FuneralReviewed on August 10, 2023From Arlington, VA

I was not in attendance, but I received a text from the widow who was so impressed, and thanked me for arranging and providing this extra tribute to her husband

Garrett McKenzie:

Thank you for the kind words. I am grateful my music could help during this difficult time.

Review by ERIN R.

QuinceañeraReviewed on April 15, 2023From Falls Church, VA

Since Garrett had never performed for a quinceanera event (rite-of-passage celebration for 15 year old Hispanic young ladies, like a wedding without a groom), he went the extra step of coming to the event dress rehearsal the evening before to meet us, practice the entrance, and learn more about the celebration. For entrance, he was impeccably dressed to the nines with the whole nine yards of kilt and wowed the audience. It was a cultural exchange for many of the Hispanic crowd, to experience a spectacular playing of the pipes close up.
