Some typical comments received from previous happy customers...
"I found Gary from an Internet search. I contacted many bag pipers and he was one of the more reasonable pipers, in terms of price. Because his price was a little more affordable than some others, I was a bit worried about what we would get. Would he be on time? Would he be professional? Would he be a good musician? We were coming all the way from California to England to celebrate our Mom's 70th birthday, so we wanted the very best in entertainment. I emailed Gary and I was pleasantly delighted at his professionalism and genuine personality. I worked with him to create the celebration for our Mom, he travelled to Wotton House, where we were staying and then surprised my Mom and over 70 guests. He took requests, looked fantastic, played amazing pipes, was charming, easy to work with, and down-to-earth. We couldn't have asked for more!"

"Gary - thank you so much for playing the bagpipes at our wedding. You were brilliant and your music added so much to our ceremony and throughout the whole day. Being 'piped away' on our honeymoon to Highland Cathedral is one of our favourite memories, and will stay with us forever."

“Deb and I Just wanted to say a huge thanks to you Gary for playing your bagpipes so brilliantly for us in Bath on our big day. The guests couldn’t get enough of it and the wedding party felt three times the size with all the Bath passers by stopping outside the church in admiration of your playing. I’ve experienced many play the bagpipes but there’s playing bagpipes the way you do with real energy, enthusiasm, genuine pride and passion that makes it special. And despite the fact your lungs must have been bursting, the requests kept coming and so did the tunes."
Best wishes - Glyn & Deborah.
"Dear Gary, Thank you so much for playing your bagpipes at my wedding. Firstly leading the groom's party onto the village green in front of the pub where all the guests were was brilliant. So many people commented on what a great atmosphere you created and particulary how strikingly unsual your blue tweed coat and tartan was. Secondly leading us into dinner as a married couple was wonderful. You were a very colourful addition to a lovely day."

"Gary, thanks so much for giving our wedding day something extra-special. Kate and I were thrilled to walk down the aisle to your playing and everyone commented on the magical, spine-tingling sound of the bagpipes in full flow. Brilliant work. Look forward to booking you again for future events."
Nolan and Kate, Brecon
"Thank you so much for playing at our wedding , the sound and the atmosphere created by the bagpipes was truly fantastic. Having a piper at our special day really added that something a little bit special to the occasion. A great performance , thank you so much Gary."
Craig and Siobhan Bell, Brighton
"Gary, many thanks for playing at our wedding. I’m sure many of the guests hadn’t heard the rousing rich harmonic sounds of bagpipes before – let alone the locals, who must have heard the music as it wafted around the Paarl wine farms. Not only did it add to the make-up of our special day but it gave Simone and I breathing space to check on last minute arrangements as our guests were being entertained. Thanks again!"
Tom & Simone, South Africa.
"Being in a rural vineyard North of Auckland, New Zealand – we don’t get to hear the sound of bagpipes very often! You played at our wedding after we had said our vows, whilst standing on the balcony outside and looking over all our guests, vineyard and lake. It was a very surreal and magical time for us and our friends and family. For years after our wedding we still got comments from friends about our “cool friend from Scotland who played the bagpipes”. Thanks for everything you did for us on our wedding day too Gary - you are very professional and would recommend you to anyone else wanting to experience your special bagpipe talent for their occasion... and you look pretty good in a kilt too!"
