Hello, I am Jari Villanueva better known around the nation as the TAPS BUGLER. Bugle calls and trumpet fanfares can be an important part of many special events. Whether sounding a call for attention or announcement, sounding To The Color at a patriotic ceremony, playing "To The Post" at a racing event, playing the National Anthem, performing "Taps" at a funeral or memorial service, sounding "The Last Post" at ceremonies, Taps Bugler can provide this service to you. I am a retired bugler from the US Air Force Band and sounded "Taps" at Arlington National Cemetery for 23 years. I have performed at Memorial Day and Veterans Day services in the Baltimore/Washington area, at many funerals and church services and at many Civil War related events. I also sound trumpet fanfares at weddings and special events.

I sound Taps in a military uniform, Civil War uniform or dark suit, to fit the occasion. I am available on short notice and perform on a real bugle.

We use the proceeds we receive to support TAPSBUGLER and TAPS FOR VETERANS organizations.

Jari was perfect just what I was thinking about for our daughters wedding ceremony. I would not hesitate to recommend him, he was a pleasure to work with for the singers and organists at the wedding. Again 100 percent satisfied.

Jari was the Taps Bugler at a large Memorial Service at Marine Memorial Chapel at Quantico, and did an outstanding job. He was extremely knowledgeable about how honors would be presented in the indoor setting, and created a presentation that was perfectly timed with the honor guard. He also provided instruction to another bugler who was on hand to play Reveille, and made everything go smoothly with that portion of the presentation. I look forward to working with him again in the future.
