I HAVE BEEN A BAGPIPER SINCE 2001. I PLAYED WITH THE PIPES & DRUMS OF THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR 10 YEARS AND THE BAGPIPES & DRUMS OF THE EMERALD SOCIETY-CHICAGO POLICE DEPT. FOR 5 YEAR. I RECENTLY DECIDED TO BAGPIPE ON MY OWN. I DO HAVE OTHER BAGPIPERS AND DRUMMERS IF I AM NOT AVAILABLE OR IF ADDITIONAL BAGPIPERS OR DRUMMERS ARE REQUESTED. I HAVE PLAYED NUMEROUS EVENTS OVER THE PAST 12+ YEARS AND HAVE AN EXTENSIVE TUNES (SONG) LIST.

I CURRENTLY BAGPIPE WITH RED REBEL COUNTY. WE ARE AN IRISH ROCK BAND THAT PRIMARILY COVERS DROPKICK MURPHYS, FLOGGING MOLLY, THE REAL MCKENZIES AND OTHERS. WE ALSO HAVE OUR OWN ORIGINAL SONGS.

I AM AVAILABLE FOR WEDDINGS, FUNERALS, BIRTHDAYS, RETIREMENT PARTIES, PROMOTIONAL EVENTS, MILITARY HOMECOMING/SEND-OFFS AND HOLIDAYS. BAGPIPES ARE NOT JUST FOR THE IRISH OR SCOTTISH AS I'VE PLAYED SPECIAL EVENTS FOR MANY DIFFERENT NATIONALITIES. I DO PLAY SEVERAL SONGS ON THE BAGPIPES WITH ROCK BAND SUCH AS AC/DC'S LONG WAY TO THE TOP.

HERE IS MY TUNE LIST

I try to keep this list updated. If you don't see a tune listed here, please ask. Tunes are listed by category and with other tune(s) that I normally play in a set. This doesn't mean sets can't be broken up or re-categorized. Please, if requesting a tune or tunes, let me know ahead of time. Some tunes or sets are not played on a regular basis and not all pipers plays each of these tunes or sets. By requesting the music ahead of time, I can ensure the piper(s) will be ready to play your requests.
