About
Bagpiping Performance, Pageantry, and Personality.

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!

I/we have also performed at a number of these community events:
LaFayette Apple Festival
Skaneateles' Dickens of a Christmas Celebration
9/11 Ceremonies throughout the region
Relays for Life
Shamrock Walk/Run
Paige's Butterfly Walk/Run
Bikers for Cancer
Syracuse Arts & Crafts Festival
St. Patrick's Day Parade and Celebrations
Apple Festival at Central Square
Central New York Scottish Games

I pride myself in always being prompt, polite and personable. I look forward to talking with you about how “Piper Jack” can add a pleasant and unforgettable element to your upcoming special event.

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!

Hi Daniel, We had a wonderful time "Surprising" your Mom today!!! Yes, it has been a very "challenging" year for all of us!!!! I'm so glad Mike and I could bring a smile to your Mom's face!!!! I know we had to "social distance" today Daniel, but I am looking forward to the day when I can "safely" give your Mom a proper "Highland" hug!!!! Keep in touch! Looking forward to seeing you again! Cheers! Piper Jack

Piper Jack was just the person we needed for my husband’s small service due to COVID. We loved the sound from his Scottish short pipes as he was easily heard when he walked around but not overpowering so people couldn’t talk. He was accommodating, supportive and comforting. It was apparent that he saw his role in the service as much more than a job. We had many positive comments regarding his service and would certainly hire him again.

Dear Rosemary, Thank you for taking the time to fill out the survey the "Bash" company sent you and for writing a review about your experience with "Piper Jack"! It was my first time visiting your beautiful little village of Newport. I loved meeting you and the rest of your family and thought you all planned out a beautiful service. Thank you again Ro, for giving me the honor of piping Jim "Home"!!!! Sincerely, Piper Jack

Everyone is still talking about the Syracuse Highland Piper band that came to Tully. The pageantry, music, singers and stories were wonderful...a very unique and memorable experience! We've asked them to return again next year!
