Babylon and was originally formed in 1962 by a small group of bagpipe music enthusiasts from around the area and within the Babylon AOH. SUPB grew to being a competition worthy band and nearing it’s 60th anniversary, it is one of the oldest pipe bands in the Tri-State area.  View/download a video of the band’s hospital performance.
