Review by Donna M.

FuneralReviewed on February 7, 2014From Santa Clarita, CA

Darrell Calvillo is an outstanding bagpiper who made this booking so easy! We needed a bagpiper for a funeral of our dear friend's father. Darrell was the first to respond AND by phone. He began our conversation by extending his condolences. He was so personal, professional, and kind--exuding warmth and humor. While others responded later via email, we knew Darrell was OUR bagpiper! He made the planning SO easy. He readily responded by phone and arrived beautifully dressed in his formal kilt. He led the procession with class and dignity playing Amazing Grace and later Danny Boy. It was live-streamed to Ireland and they were also very impressed! Thank you, Darrell.

WeddingReviewed on July 16, 2016From Lompoc, CA

Darrell and his band (2 pipers and 2 drummers) were a fabulous addition to our wedding! Our guests repeatedly commented on their talent. Even more, Darrell was unfailingly accommodating and professional, leaving us with no doubt whatsoever that we picked the right group! Hire them!!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 23, 2011From Los Angeles, CA

Darrell did an excellent job at my daughter's wedding! All of the guests absolutely raved about him and his group of pipers and drummers - it MADE the entire wedding experience extraordinary! I highly recommend Darrell - he was very responsive to my phone calls and emails, he worked well with the surprise element for the groom, and his music was literally awesome!
