Jack is a wonderful person and an amazing piper! He was courteous and professional from start to finish. Jack reached out to my request promptly and with great time and effort expressed how much my request meant to him. I had asked for a piper to come to my moms house and surprise her for her birthday. Since covid, and her immune issues, she has been inside her home for a year now, wondering when the day was going to come where she can feel safe again. Jack came to the rescue and lifted my moms spirits. He played beautifully, along with his son who is an awesome drummer! It was a beautiful moment for our family and we will forever be grateful. Thanks Jack!
I am Jack Heins, better known as “Piper Jack.” I started playing the pipes at 15 and have had the joy of playing solo and in bands throughout Central New York ever since.
In 2003, I was a co-founder of the City of Syracuse Highland Pipes and Drums where I am honored to lead the band as its Pipe Major. As such, if your occasion requires number of musicians, I can create an appropriate ensemble.
Forming the band has allowed me the opportunity to combine all my passions: family unity, love of music, and the desire to keep Celtic traditions alive through pipe music, singing and dancing.
Let's talk about how my talent, skills, passion and experiences can enhance your upcoming event.
Weddings, Funerals, Birthday Celebrations, Family Gatherings, Grand Openings, Special Occasions and more!
