What our clients are saying
Thank you so much for the gift of your wonderful Bagpiping music. It has always been a dream of mine to have bagpipes at my wedding. The music was wonderful and everyone loved it, especially my husband!
Alyson and Nathan Callahan
Thank you for the beautiful bagpipes at dad's service. Dad had always requested to have bagpipes and you fulfilled his wishes which gave comfort to our family.
You also gave us a smile when we heard "Hail to the Victors".
Ross Gallentine and family
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding! It was actually more perfect that my husband was surprised during the recessional (instead of the processional) because I was with him! You did a wonderful job and I'm so grateful - you really surprised everyone!
