BACKGROUND:
I am a piper with 17+ years experience. I played with McGuire's Pipe Band in Pensacola, Fl for the first 15 of those years (Photos #11&12) and, for the last two, have relocated to the Fredericksburg, Va. area.

I hired J.R. to play at my wedding as a surprise to my husband. I was planning a move across the country at the same time as my wedding and J.R. could not have been more patient with me. I could tell before meeting him in person that he is a warm, genuine, and professional musician. I was right. He took the time to understand my vision and made it happen with ease. Having him escort my husband and I into the reception as we were introduced was one of our favorite memories of the night and we got so many compliments on the music he played during the cocktail hour. If you're looking for a bagpiper, look no further. It doesn't get more authentic than J.R.

Our expectations were exceeded in every way. JR didn't just enhance the party- he made the day. We hired him to perform for our Robert Burns Dinner, but as this was a relatively new tradition for us, we didn't know what we didn't know. JR worked with us through several emails and phone calls (he even coached our guestes throught their assigned " bit parts") and helped us plan a program that resulted in one of the best parties we have ever thrown (and we throw many). His repetoire of poetry and song (recited from memory, in full brougue!) is rivaled only by his facility with the pipes. We have never received so many congrats on an event. BEST CHOICE EVER!

J. R. Arthur was the highlight of our event. We had so many Marines question where we were able tto find him and if we would book him again for our Marine Corps Birthday Ball nex t year. He is unmatched in this category!!! We are looking forward to having him work with us again and again!!!
