I want to start by saying Mr. Hubbard was GREAT! When I saw the tears in both my parents eyes when he started playing his bagpipe for my mom's 80th bday party, it was a special moment. He played the songs ppl had requested. It was awesome! Really a special time. I was honored that he would still come during Covd and all the smoke!! Very kind.
Birthday Party (Adult)
Wonderful player, we had discussed the volume of the bagpipes prior to the service. I have heard bagpipes that were really too loud, but Neil somehow modified the bagpipe sound so that it was really pleasing level of volume. Highly recommend
Best thing I did for my cousin's funeral & everyone loved his piping. 100% high-class professional & very adaptable to our changing requirements on the fly. My only wish is to hear more of his repertoire! Highly recommended!
Seattle's Bagpiper Neil Hubbard’s Response:
Thank you so much for your kind words, Tom. It was a pleasure to be able to provide some music for you and your family. Take care.
More than I expected. Neil’s experience and professionalism brought a true honor to the memorial for my Dad.
He was amazing. Gorgeous music, an instinct for mood, consummate professional
Birthday Party (Adult)
Neil was a delight to work with in planning his surprise appearance at my mother's 90th birthday party. He made great suggestions, responded to my input, was friendly and concise in email communication---and gave us all a wonderful performance on the big day (which was actually his own birthday as well!). He went out of his way to make my mother feel special and thrilled all our guests too.
Neil did a fantastic job at our wedding! He was very professional, from initial conversations about music to the actual day of the event. I highly recommend Neil, he is exceptional.
He was honest up front accommodating and professional to work with! Greatful for his dedication and his background in outreach and genuine love of his profession
Neil was amazing! Super friendly and definitely made our wedding amazing! I highly recommend him!
Five stars in each category are not enough for Neil Hubbard. He is exceptional in all aspects of his work.
Immediately responded to my request. Knowledgeable, familiar with the venue, kind, clear and timely communication, excellent musician. A+++
Neil did a great job at the retirement party for our colleague. He was engaged in the event and very personable. He played the songs we had requested in advance, and took several requests during his performance. Our Scottish colleague had tears in his eyes during Neil's performance!
Neil was so kind and accommodating for our Celebration of Life. We received so many compliments of his performance and his professionalism. Thank you so much Neil, Dave was surely pleased as well as he loved the bagpipes.
Neil was wonderful to deal with. His contribution to our father's memorial service at Tahoma National Cemetery was wonderful. He was well versed in traditions of military funerals. We are grateful for his contribution to the farewell. Not being a musician, I cannot comment on Neil's musical talent, but everything went very well.
Neil was professional, prompt, informative, great music choice, and everyone was super impressed with Neil.
