Fred Payne was sensational. Every single person at our St. Helena, CA wedding (165 people) was blown away by this surprise. I had Fred play the Highland Cathedral on the bagpipes as a solo after the bridesmaids walked down the aisle. It was a total surprise that no one expected. Everyone's jaws dropped. I then followed Fred Payne with my father down the aisle after he had walked down by himself. At the end of the wedding, for the recessional, he played Scotland the Brave and it gave everyone chills. Best idea ever! He was PERFECT in everyway! Would recommended him to everyone!!!

Fred was a big help to us on this special day. He was available on very short notice and guided me to provide a very dignified tribute to my father. If there were any way to thank him more than with this comment I would. His music stirs the Scottish blood in the whole family and we are very grateful for his service.

Fred was absolutely wonderful. His beautiful playing and his elegance were a wonderful musical interlude and pause at the midpoint of our son and his wife's wedding reception. Fred was easy to work with for arranging the event and accommodating our musical preferences. He is an expert musician and we were so happy that he was here.
