$225 - $475 per event
I would like to introduce myself, and offer my services. I am a very good bagpiper, who has played for many funerals, weddings, and special events. I learned to play the pipes as a child, with the Kilties in Stevens Point in the 60s. When I came to Milwaukee for work in the 80s I honed my skills by playing for the Milwaukee & District and Billy Mitchell bands for over a dozen years. These were years of playing as a group in parades, shows, and competitions. I enjoyed the challenge of competition both solo and as a band. My love is to play solo. I have played in the wilderness of the Minnesota Quetico, at fly-ins in Canada, for scouting events, around State Parks at dusk, in Scotland (including the Glencoe Mountains, often considered one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland, just above Clachaig Inn), and at many family gatherings. I play because I enjoy it, and because people love to hear me play. My pipes are strong and clear, with an even tone, and evoke strong emotions in those who hear them. Pipes make a happy event like a wedding even more joyful and an event like a funeral all the more dignified and honorable.

Joseph was excellent! He was very prompt with e-mails making sure every detail for my proposal to my now fiance were taken care of. Joseph even helped give me some ideas to best surprise her. He was very professional and very talented. The look on her face when he started playing was priceless! Can't wait to book this guy for our wedding!
