Neil was exceptional. He contacted me before the event to ensure all the details were in order. He was prompt, delighted our guests and was such a gracious performer. I would hire him again in a second. Bravo!
Neil was tremendous. He had the difficult task of playing over disturbing traffic close by and managed to set a tone that was beautiful and soothing. He was prompt and his rendition of Amazing Grace was eloquent. Very much a gentleman at such a sorrowful time. Thank you so much Neil. The Kaumans family.
Neil did an excellent job. He accommodated my requests, offered suggestions, and remained flexible the day of. He was timely, respectful and courteous. Could not have asked any more of him. I highly recommend Neil as a bagpiper -- it's a live performance that everyone will remember.
Neil was an amazing addition to our wedding day! He was very prompt when I first had the initial questions about bringing in a bag piper performer into the wedding, and answered all of the questions that my husband and I had. He was VERY professional the day of the wedding, looking both sharp, clean, and friendly! He was incredibly talented being the highlight performer of our wedding ceremony, and I will cherish the memories of the pipes for years and decades to come. I recommend Neil's performances for anyone who is looking for a really special touch to any occasion. The way he handles everything is so incredibly great. Thanks NEIL! Love, Meaghan and Thomas.
Neil played for my mother's burial. It was pouring rain. He assisted arriving mourners with an umbrella. He stood in the rain and played flawless renditions of "Danny Boy" and other Irish tunes, carefully judging his distance from the assembly to produce the perfect volume. There was not a dry eye to be found. It was perfect. Neil was warm and professional. I highly recommend his services.
Neil made our wedding so special. He is not only a gifted musician, but very professional in every way. Such a nice gentleman. Everyone thought he was excellent and we feel very honored that we got to have him play the bagpipes at our wedding. Sincerely, Richard & Adele
We felt like we had known Neil all of our lives and he was one of the family. He was so attentive to the little ones, answered everyone's questions. He sat down and was part of the service! His piping was excellant! We were sorry to see him go, and hope we meet again in the future. Neil was spot on time, hit all his marks which were made up at the time and was a huge hit with all of our guests! Thank you so much, I know Mom was smiling in heaven. Perhaps our 4 year old grandson Landon will be inspired to play bagpipes some day, I know his Dad wants to get a cool tat on his leg like Neils! God Bless you and thank you again.

Neil was excellent! He was very accommodating and checked in prior to the memorial service. He arrived early and performed just as discussed. My mom was definitely smiling from above as her final wish was made possible with his help. It was a truly moving afternoon and we are so very thankful that Neil was available (even though the Highland Games were going on). With our heartfelt thanks and gratitude, the family of Kathleen McKinnon Stewart. :)
Birthday Party (Adult)
Neil was the highlight of my husband's 50th birthday bash! He was dressed in the full piper garb and his piping was amazing. He went with the flow and helped us pull off the surprise and posed for pictures with our guests who where tickled to have their picture taken with him. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for the best piper out there!
Neil was the consummate professional from beginning to end! His part in my father's funeral was flawless. Musically, he was spot on, and he was especially good at modulating his volume when we were inside the church. He was careful, quick and courteous with his communication. I would hire him again at the first opportunity!
