FuneralReviewed on May 22, 2021From Califon, NJ

Best Piper EVER!!!! The Royal Piper was an absolute pleasure to work with!! From the time I secured him on Bash to the day he played for my husbands Celebration of Life service he was so helpful with recommendations for our play list and accommodated our special requests. He is wonderfully talented and everyone who attended enjoyed his playing so much. I would recommend him in a second to anyone who wants a Stellar musician with lots of experience and loads of talent!!!

The Royal Piper is authentic, so professional and absolutely fantastic! He is the real deal! He put the royal touch on our daughter’s wedding and added so much sentimental meaning to our day! Our Heartfelt Gratitude goes to Al, The Royal Piper!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 22, 2021From Manasquan, NJ

The Royal Piper was amazing from start to finish! We hired him last minute as a surprise for my father's 85th - the communication was great he arrived early just incase our time table was off, and it was, so that was really appreciated. He was also gracious enough to take some extra time so we could take some photos with him.. Hands down just an all around nice professional gentleman and a great piper..... I will absolutely hire the Royal Piper again, & I recommend you hire him too, he will not disappoint you.....
