  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$200 - $500 per event
I am available to play the Great Highland Bagpipes at weddings, memorial services, military functions, golf tournaments and other special events throughout the Hampton Roads region of Virginia and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I have more than 30 years of experience as a solo and band piper and nearly 20 as a paid performer.

I am a Grade 1 soloist in the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association (EUSPBA) and a member of two bands: Tidewater Pipes & Drums (Grade 4) and Greater Richmond Pipes & Drums (Grade 3). I have performed in the Virginia International Tattoo many times and was featured as the "Lone Piper" in the 2011 show.

Please contact me to discuss how I can help make your event special.

Note: If I am unable to play for you, I will be happy to refer you to a bandmate or another qualified piper.

I cannot thank Jim enough for playing the bagpipes at my wedding. Everyone enjoyed listening to him and the second I heard him playing I had tears of joy! Thanks Jim.

He did a great job leading the official party in a retirement ceremony. We are so glad we chose him. Highly recommended for military ceremonies!

Jim was terrific, really made the kickoff for our annual gathering of our MacNeil (Barra) Family Reunion memorable. He was very accommodating and easy to work with on scheduling his time - particularly in light of Hurricane Matthew's impending arrival that afternoon. He was also very personable, talking about how he got started with the bagpipes, posed for pictures with all and even letting my Grand Daughter Ella pose with his pipes. The Kids were amazed and delighted as were the Adults. Would absolutely recommend Jim to any event interested in this service in the future. Mike Antoniazzi
