Amazing! Not only was he quick to respond, he was so polite and professional. He went out of his way to put a lot together because a funeral service at Arlington National Cemetery for a fallen Green Beret. Mr. O’Brien played for a long period of time while the Soldiers went through a long line of approximately 200 people to say their goodbyes to their teammate. It was impressive and I can’t imagine how that part of the service would have gone without his beautiful music. It was truly touching and his exit was remarkable as he played a last note as the last Soldier punched his crest into the casket and saluted. We highly recommend Mr. O’Brien and would use him again!

Kevin went out of his way to create an experience for our daughter's wedding. It was not an easy venue, yet Kevin navigated it well and created lasting memories for us and our guests.

Kevin was very accommodating and an excellent piper. We had some last minute major changes on the morning of our service at Arlington and Kevin didn't even flinch. I would definitely hire him again.

Me.O’Brien was gracious enough to work with me in a short time period for the burial of my father. He dressed-the-part and played the beautiful bagpipes to send my Scottsman father back to the highlands....highly recommend!! Also, very fair pricing!!

Mr. O’Brien is a lovely piper. He provided very appropriate and moving music as we said our final good-byes to our Scottish-Canadian mother both at the cemetery and in the church yard. It was beautiful! Mr. O’Brien was prompt, dressed appropriately in a lovely kilt, and easy to work with - very accommodating.
