Though relatively new to Gigmasters, Pipe Major Eric Landau brings over 20 years' experience to your event. As the Phoenix-based principal bagpiper at Bagpipes of Amazing Grace he is your Arizona piper for all celebratory, ceremonial and solemn occasions --

Performed solo before Arizona's governors, senior U.S. senator, at Vietnam Wall ceremonies, for organizations ranging from the Congressional Medal of Honor Society to the Arizona Funeral Directors Association, in televised Christmas concerts and for 400,000 people lining the Fiesta Bowl parade route. Played in opening act for the Black Watch on Tour, at the Phoenix Open, and at annual observances of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, International Association of Firefighters and National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Present and past pro bono performance history includes long-standing service as pipe major (pipe band leader/musical director) and enrolled honor guard bagpiper for ten police and fire departments, US military and veterans organizations as well as for numerous annual American Cancer Society Relays for Life. Graduate, Balmoral School of Piping, whose faculty includes many of the world's greatest teaching bagpipers.

Bagpipes

Offering a full selection of wedding ceremonial choices and appropriate music for all solemn occasions, with a varied repertoire of Scottish and Irish tunes plus popular American patriotic music. See representative tune list under "Songs" below.

Performing on a beautifully hand-engraved, polished-silver adorned Great Highland Bagpipe by David Naill, favored pipe maker of world champion soloists, or on my antique set by legendary maker Peter Henderson.

Soft Parlor Pipes are available for quiet venues, while the amplified Electronic Bagpipe can bring down the house!

Numerous video and audio clips, recorded on both the Great Highland Bagpipe and the Soft Parlor Pipes, are accessible above.

Kilted Attire

Appearing in Highland dress options ranging from formal to casual, or in traditional kilted military attire.

Professional Standards

I am available seven days a week. Event planning meetings and personal auditions are encouraged, with never a charge.

Another piper won't unexpectedly appear in my place, nor will I impose my personal preparation or tuning upon your venue. Instead, I will arrive on time, ready to perform, as we will have discussed and as you expect.

I firmly believe that my clients deserve nothing less than total professionalism, delivered with a personal touch!

Solemn Occasions

There is no higher calling for a piper than to help comfort the bereaved with bagpipe music. The piper traditionally begins and ends the funeral, committal, memorial service or celebration of life and leads all casket processionals. Piper Eric has performed at many hundreds of solemn occasions, also playing the quiet parlor pipes during visitations and wakes. Consultation with a family member helps insure that each tune reflects family preferences, traditions and is just what's desired to honor your loved one. When planning a solemn occasion or any other event, please call (without obligation) to discuss how bagpiping may be utilized appropriately and to best effect.

Weddings

Piper Eric has helped bring joy to over a hundred weddings, most often performing the ceremonial music itself. Parlor pipes are perfect for a prelude medley to settle the guests down during final seating, and perhaps later to accompany a unity candle-lighting, sand ceremony or handfasting. A stately march played on the Great Highland Bagpipe announces the entry and continues for the advance of each wedding party member. Next, the bride's entrance is heralded by her own chosen processional. At the conclusion, a spirited recessional tune for the couple's or the entire wedding party's exit completes the ceremony on a celebratory and upbeat note of excitement and exuberance!

We were so happy that we had Eric Landau perform at our wedding. From the get go, Eric was very thorough in in all aspects of his performance. He gave us complete flexibility on our song choices whilst providing great recommendation. Eric even has a number of pipers outfits that he lets you choose for your event. Any questions we had, Eric was very prompt in his swift reply over phone or email, he really made it an ease free process. Most importantly our guests were blown away by Eric's performance and had some of our guests in tears of joy. Eric performed for one hour meaning his performance carried through to our cocktail hour. I give Eric 5 stars out of 5!

Sean, thank you for the detailed review! It was my pleasure to plan the bagpipe musical segments for the wedding ceremony and start of the cocktail hour with you and Cassie, exclusively utilizing selected Irish tunes to reflect your heritage. I'm also happy to learn that my performance was so well received by your guests. I hope that you and Cassie have a wonderful life together! -- Pipe Major Eric Landau

We were especially pleased with Eric in his flexibility to our schedule. We originally had given him the wrong timeframe and that caused a potential conflict. Eric worked with us and a compromise was set up that worked beautifully. Without hesitation, we would recommend Eric and Bagpipes of Amazing Grace.

Thanks very much for the favorable review. It was a privilege to be entrusted with the bagpiping for your son's funeral. In my opinion, there is no higher calling for a bagpiper than to professionally provide a measure of musical solace for the bereaved. -- Pipe Major Eric Landau
