Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 12, 2020From Monroe, WA

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.

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:

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.

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.

Retirement PartyReviewed on December 29, 2017From Seattle, WA

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.

FuneralReviewed on August 23, 2017From Kent, WA

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 exceptional. He contacted me before the event to ensure all the details were in order. He was prompt, delighted our guests and was such a gracious performer. I would hire him again in a second. Bravo!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 15, 2017From Tacoma, WA

Neil played for our wedding and was perfect tion. Having a dress malfunction right before walking down the aisle, my wedding planner asked "what do you need?" I replyed," please ask the piper to play, so I will calm down". The moment the notes hit the air I was calm, happy and ready to go! My groom felt the same way...and our family and guests were thrilled! Thank you so much Neil for bringing a little magic to our day. Hugs and smiles, Deborah and Herbie

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on December 8, 2018From Kenmore, WA

Neil added such a grand finishing touch to my dad and uncle's 90th birthday celebration. His playing is first class, and he was sensitive to the volume requests: big and inspiring for his entrance, and quieter for the dinner hour. He sincerely appreciated how special it was to celebrate these twin 90 year olds' birthday, twins with Scottish roots!

FuneralReviewed on July 25, 2017From Spanaway, WA

Mr. Hubbard was a true professional. It was my fathers funeral and his wishes to have a piper play for his final journey. Mr. Hubbard made this happen, with his knowledge and his amazing talent. Thank you Neil Hubbard for sending a Scotsman home (my Father) with the sounds of your amazing bagpipes.

I am so grateful I found Neil to play at my Dads Funeral. I know he loved it. He was so thoughtful and asked if we wanted him to walk with us to the crematorium. I was worried his time was up but he wasn't, he just wanted to keep playing and honor him prior to cremation. Love his heart and dedication.

Memorial ServiceReviewed on September 9, 2016From Redmond, WA

Neil was tremendous. He had the difficult task of playing over disturbing traffic close by and managed to set a tone that was beautiful and soothing. He was prompt and his rendition of Amazing Grace was eloquent. Very much a gentleman at such a sorrowful time. Thank you so much Neil. The Kaumans family.

FuneralReviewed on July 8, 2017From Edmonds, WA

My Dad loved bagpipe music so Neil played for my Dad's gravesite memorial. Neil was professional and warm on the phone and very accommodating with music, even made suggestions when we didnt have ideas. Was also very gracious with our lack of specific schedule until morning of the event.

FuneralReviewed on June 5, 2016From Seattle, WA

Neil did an excellent job. He accommodated my requests, offered suggestions, and remained flexible the day of. He was timely, respectful and courteous. Could not have asked any more of him. I highly recommend Neil as a bagpiper -- it's a live performance that everyone will remember.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on May 31, 2016From Olympia, WA

Neil was an amazing addition to our wedding day! He was very prompt when I first had the initial questions about bringing in a bag piper performer into the wedding, and answered all of the questions that my husband and I had. He was VERY professional the day of the wedding, looking both sharp, clean, and friendly! He was incredibly talented being the highlight performer of our wedding ceremony, and I will cherish the memories of the pipes for years and decades to come. I recommend Neil's performances for anyone who is looking for a really special touch to any occasion. The way he handles everything is so incredibly great. Thanks NEIL! Love, Meaghan and Thomas.
