The Sri Dasmesh Band also known as The Malaysian Sikh Band is the only Sikh band in South East Asia and one of the elite few Sikh bands in the world. The idea of creating a Sikh Pipe Band was born way back in 1988. We wanted to give the Sikh community and also Malaysian's something to be proud of and something the Sikhs can call our very own. From a small group of 15 members, it has today grown to about 40 plus members and continues to grow in strength and skill to become one of the leading bands not only in Malaysia but in South East Asia. Our members who are volunteers range from working professionals to university students and school going teenagers. The Band meets every Saturday from 4.00pm to 6.30pm at the Sri Dasmesh School in Kuala Lumpur for rehearsals. We are always looking for new members to join our fun music loving activity craving futsal playing pipe band family. So come on over and here is the best part.....The membership is Free!

We are back ! The band has landed ! Our tour of California was a roaring success ! We won the hearts of the Americans with our stunning uniforms and well rehearsed music . Our majestic band marched at San Jose , Freemont , Sacramento , Lodi , Stockton and El Sobrante. Although our tour schedule was packed with performances , the band managed to do some sight seeing . The band visited Lake Tahoe and San Francisco ( Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge and Fishermans Warf ) . The band sure helped the economy with the amount of shopping we did during our stay . We would like to thank the Sangat ( Sikh community ) of California for their warm hospitality and support . We look forward to visiting California again !
Of course this band trip wouldn't have been a sucess if not for the wonderful friends who helped us throughout our tour in Northern California. We Thank You from the bottoms of our Hearts.
