$175 - $300 per event
I began piping in May 1964. Since that time, I have played in six pipe bands in New York, New Jersey, Virginia and Pennsylvania. I have competed in both pipe band and solo piping competitions throughout the Eastern United States. I have received piping instruction from many champion pipers, including Pipe Majors Angus MacDonald and Linden Ingram of the Scots Guards, and Pipe Major John Sprague.

Between 1987 - 2003, I played on Long Island with the Nassau County Police Pipe Band. On a number of occasions, this band won first place in the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City. Between 2010 - 2016, I played with the City of Alexandria Pipes & Drums in Virginia. I also played tenor drum and bugle with this band. Having moved to Pennsylvania in 2015, I currently play with the Kiltie Band of York, a traditional Scottish regimental-style pipe band.

I have played at numerous solo piping events over the years, including weddings, funerals, memorials, birthdays and other special functions. I specialize in both Scottish and Irish piping tunes. I am able to tailor my performance to the requirements of the event. I also play Scottish Smallpipes for indoor events. I specialize in wearing military-style dress, but can appear in formal black-tie or daywear dress. I am very flexible, and clients are always impressed with my professionalism and presentation.

Gus went above and beyond what we expected. He did everything to make sure the bride and groom had a SPECIAL day from letting them pick his attire to searching a particular song they wanted and learning it. He could not have done more to add that unique twist to their day. I would HIGHLY recommend Gus. He even went out of his way to check out the church to make sure the pipes would not be too much for the small church. His piping added to the IRISH wedding and the couple as well as guests loved it. I would strongly recommend Gus and would have him play for us again in a second! THANK YOU GUS!

Gus Person did an absolutely outstanding job playing at our wedding ceremony. I cannot say enough good things about him as a professional and musician, and I give him my highest recommendation. Gus truly made our wedding ceremony and event to remember and took great care in making sure that he was prepared in every way. We are so glad that we hired Gus because he really cared about doing an excellent job and he was very flexible and accommodating. Gus was also very responsive and available by telephone and email leading up to the wedding, which made it a real pleasure to work with him on the selection of songs and practical details. We will certainly hire him again.

Gus was amazing! The bag pipes were a huge hit at the wedding. Gus played as guests were entering and again as they were leaving. He stayed longer than expected and took plenty of pictures with guests. He even had a nice long conversation with my 93 year old grandfather. He is a very sweet man and very profession. Gus is very skilled at playing the pipes. My husband wants to have Gus at every family function from here on out! Thank you so much!
