Fred played my brother's wedding on July 17th. Yes, they married on a Wednesday, a Wednesday afternoon at that. Fred was excellent, he arrived early to get himself ready, met with the wedding planner and offered his advice on what would work best for the wedding ceremony. He is just overall fantastic. He led in the wedding procession and when he started up the mother of the bride burst into tears, everyone else commented on the goosebumps that he'd just evoked. He was an excellent addition to a beautiful ceremony. He even stayed past his scheduled time to pose for pictures with the couple. If I'm ever in need of a piper again, I will definitely be calling Fred.
