FuneralReviewed on July 27, 2021From Cannon Beach, OR

John gave us exactly the moment we wanted for our mom’s remembrance. He was easy to work with in advance of the event, and on the day he arrived well on time and was very kind and thoughtful. His performance was exactly as requested, and beautiful as well. I could not have asked for a better experience.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on January 31, 2021From Kelso, WA

We hired John for my Mother’s 80th Birthday party, and she was absolutely thrilled! He played a song she requested, and of course Happy Birthday! It was nice to be able to have some wonderful entertainment during this Pandemic. Thanks John!

Cascadia Bagpiper - John Goff:

It was so nice to come and play for your mother's bday! Kind regards, John.

John was amazing. His talent is incredible. He knew instinctively how long to play for each resident as he walked around our building. The residents were so moved by his performance, and I would highly recommend him. Just fantastic.
