Born in 1989, Dries started piping in 2001 with his local 4b band Antwerp Metropolitan Pipe Band. He moved to Antwerp & District Pipe Band in 2005 and took over Antwerp Metro in 2011 as pipe major, competing for the first in 2013 at the World Pipe Band Championships, where they finished 11th in the final, out of 65 bands in total.

Meanwhile Antwerp & District was promoted to grade 2 after a second place at the British Championships in Annan in 2011, Went to play for 101 Regt. Pipe Band in 2014, under PM Craig Noble. After a successful year the band was promoted to grade 2 before the bands disbandment in 2015.

This  is my first season in grade 1, so very excited for what will come.
