"Our wedding day could not have been more perfect and you definitely contributed to the beautiful day! When I pulled up in the limousine and heard you piping I started to smile... and cry, it meant a lot to me that you were playing and you looked great in front of the old stone church!
Bridget and Jim
Bryan and I wanted to let you know you did a fantastic job. We would both recommend you to anyone who asks - you are very talented and professional - and good with directions too (thank you for helping my uncle get to the wedding!).
I can’t thank you enough for coming on such short notice. Laura’s dad loved the sound of the bagpipes and your playing gave great joy to my Mother in Law, her family and friends.
The eulogy was given by Joe D., an old family friend that knew John since they were five - they joined the Navy together. Joe spoke of their time together growing up in NYC, how her parents met and their time together in boot camp. At the family gathering later that afternoon, Joe thanked me for having you there, he said he was overwhelmed when you played “Anchors Aweigh”. He said it was a great welcome home for a sailor.
Once again, thank you so much.
I am so glad you got in touch since I wanted to do the same. You did a spectacular job and added a beautiful touch to our day. Thank you so much! We will definitely keep your e-mail handy to pass along to our friends who are getting married.
I thought it was funny to see you practicing in the field as we drove by in our phat Strech Navigator. I pointed you out to my groomsmen- one of them is a friend who lives outside of Dublin and he started giving me a hard time when I said you must have been practicing. He asked me if I ever heard you play before and I said “no”. So he said “he must be getting in a chapter of Bagpiping for Dummies before the service” and that you were out there reading the user manual... “you are now the proud owner of a new set of bagpipes”.
Needless to say he was joking and obviously way off the mark because you did a phenomenal job!
I’m sorry I didn’t get over to introduce myself, but you did a terrific job. Thank you for coming to LBI and for making our daughter’s wedding extra special! If ever I need a piper again ( I have one more daughter), I’ll be sure to count on you! God bless you.
Thank you for visiting our class and teaching us about the bagpipes.It was very fun and very loud! We can’t wait for you to come back next year! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Make any occasion memorable with authentic Irish and Scottish bagpipe music. Ideal for weddings, civil unions, anniversary parties, birthdays, funerals, memorials or any special occasion. I travel to New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania offering affordable rates that work within your schedule.
My sixteen years of bagpiping has allowed me to play for the Chieftains, 9/11 ceremonies, governors, politicians, plus the occasional celebrity, as well as at major venues including Giants Stadium, Meadowlands Arena and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. My piping was also included on NBC's "Mercy" and in the "Rules of Golf" DVD created by the PGA.
