I have been piping for nearly 13 years. I have performed in over 85 wedding ceremonies since I first began playing in high school. I truly enjoy working with my clients in order to perfectly position the music of the pipes into their special event. This is a lot of fun for me, I have met so many great people who keep in touch on their anniversaries to remind me how important a bagpipe performance was to them. This is a very rewarding gig!

Not all bagpipers are the same - this cannot be stressed enough. This instrument is very, very difficult to play, and even more difficult to play well. 4 reeds going at one, all of which have to be in tune with one another. I encourage all those who are considering hiring a bagpiper to require music samples to ensure musical quality. Be sure to hear the bagpiper who will be playing your event well in advance to ensure musicality, professionalism, and talent! There is a difference, ensure the best for your performance!

John was ABSOLUTLY AMAZING.... He will leave you speachless. The first time we heard him play, he brought Tears to my eyes. Not only is he a talented man but a wonderful person. We only met him once prior to him playing at our wedding and he was so Professional, and helped us thru our music selection. We would Strongly RECOMMEND HIM FOR ANY EVENT!!! OUR GUEST WERE STUNNED AND TRULY ENJOYED EVERY MOMENT OF JOHN'S PLAYING...His talent is so diverse he played Ava Maria for us even the children requested songs and John treated them to Jingle Bells per their request...there is NO ONE WHO CAN COMPARE TO JOHN!!! HE IS SIMPLY THE BEST OUT THERE!!! THANKS JOHN!
