BACKGROUND:
I am a piper with 17+ years experience. I played with McGuire's Pipe Band in Pensacola, Fl for the first 15 of those years (Photos #11&12) and, for the last two, have relocated to the Fredericksburg, Va. area.

He was amazing!!! He was very responsive by email, made sure he knew exactly what we wanted, talked to our coordinator about all logistics ahead of time, and most importantly, at the wedding..he blew everyone away! Our guests are still talking about him. In addition to piping while everyone was arriving, he escorted our groom and groomsmen to the altar and he surprised the groom (per my request) by playing Star Wars, and my groom got a STANDING OVATION!!! Not only is he really talented, he was kind to our guests, and he sweetly bought and tied ribbons around his bagpipe in our wedding colors to match the bridesmaids (unprompted by us). What a sweet and talented man!

J.R. was amazing at my husband's funeral at Arlington National Cemetery and so supportive and respectful of our family all along the way. He reached out to us very early to offer suggestions and work with me to select music that would be meaningful to us. He kept in touch by email frequently and reached out to confirm contact numbers prior to the service. I didn't have any concerns about his reliability. His piping was beautiful and his attire amazing. He had the Navy flag attached to his bagpipe, which was a wonderful touch. His salute to my husband was a much appreciated sign of respect. I strongly recommend him for services at Arlington. P. Wirth

When JR was standing on the hill above the grave location and started playing amazing grace and began walking down the hill with his bagpipes, we were all transported to a hillside in Scotland. He is the real thing.
