JR was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable about funeral procedures and protocols at Arlington National Cemetery which made our decision to hire him an easy one. His performance was the perfect ending to our dad's final farewell. We were very pleased with his playing and would definitely recommend him to anyone interested in hiring a bagpiper.

JR was absolutely wonderful. We hired him as our piper at our wedding and got more than a piper - we got a full out host! He greated guests as they arrived, played on his Scottish accent and even intro'd the bridal party in to our own personalised songs and commentary. He is a talented musician as well as an entertainer!
