Your event is important; relying on a talented, professional, and trusted bagpiper will ensure a successful experience. Nicolas is frequently praised for his musicianship and professionalism, whether for 5 guests at a private engagement, or for over 5 million like he performed at in the International Nova Scotia Tattoo! Nicolas has been professionally playing the bagpipes at hundreds of private and public venues for over 17 years throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Nicolas originally played with the Capital Region Celtic's Grade III competition band in Upstate New York competing nationwide. Nicolas then played a vital role in the Pipe Band at The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina. Nicolas lead over 40 musicians in both the Grade IV & V competition and performance bands and taught one-on-one lessons with incoming freshman, college faculty, and played at numerous private events and weddings. Under Nicolas Stoker's leadership, the Citadel Pipe Band competed and won numerous competitions in southeastern highland games. In 2014, Nicolas led the Citadel's entire pipe band to perform in front of millions of viewers at the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo in Halifax, Nova Scotia. During this performance, The Citadel was the sole bagpipe band representative of the United States.

Nicolas is always early to events to go over the timeframe and any last minute changes with the event coordinator, he is always flexible and adapts quickly. Audio samples are included in his profile for you to listen to. Nicolas has deep Scottish roots with his great grandfather emigrating to the U.S. from Scotland being in the clan MacGregor.

Nicolas plays all of his tunes from memory, if you have a special request, let him know at the time of booking and he will accommodate! Nicolas plays the full-size Great Highland Bagpipe for nearly all of his performances, if your event has a sound restriction, Nicolas can also play a set of "fireside pipes" which are a miniature version of the bagpipes with the sound level of a piano. Nicolas is very flexible and he can provide sound and video samples of both instruments.

Book the experienced and professional bagpiper and you will enjoy a memorable event. Nicolas will provide a genuine, enjoyable, and professional experience for your wedding, funeral, special event, or other occasion. All his reviews are 5 stars and 100%!

Nicolas added that extra special touch to our wedding day. He was remarkable to work with and I got the chills when he started playing and saw my bride begin to walk down the isle. He knocked it out of the park with the processional song and then again as we exited. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about him. Wouldn’t hesitate to book him again. Awesome Job Nicolas!!
