FuneralReviewed on January 8, 2024From Wayne, NJ

Al (The Royal Piper) was excellent. Very responsive and easy to work with. Rate was very reasonable. He played beautiful music. I highly recommend him. Great job.

FuneralReviewed on December 19, 2023From Sea Cliff, NY

Al, the Royal Piper, was there on time, and played "Amazing Grace" beautifully. There wasn't a dry eye, as he walked off solo, continuing to play Scotland the Brave. It was a powerful moment for everyone and such a wonderful sendoff for my dear friend who passed away . I will definitely recommend Al the Royal Piper, and will hire him again, in the future. 5 stars..
