Melody was great. She even anticipated the slight rain and handled it perfectly. Everyone was extremely pleased with hoer performance.

Melody was perfect. She offered suggestions for tunes, and was the ideal accent for celebrating the life of our dear departed lass.

Happy HourReviewed on March 16, 2017From Mountain View, CA

Melody was easy to work with - the set up was effortless. Melody arrived on time and knew exactly what to do. Melody engaged in conversation with our employees who wanted to know more about the bagpipes and her experience. Last but nor least, her music was fun and flawless for our event! Thank you Melody!

Melody Pipes:

Thank you, Amy, for engaging me and for your review. It was a fun event!

FuneralReviewed on December 2, 2016From Campbell, CA

Melody was fantastic. She was very professional yet approachable. We could not have been happier with our choice. My mother was surprised and so touched with Melody playing Danny Boy. I would have no problem recommending Melody to a friend. Thank you for a great easy to use web site. Happy New Year.

Memorial ServiceReviewed on November 11, 2016From Half Moon Bay, CA

Melody Pipes played at my mother's ash scattering service on the bluffs at Half Moon Bay's Venice beach. Melody was very accommodating to work with and provided suggestions on songs to play. She arrived early and warmed up so we had an opportunity to hear her before the actual service. She was dressed in full regalia. Between her playing and the overcast day on the bluffs, we felt like we were in Scotland. Her rendition of "Amazing Grace" was perfectly paced for a solemn occasion, and it was just beautiful. Melody did a great job and we would hire again.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 16, 2015From Monte Rio, CA

What a special night. I had Melody play at my mom's 60th birthday and I kept it a surprise from everyone. Melody was great and met my boyfriend nearby and came in playing my mom's favorite song to the entire party's delight. It was really special. Melody is an incredibly talented musician and so nice. She spoke with several guests and I had just about everyone come up to tell me how wonderful it was to have her there. She put together a really great list of songs even though I was pretty clueless about what she should play. I would recommend her 110% for any event!

Memorial ServiceReviewed on August 15, 2014From Saratoga, CA

Melody Pipes went above & beyond in making our event so special. She was prompt in responding to emails/phone calls & very helpful in selection of a variety of pieces she played, which made it so unique & personal for the Dedication of trees in Memory of my Father. She gave of her time to go to the site of the event & meet with the event coordinator. Melody is so friendly, very professional & outstanding in her playing, giving her very best & high standards in all that she does. All attendees were very impressed & enjoyed her music & talent. Some asked her about the bagpipes & she graciously answered every question. I HIGHLY recommend Melody Pipes, she's the BEST!!

FuneralReviewed on June 2, 2018From Walnut Creek, CA

Melody was on time, played beautifully. My only disappointment was I payed for her to play for 45 min and she was distracted by people who were not even part of the funeral chatting with her. Honestly? I didn’t hear much music played.

Melody Pipes:

Dear Edna , I honestly felt you were pleased with my services. I am sorry you felt need to give me an unfavorable review. I arrived 90 minutes before the service, professionally dressed. I tuned my pipes and was in place before the agreed-upon time. Before you arrived, I started piping 30 minutes earlier than we agreed as early mourners were arriving. I piped for over an hour before Mass and 15 minutes after. I played Irish Tunes as requested, and even learned a new tune to play an honor of your family's Irish heritage. I was not distracted by passers-by, only polite in answering questions briefly, and then returning to piping. I appreciate that you liked my playing.

Memorial ServiceReviewed on April 25, 2019From El Sobrante, CA

First Melody played beautifully. It was a memorial service for a veteran and she selected wonderful military pieces to play. Her Amazing Grace finished our program and was just wonderful. I also appreciated her flexibility; we started late and had to shift her timeline. She accepted all with grace and professionalism. I highly recommend Melody if you are looking for a bagpiper.
