Five stars for Jeremy Shilley in all categories is not an exaggeration. Jeremy's professionalism set the tone for our event as he arrived in full regalia. Our party guests were treated to outstanding playing of the pipes! Jeremy demonstrated a warmth and generosity with his music and shared with us a deep knowledge and passion for his instrument. As well as playing the bagpipes for us, we had asked that he talk about their history, construction and function. He did it all, far exceeding expectations. My Son-In-Law said, "He was able to answer all my questions!" Jeremy Shilley is worth every one of the five stars. Thank you Jeremy for a WONDERFUL performance.
