Above and beyond! Daniel was such an amazing bagpipist. He came all the way out to the furthest point of Treasure Island, Florida beach in the rain dressed in full, traditional funeral plaid and was willing to perform in the rain at the beach at the memorial service for my father. The rain cleared, the waves were crashing and he played not 1, but 3 songs, plus played as he walked all the way back to his car! Not to mention, he was the nicest guy. He even thanked us for letting him be a part of our memorial. He took what was supposed to be a somber occasion and made it special. Do yourself a favor, hire this man for your event, he's an amazing musician!

Daniel was professional, courteous and most of al very entertaining. We would have been happy with just what we asked for, but Daniel provided us more than we expected, helping the family to laugh and share memories as if he was a part of the family. An excellent choice for anyone looking for excellent piping as well as excellent character!
