He currently plays with the NCSU Pipes and Drums Grade 3 (upper-level) band.

He is available for weddings, funerals, private parties, and all other events that would be enhanced by the pipes.

I could not have been more pleased with our experience. Mr. Wright was easy to work with and accommodating. He exceeded my expectations and made my dad's birthday very special. He is quite talented, knowledgeable, experienced and professional. He took the time to play our requests and answer our questions. I would highly recommend him. His performance brought tears to our eyes and made a special day even more so. This was my first experience with Gigmasters and I would not hesitate to use again or recommend.
