Bills participation at my brothers memorial service was incredible and created such an awesome environment. It can't get any better than an expert bagpiper playing Amazing Grace. His knowledge of memorial service edicate was extremely helpful to me. I do feel bad for Bill because it was so cold and him standing in his formal attire must have been difficult. My only regret was that I forgot to get a joint picture with him, such an opportunity missed. In closing, Bill was highly professional very punctual, adhered to my expectations; there were no surprises only pleasant memories.....thank you again Sharon

Piper Major Bill was perfect for my godparent's 50th wedding anniversary! He was super helpful on coordination as this was a surprise party. The guests loved him and my godparents can't stop talking about it! We were so thrilled to have him join the party! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a bagpiper.
